looks like real chocolate! And… it smells like real chocolate! Guys, seriously! It smells

And now, back to voice over! Chocolate covered strawberries is one of my favorite treats.
They're so fun to make and super delicious to eat. What's one of your favorite treats?
Let me know in the comments. In today's video I'm going to be showing you how to paint these
sweet little treats on your nails! The drizzle will be 3D and they will smell like actual
chocolate. So, let's begin!
Start off by painting all of your nails with a base coat and then choose a strawberry red
polish to paint your nails with. Red polishes are almost always very opaque so you may be
able to get away with one coat for this design.
Next choose a bright green polish and use a toothpick to draw on some leaves coming
down from your cuticle. Don't think too much about it, just draw a few random triangles
coming down from your cuticle. Then use a stippling motion to fill the leaves. Make
sure the red underneath is fully dry or you will be bringing that colour up from the nail
and mixing it into the leaves.
Now it's time for a bright yellow polish. Use this to add random small dots over the
red for seeds. No need to worry if some dots are a little bigger than others--- it just
makes it look more natural.
It's time for the chocolate! Choose a chocolate brown polish and paint the tip of your nail
with it. The easiest way to do this is by keeping your brush still and slowly turning
your finger to cover the entire tip of the nail.
Give that a couple minutes to dry and then, if you really want the 3d effect to be prominent,
you will want to apply your top coat now. If not, you can do it after and the nails
will definitely dry faster, but the 3d effect will be lessened.
Now it's time for my favorite part--- the white chocolate drizzle. I'm using a special
polish by Color Club that smells like white chocolate when it's dry! If you don't have
this, you can always just opt for regular white polish.
To do the 3D drizzling, you will need to place a small puddle of white polish onto some tinfoil
and allow it to dry for about 15-20 minutes. We want it to become stringy. Keep checking
to see when it's done. It will look REALLY stringy like this when it's ready! Then just
use a toothpick to string the polish over the tip of your nail. I like to push all of
the polish from the puddle over to one side when it's ready to string, I find this really
And that's it! Just give it some time to dry and you will have a super cute mani that's
3D and smells like chocolate!
