Mother's Original Circus Animal Cookies Nail Art Tribute

 Like a true 90's kid , I dipped these cookies into Strawberry Nesquick Milk..
The was once a bakery called "Mother's Cookies" based in Oakland, California that was founded in the early 1900's. This bakery gave life to the "Original Circus Animal Cookies". This was one of my favorite cookies from childhood. These treats are distinguishable by their animal shapes encased in pink or white frosting with rainbow sprinkles on both sides of the cookie.

                    I thank my lucky stars that these cookies are still available today.

I paid tribute to these by eating a whole bag of cookies while I did my best nail impression of them.

First you will want to select as many colors as you can to complete the rainbow look. Here are all the colors I used below.

Polishes listed clockwise from bottom left: “Electrifyin’ Pink”-(Light pink color)OPI   
“Pink Fusion”-(Hot pink color)RK by Ruby Kisses-HD Nails 
“Nuclear Energy”-(Grape purple color)
 ”Purple Passion”-(Light purple color) by LA Colors
“Wonder Mint” (teal color)by Sinful Colors
"Lemonade”-(yellow color) by Kiss Gel Strong Nail Polish
Orange U Jealous”-(orange color) by RK by Ruby Kisses-HD Nails
“Sea Jewels”-(royal blue)by RK by Ruby Kisses-HD, 
"Ulta Ego" by OPI 
”Mint”(light green) by LA Colors.

I left a few nails in the polka dot pattern (made with a dotting tool) but I wanted to add in a fun element to the nails by creating a melting pattern. To create a "drip effect" I loaded my dotting tool with lots of my hot pink polish and painted a semi circle on the top of the nail as if I were doing a french manicure. Before the polish dried, I dragged the color down at certain points to make it appear that icing was melting from the cookie. I finished with a few rainbow sprinkle dots and the I put a top coat on the nails.


                                            Happy Friday and happy snacking to you all.
