Watermelons

Hello all! This week I'm posting a tutorial for a very summer-inspired design that will teach you how to decorate your nails with mouth-watering watermelon slices. Enjoy!

You will need:
- Base coat
- Red polish
- dark green polish
- black polish
- dotting tool
- light green polish
- top coat

As usual, paint your nails with your favorite base coat. Next, use the red polish to cover your nails with two solid coats.

OPI - Cajun Shrimp

Next, paint the tips of your nails with the darker green polish. You can do this freehand or use tape.

Essie - Mojito Madness

Use the black polish and a dotting tool to draw on the watermelon seeds. This can also be done with a black striper.

Sally Hansen - Black Heart

Using the edge of a makeup sponge, dab on the light green nail polish onto the tips of the nails in stripes (like in the picture). This is a subtle step that really adds to the design.

Essie - Navigate Her

And there you have it! Cover with a top coat to protect your design.
