Sweet Summer Strawberries with Gelaze Strawberry Fields

Hello Loves!  I have a sweet, summery manicure to show you today.  Strawberries!  This manicure speaks to me for many reasons, but mostly because it reminds me of my sweet Grandmother.  She absolutely loved strawberries.  Her entire kitchen was decorated with them.  :)  I used her kitchen (as I remember it) as my inspiration for this design.

The base for this manicure is Gelaze Strawberry Fields with an accent nail of Gelaze White on White (swatched and reviewed here).  Strawberry Fields is a beautiful, shimmer packed red with slightly pink tones.  The jelly finish causes this on to shrink back a bit, so I did have to flash cure the first layer.  The second and third applied nicely, though.

I then freehanded the strawberry shapes with Strawberry Fields on the White on White accent nail and added leave and stem details with Mundo de Unas green.  I mixed a small dot of Mundo de Unas black with the green for the detail on the leaves.  I then finished off the other nails with dots of Gelaze White on White.  The end result feels a little retro, no?

I'm off to enjoy wearing my strawberries and thinking of Grandma this week.  Be sure to check back on Friday...I'm working on editing swatches of the Bundle Monster Gel Polish Awakening Collection - more thermals!

  1. Wow, I really wish they hadn't called that polish Strawberry Fields. That's not even close to the regular polish version of Strawberry Fields. That's confusing. :(

    1. I hadn't looked up the original until now, but you're right. The polish version is pink whereas this is definitely red.

  2. Such a darling mani! I love your strawberries! And those precise dots, wonderful! The base is beautiful, with that subtle sparkle.

  3. That red!!! LOVE. Your strawberries are perfect too. I am a sucker for dots so huge thumbs up from me.
