Smart cookies at a party

Hi there guys. I hope you're feeling ok and good, sometimes ok is ok for me. I wanted to do some food nail art (my favourite) and I decided on some cookies. The outcome was different than expected, in good and bad ways. Smart cookies remind me of last year when my friend drew a dinosaur in my homework diary, which led me to draw a dinosaur in my other friend's homework diary. Our dinosaurs were bezzies and my dinosaur was a dumb apple and her dinosaur was a smart cookie :') I don't know if this makes me cool or not (we'll pretend I'm cool).

I used Algae Veronica's "graffiti" design as part of my design, I personally don't think it looks like graffiti but I think it looks awesome. I really like her style, it's so bright and bold!! Anyway this is the "at the party" element, I added some glitter BOOM those smart cookies are at a party! I originally thought it was like explosions in the background but my friend said it looked like they were at a party and I was like "Oh yeah...".
My cookies aren't as cute as I wanted them, it's actually just the middle finger cookie I don't like. Otherwise they're quite cute. You don't tend to find smart cookies at parties :P

I didn't want to risk smudging the design with topcoat but I felt the design needed smoothing out. I now realise my issues with topcoat. Everyone said "Take your time with applying topcoat" and I was like "Haha lol let's just not listen and go lighting fast with topcoat and smudge everything". Ok it wasn't all me but it was mostly me, I do blame topcoat too though. I always thought "Get topcoat over with quickly and it has less opportunity to mess up". Wrong. But I took my time and smudging is significantly better, ok there's still a bit but not bad at all. Lesson for today: Apply topcoat slowly, it's worth it.

Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!!!


  1. Hmm... we share the same mentality, I guess? I'm still doing it as fast as I could, since seche vite tends to dry pretty fast. But I will give slow-mo a try, hopefully it'd work for me too.

    Yeap, that sure do look like Partayyy on your nails!!! Love it! I'm very sure I could hear party music just by looking at your nails! :D

    1. I've always been of that mentality, I'm really hoping the slow application of topcoat works consistently. Awwww thank you, that's so nice of you!!! :D
