Summer Nail Art: Fruity
You will need:
Base and top coat to protect your natural nail: I used Wet n Wild clear nail protector
Red, pink, lemon yellow, green, mustard, and orange for your base colors: mine were OPI's The Thrill of Brazil, Zoe&Zac Naturals in Petunia Pink, San San's Tropical Lemon (perfect!) Wet n Wild's Fast Dry in Sage in the City, Revlon's Nail Art Neon in Neon Lights and High Voltage
White, black, brown, and yellow for detailing: Wish in White, Allue in Black Night Out, Wet n Wild in Casting Call/Rose Sage, and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist in Monet Monet
Toothpick or striper
Cut, file, shape your nails and prep your cuticles for good nail health and hygiene.
Apply the base coat on all nails and let dry completely.
To make the watermelon, apply red and pink onto a sponge and lightly dab on your thumb to create a clean gradient.
Paint your pointer finger yellow. Leaving a small space near the moon of your fingernails, paint your middle finger's nail green. Do the same thing for your ring finger, but with the mustard polish. Cover the pinky with a bright orange.
For the watermelon details, stripe the tip of the nail with white, and when that's dried, stripe the edge with green.
Dot with black for the seeds.
Draw a curve running parallel to your cuticles with the white polish, then segment the lemon into wedges. Dot between the triangles with brown if you want your orange to have seeds!
Draw an oblong with the brown polish, then fill it with white to create the coconut's insides. You can draw a straw with yellow polish to replicate the refreshing drink.
Draw diagonal lines on the mustard nail with your brown polish, creating a pineapple mesh. Dot inside the spaces, and then top with green strokes for its leaves.
Do as you did with the lemon for the orange, but with yellow polish.
Seal with a top coat once your nails are dry to smoothen out any texture left by your sponge gradient.
Cool down with these juicy fruits this weekend!
