40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Food

I'm playing catch up at the moment and this is the prompt for 2 weeks ago, which was food.

I wanted to do something a little different so I created a design inspired by the secret rainbow cakes.  Those cakes that are covered in plain icing and look quite simple until you cut into them and the sponge inside is a rainbow of colours, sometimes layered and sometimes swirled.  I went with the swirled option.

More details after the jump.

I started with a base of Barry M Pearl on all the nails and covered this with a coat of Seche Vite to give a good base to work on. This is a slight twist on the standard white as it is one of the Silk range and has a great frosted shimmer.

For the cake slice on the accent nail I created a drag marble on a silicone mat (Bundle Monster Lotus Mat) using the following Barry M colours - Bright Red, Mango (orange), 322 Boots Limited Edition 2013 (yellow), 321 Superdrug Limited Edition 2013 (green), Cyan Blue and Bikini (purple).  Once the polish had dried I peeled it off the mat and cut out a triangle to create a decal.  I added a coat of Beauty Secrets Top Coat and applied the decal over the top.  I covered this with a coat of Seche Vite to merge all the layers together and seal everything.
