NOTD: Meiji Apollo Strawberry Chocolates-Inspired

Hey dearies!

It was time to change my nail polish again! I wanted to use some of my new Skin Food nail polishes I bought from Jeju. So while I was looking at my nail polish collection, I saw a chocolate brown polish and a pastel pink one and thought that this combination would be a nice cupcake-inspired nail art. So yeah, my initial design was a cupcake look for my nails.

 I applied my nail art at work (hopefully my boss won't see this LOL). During the middle of the application, I noticed that the design was familiar and it doesn't remind me of a cupcake but of a different sweet food...

With the help of my officemate, we realized that it looked like a Japanese chocolate candy!

Seeee!!! Almost the same color! Haha! I would go and try to make my nails more rectangular... but I won't. :P

Anyway, here are the products I used for the nail polish.

The design is pretty easy to do. I tried to document how I did this NOTD...

After I added my Palladio Moisture Surge Nail Repair, I applied one coat of the chocolate brown shade.

Then I added the pastel pink shade. I made sure I did three curves. As you can see, with one coat, you can still see the brown underneath so I applied more coats.

And voila! Here are my Meiji Apollo Strawberry Chocolate nails!

Excuse the messy application. I took the photos right after I finished applying them. :P

And that's my NOTD! What do you think of this?



  1. I hope you don't mind if I bite your nails! Hahaha. Too cute, I can't resist :)))))) it looks like a strawberry-chocolate fondue to me!

    1. Haha! Glad that they look delicious! Hahaha!

  2. kyaa <3 Apollo choco! I used to eat Apollo choco during my childhood days in Japan. I'm not really into nail art but maybe I should ask my sister to do Japanese sweets inspired nails. Ahh~ the nostalgia ~

    1. I'm jealous that you were able to live in Japan. I really want to visit that country (since I was in elementary mostly because of Anime back then) and learn about their arts and culture. <3
