belated 'Fat Tuesday' cupcakes!

Hey guys!
so after my disastrous checkerboard mani yesterday,
I attempted the other idea I had for madi gras/fat Tuesday-

I personally don't really like cupcakes, but I feel like they were more than appropriate for fat Tuesday & I always wanted to try to some more nail art.
I got the idea from here, so it's by no means my own idea.

Unfortunately, I took these pics prior to clean up, but I learned my lesson from I quickly took them as soon as I finished.

* indoor lighting, no flash

* fluorescent lighting, with flash

* fluorescent lighting, no flash

So i know this is super sloppy compared to the rest of you nail gurus,
but i AM still a noob, & you've got to start somewhere :p
I actually really liked them,
though of course there are a ton of things I could and need to improve upon.

Polishes I used:
Zoya's 'Robyn' for cupcake base
Konad special nail polish in white for icing
Zoya 'Gaia' over the Konad 
China Glaze's 'Ruby Pumps' for cherries
CG's 'Re-Fresh Mint', CG's 'Strawberry Fields', 'Robyn', & Zoya's 'Pippa' for sprinkles

But there you have it
Second ever attempt at nail art :)

What do ya'll think?!
