Color me Sweet: DIY Edible Nail Art

My sister, Primrose, and I are OBSESSED with painting our nails. I don’t know if it’s the addicting fumes or just how elegant our hands look, but we get together at least four times a week to have a mani/pedi sesh. The best part is Prim is an absolute master at nail art. I timed her once and she was able to accurately recreate the Birth of Venus on my thumb in two minutes and with only three colors.


Of course it seems only natural that Prim would come up with our BEST nail art idea yet: Edible Decorations.

You see, we were in the kitchen making cookies the other night, when Prim accidentally dipped her finger in the glue we were using to adhere sprinkles. When she went to wipe it off my cute klutz of a sister knocked the bowl of sprinkles all over herself! We laughed so hard we were literally crying and I definitely peed myself!


After we pulled ourselves together again, Primrose and I started to clean everything up- and that’s when we both noticed that the sprinkles had stuck to her glue covered finger. AND IT WAS SO ADORABLE.


Needless to say we stopped our cookie making at that very second and pulled out our large collection of MSG free nail polish.

The results were mouthwatering… and I mean literally! Sprinkles are the perfect addition to any nail because they are not only fashionable but great to eat as well! I found myself nibbling on my nails the whole next day.


Side note: Due to the toxins in the nail polish used to adhere the sprinkles, we actually have heard from readers that eating the sprinkles is poisonous and therefore we do not recommend it. 


Other side note: We are currently obsessed with Paris Street Style and definitely recommend it to all our readers. This is not sponsored, all opinions are our own.

    Is the MSG-free nail polish also organic, vegan, and gluten free? Where can I buy it?

      Arielle, I’m sure as a fellow vegan you recognize that even if the nail polish itself has been made without animal byproduct, the jar in which it is stored can often be made from melted down kittens. Sounds like you aren’t asking all the right questions…

        Carol, of course I’m aware of this fact. Even more frequent is the possibility of bees being caught in the glass recycling process since they’re attracted to the remaining drops of sweet drinks that were left in the bottle. Bees are incredibly important to our ecosystem and the farms that grow our organic, non-GMO produce, as I’m sure you know. Our vegan way of life would be threatened if the bees die off. That’s why I only buy products that come in containers made of recycled glass that held only spring sourced carbon filtered water, not juice or soda (plus, how do you know if that juice or soda had gluten in it and if our products in the recycled container are now coated in gluten!?). So, Carol, I was still asking the correct question, once I find the product I then look at it’s container material sourcing AND how it was transported to market. The mode and distance of transportation is equally important, as I’m sure you know, especially when you consider how many insects and bees die when they encounter a truck’s front windshield. That’s why I prefer products, when they are ones I can’t grow in my garden or make at home, to be transported by bike or foot. So you see Carol, I know what is important. I didn’t hear you considering any of these questions…

    LOVE this idea! It would be perfect for the candy themed party I have coming up! You know an outfit isn’t complete until your nails match the dress!

    Does all of this apply to my cat as well? I can’t paint my nails due to medical issues, but I could paint my cat’s nails and it would be ADORABLE! Plus Poof Would love to munch on some yummy candy throughout the day!

      Hi Debby, I say your cat definitely deserves a mani pedi- especially since there is no harm in using nail polish on felines! Hope Poof looks like a princess 😉

    I have a bad habit of biting my nails. Why have I never thought of this?? Such a good idea! I want to try it with rainbow sprinkles to support Orlando and show my pride.

    I recommend using Essie Long & Strong Basecoat. It makes nail polish stick way better. I’ve tried so many different base coat’s and this one is by far the best!
    Love the Sprinkles!

    Hey! I just want to say I tried this out for the first time last week.
    I used candied bacon bits instead of sprinkles and I have to say, I was VERY popular at the dog park! OBSESSED!
    Love this and the blog!

    My local stores don’t carry MSG free nail polish. That’s why I never paint my nails anymore. Back when I lived in Berkeley I could get any color MSG free *sigh*
