In staying within the genre of produce inspired pedicures, I ventured back to basics with a simply sweet little cherry print. It’s easy, it helps my toes be reminded that it’s spring, and somehow I like to think that Shirley Temple is looking down at my feet, and is proud.
So, here’s how you can have your own cherry print toes.
1: Paint toes with two coats of a light opaque color. I went with lime green. (So technically these are cherry lime toes.)
2: If you have a sheer glitter polish, paint that now. (Optional but a cool touch)
3: Put a blob of bright red polish on some plastic or cardboard, then dip a ballpoint pen in it, then lightly on your toe in sets of two. Now you have the cherries.
4: Put a blob of green polish on the plastic now, and using a toothpick paint a small green dash above all the sets of cherries. Now you have leaves.
5: Let dry, then using a fine point sharpie, or thin micron pen, draw 2 little diagonal lines connecting each cherry to the stem.
6: Cover with glossy topcoat.
7: Put on a spring time dress, and go to the farmers market…all while singing Good Ship Lollipop.

And I thought they looked pretty darn cute paired with these sandals.
