For our second collaboration with N.P.A.A, we’re gearing up for summer with some tutti-frutti nails.
While the weather may be a little less than picture perfect in Sydney this week, we say get some of these on your nails and it’ll be sunshine and strawberries (or pineapples) wherever you go…
Check the how-to below and don’t forget to follow the N.P.A.A girls HERE

SUPER COOL STRAWBERRIES!
Step One: Buff and shape your nails into a rounded shape, and apply your 2 coats of your base colour, we used OPI’s OPI on Collins Ave. Allow to completely dry before going onto step 2 to avoid smudging.
Step Two: The green stem of your strawberry – using a fine art paint brush from the craft store for the green stem we used OPI’s Go on Green. Starting at the tip of the very center of the nail paint the tip leaving a 2mm gap on either side of the edges of the nail. Then very carefully paint 3 mm pointed leaves, just take your time using the smallest strokes till it looks even.
Step Three: Using a Sally Hansen nail art pen in black, paint evenly spaced little oval pips all over the base colour of your nail and allow to completely dry before applying a topcoat!
PEACE OUT PINEAPPLES
Step One: Buff and shape your nails into a rounded shape, and apply 2 coats of your white base colour (we used OPI’s Alpine snow). Allow to completely dry before going onto step 2 to avoid smudging.
Step Two: The pineapple leaves – using a fine art paint brush from the craft store and OPI’s Go On Green paint start with the middle leaf, and from where you want your pineapple base to start. Paint on your leaves using very small strokes.
Step Three: The pineapple body – using your fine art paint brush OPI’s The ‘IT’ colour, start at the tip leaving a 3mm gap around the edge of the nail. Paint upwards to form one side of the pineapple, then copy from the other side. This is way easier than trying to paint the full curved line at once. Then fill in the middle.
Step Four: Glitter up your pineapple- why not! Glitter is our favorite type of polish ever! We used OPI’s Glitzerland and applied it just to the yellow of the pineapple body.
Allow to completely dry before applying your top coat.
