Nerds Nail Art

I don’t typically enjoy candy, aside from chocolate, but Nerds is a whole different story! I love Nerds! I enjoy all flavors, but had only the strawberry and grape flavor, so I modeled my nails after them :)

Ready for picture overload?






I had to have someone take pictures of my right hand and both hands together for me. I’d like to be able to take more pictures of both hands, but hate asking for assistance from others. If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know!


For my pink base I used Revlon – Sweet Tart (what a perfect name for Wonka inspired nails!). On the pink I put random spots of a nameless pink mini Funky Fingers polish to create a Nerd pattern. For my purple base I used LA Colors – Tropical Breeze. On top of that, I used NYC – Lavender Cupcake for my purple Nerd pattern. To add more dimension, I used a white Stripe Rite striper to highlight the Nerds.

As for the Nerd characters, I used black acrylic paint to create an outline. I then filled in the black with either pink or purple polish (the base colors), still leaving a black outline. I made white dots to create the eyes, then separated the toes and such with a black Stripe Rite striper. I finally finished them by using either my nameless Funky Fingers polish, or Lavender Cupcake to add highlights (and a tongue to the pink Nerd).

I am extremely happy with these Nerds nails. I think this was a perfect 100th post (yes, this is my 100th post :) ). And you? What do you think?


  1. Oh my god! Those are absolutely adorable.

    1. Yeah, I think there was something telling me that you were eating Nerds, so I had to paint them on my nails just for you! haha, just kidding :) I must admit- that is some pretty perfect timing!

  3. OMG, your nails look exactly like the box design, they are so cool, love them! Great inspiration!
