I only did the tomato pattern on the ring fingers of each hand. The design is simple and whimsical at the same time. I used a method that I see Leslie of Nail Polish Art Addiction use often, in which she paints with black first, then adds the color. That way you don't have to painstakingly outline each piece.
I got carried away while working on this nail and forgot to take pictures at each step, but you can see that one of the tomatoes does not have any red on it yet. I started with black shapes and built up from there.
Here's the base color without any tomatoes on it. I used Revlon 916 Chocolate Truffle. This is two coats topped with one coat of Seche Vite. The tomato designs were painted on using acrylic paints and a teeny tiny nail brush.
Thanks for checking this out, I will do better at getting step-by-step pictures on my next tutorial. I can't wait to pig out on tomatoes tomorrow. Have a great weekend!
