DIY Watermelon Nails

During the summer I love being able to do funky fruit accent nails. Recently I saw a picture on Pinterest of watermelon nails and decided I would give it a go. It's actually pretty easy but I got a lot of compliments on them! I think next I'm doing pineapples.
My apologies for the color difference in the pictures- the one above displays the color most correctly.

| You Will Need |

-Base coat (Orly's Rubberized Bonder)
-Top coat (Seche Vite)
-Pink/coral nail polish (Sally Hansen Coral Reef)
-Green nail polish (Essie First Timer)
-Black nail polish (China Glaze Smoke and Ashes)
-Toothpicks (plain wood, not colored!)
-Nail polish remover

| Steps |

  1. Clean all oil and polish off with some nail polish remover.
  2. Apply a coat of base coat and wait to dry.
  3. Apply two coats of a pinky color to all nails. ("step 1")
  4. Carefully using a green polish, apply a thin strip like a watermelon rind on your choice accent nail. Apply two coats if necessary. ("step 2")
  5. For the watermelon seeds, drop some black polish onto a note card and dip in the toothpick. Apply a dot where you want the bottom of the seed and gently drag upwards to create a rounded, pudgy teardrop. Repeat until you like the pattern. I used five seeds- three on the top and two on the bottom. ("step 3")
  6. Generously top coat, making sure to seal the tips so your watermelons last!

That's all! Easy peasy. Let me know if you try this out! You can tag me on Instagram @hannahvanhoozle. Also, I'm always posting pictures of my nails on Instagram as well!

  2. Great DIY! Matermelon is one of my favourite fruits and I find that anything that has like a 'cartoon' watermelon on it like a t-shirt is so cute haha. So I'm definitely gonna have to try this out on my nails before the summer ends as it looks so cute and summery! :)
