Watermelon Nail Tutorial

(I used Kiss Nail Art Paints for the details)

It seems as though lately, I’ve been having a bit of a fruit obsession. From my strawberry nail tutorial to my new watermelon dress and watermelon clutch, I’ve got a bit of a theme going – so I figured I would top it off with another nail tutorial. It all started when I got a manicure, with my niece. Less than 24 hours later, the tips were already starting to chip, so I decided to give them a little makeover and make them into watermelons. Here’s how to do it:

1) Start with red nails.

2) Paint the tips white.

3) Paint a skinnier stripe of green at the very tips.

4) Use black polish to paint the seeds. That’s it!

It doesn’t have to be perfect (clearly, mine aren’t) but if you’re a perfectionist or don’t have a very steady hand, try using these french manicure guides for the green and white tips, and a nail dotting tool for the seeds. Have fun!
