How to Draw Cupcakes

Every manicurist must learn how to draw cupcakes, seeing that these patterns are in very high demand these days. In fact, it is fairly easy to create a cupcake nail art. Here are the steps:

  • Prepare the Nails: As always, no nail art will stick if your nails are not well prepared with a strong manicure and ready to accept the several layers of polish. 
  • Use the Base Coat: Once the nails are prepped, apply a layer of a strong base coat to smoothen the surface of the nail. Let the coat dry ut completely.
  • Start Painting the Cupcake (style 1): How to draw cupcakes? Easy. If you are drawing a regular cupcake, follow these instructions. First, paint the top one-third of the nail from the tip in a base brown or purple color. You can use color blocking techniques to ensure a smooth finish. Once this layer has dried out, paint longitudinal stripes in a contrasting color on top of this section. Next, you can paint a cloud-shaped icing in white, or any such demure shade atop the striped block. The curls of the icing can dribble into the striped block. That makes it look artistic.
  • Start Painting the Cupcake (style 2): Another way of doing this is to reverse the cupcake. You can start by painting the nail from the cuticle upwards in the base color, covering about two-thirds the nail. The curve of the tip of the nail forms a natural scoop of icing, which can be shown to dribble into the base block. Both forms of painting can be finished by adding small blobs of colorful paint and topped with a red blob of cherry.
  • Use the Top Coat: Once the artwork has dried out, finish it by coating it with a layer of top coat.
