Citrus Overload

Well hello there! I'm so sad to see Summer starting to come to a close, it's my favorite season! I feel like I have to rush to get all these tropical/warm-weather manis, recipes and whatever else done. I think the image I use the most on plate m55 is the citrus one. Yet again, I thought it would be great to do a lemon-lime inspired mani. I used three coats of Finger Paints Psychedelic Sunshine. This is a neon jelly yellow holo. Formula, no me gusta. It was really thick and globby, even after adding a few drops of thinner. I accented my index fingers with two coats of China Glaze's green cream Starboard and stamped the citrus images with China Glaze Lemon Fizz.

Onto the recipe part ~ I've been dying to get the Babycakes mini cupcake maker and Bed Bath & Beyond had it in stock, and in PINK! Love this thing, it's too hot to have the oven on so this is a perfect solution. Plus I feel people eat more mini cupcakes than big ones because they don't feel as guilty. 

My first recipe was a cherry limeade cupcake, num num num...what do you want to accomplish before summer is over?


  1. Hi, Freshie!
    I have to say that I'm eating fruits when I saw this and I just needed to tell you! The mini cupcakes looks yummy! I don't know how to bake or prepare desserts like that so I really envy people who can. :)

  2. Nice rins! They are sooo easy! Just follow the recipe I linked to, really it was nothing. I appreciate the compliment though xoxo

  3. Love the mani. And, thanks, now I want a cupcake! They look delicious.

  4. I love this mani, it's so bright and nice! :)
