For some reason, when I did this nail art look  this week, the name “gifappeltjie” just jumped to mind..


The word “gifappeltjie” can be translated as “small poison apple”. This is the Afrikaans word for a plant (of the genus Solanum) which in English, is known by the names “Apple of Sodom”, “Devil’s Apple”, “Poison Apple” and a variety of others.


The little fruit is actually more yellow / orangey when ripe, than green (and in no ways teal… lol), but I just couldn’t get it out of my head, so Gifappeltjie Nails it is! 😉


I started with my clear base coat, and 2 coats of Yardley Quick dry – Aqua Marine.


I then used scotch tape to cover about a 1/3rd of my nails along the one side (except my ringfinger).


Followed by 2 coats of L.A. Girl color ADDICT nail colour – Urge on the uncovered parts of my nails (except my ringfinger).


I then used my essence dotting tool to make dots of different sizes on top of all the teal parts, including my ringfinger as an accent nail, using the L.A. Girl color ADDICT nail colour – Urge. 


This is a fun & easy nail art look to do! And I can see myself trying it with other colour combinations.. 😉

Let me know what you think? I love hearing from you!
