Gingerbread Nails

So, as I don't have the baking expertise, or the patience to build a real gingerbread house, I decided to create a gingerbread mani instead.

Mushrooms aren't usually part of a gingerbread recipe, but Barry M's was crucial to mine as this is what I used as the base colour. The smarties were also from Barry M - Strawberry Ice Cream, Lemon Ice Cream, Mint Green and Blueberry Ice Cream. 

The detail was done with a Models Own nail art pen. I haven't used one for a while but it was perfect for such a detailed design. You can get much thinner lines and tinier dots, but my hands did start shaking towards the end!

Now I'm seriously craving some gingerbread, so if anyone fancies making us some please feel free!!



  1. These are so cute! I can't believe you did all of this with a nail art pen! :)

    1. Thanks Jayna, they took a lot of patience! xx

  2. Those are so cute, I love it. Unfortunately, I don't have any patience when it comes to nails.

    1. Thanks Dom! Jo is far more patient than I am - I use Seche Vite after painting my base coat so that I can get to the drawing stage quicker. E.x
