Cupcake Nails

Hello everyone :)
I've taken a bit of a break from the April Showers Challenge this week as it's my last week of uni and I've been ill with viral gastroenteritis :( My son caught it last week and now everyone in our house has it. So last night I sat down and did some nails that would cheer me up... cupcakes! :)
Please excuse my awful cuticles!! They need some serious attention, what cuticle products would you all reccomend?
I used so many polishes for these nails but they turned out better than I expected them to :P
So here's a list of the base polishes I used on each finger:
Fore finger: China Glaze For Audrey (two coats)
Middle finger: Color Club Twiggie (three coats)
Ring finger: OPI Pink Friday (two coats)
Little finger: China Glaze For Audrey (two coats)
For the cake section of my nails I used two coats of Color Club Almost Famous, I then used two coats of OPI Alpine Snow to create the icing on the tip of my nails. I topped all this off with one coat of Lynderella Connect The Dots and H&M Berry love to create a cherry :)

Overall, I'm really pleased with how these turned out. I don't know what made me think to try this nail art out but I'm glad I did. I've had several compliments on them already. I'd love to try these nails again but using different glitter on the icing and using the same base colour on all the nails. They're so cute and fun!!

Do you like cupcake nails or are they too sweet for your taste? Let me know in the comments :)
Also, keep an eye out over the next few days for a review on SoFlaJo's polish - Fields Of Clover! :D
Thanks for reading,
