My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 7 will start airing in mid-April! So I thought I’d do separate nail art for each of the mane six since before (here and here) I’ve done group nails. I decided to start with Applejack. This was time-consuming yet simple. I sponged a vertical gradient across my nails and threw nail decals I made on top, sometimes modifying the images to add apples. I think I made too many decals and this would have looked nicer with a few plainer nails. I’m also sad because I have zero stamping plates with obvious pie pieces. No apple pie for this mani. 🙁 Things were bought after this. I love pie a lot more than I love cake. The gap must be filled!
Also, trying to match Applejack’s main body color sucked. I have not a lot of orange polishes so I ended up mixing up a yellow and orange to get the color I wanted.

I started my nail art with Rarity on one hand and Applejack on the other and the background gradients made my rainbow nails for the 30 Days of Colour group. Check out what the other ladies painted on their nails:
I love It! Love the “cider” image with the apple- perfect for Apple Jack! And she definitely makes apple flavored cakes and cupcakes sometimes, so even though you couldn’t find a pie, it still works. I was going to suggest the Bundle Monster holiday collection on the round plates for some cute apple pies- I noticed they have that whole collection on sale for 0.59 each right now, but I already own it. But it seems like you already filled that hole in your collection!
Actually, I ended up buying a knockoff of that exact nail plate you mentioned (the knockoff’s image is bigger). And today a nail plate arrived that also had pie. O.O If only I started with a different pony!
I’m glad you loved it (esp the cider!). Are you a pony fan too?
I used to be more into it than I am now- I do still enjoy watching the episodes on Netflix with my kids. I used to enjoy watching YouTubers break down the episodes in full literary analysis and everything- it’s kind of fascinating the fan world that has been created around the series.
I don’t think I’ve ever watched an analysis of the episodes, but I watch them alone and with my step-kids. My favorite part is listening to the boy complain that it sucks because he knows it’s considered girly and then he gets sucked into watching it anyway and admits it’s good after all. Maybe Season 7 will suck you back in. They’re promising it will be the best yet. 😉
Love the colours you’ve used here ! Very pretty shades and lovely mani
Thanks so much! 🙂
