So today I've decided to do a nail art tutorial and share it with you guys! They are the worst quality pictures ever, but that's because I took them with my phone. ;)
At first when I started painting them, I was going for more of a strawberry nail look, but then I realized they looked more like watermelons when I finished. ;P
Worst title picture ever. ;)
So first you choose your colours. The red in the picture below looks a bit orangish.
I would suggest using a bright red!
Cover your whole nail, minus the tips, with this colour. I only had to do one coating, but it depends what nail polish you use.
Then use a nail polish with a thinner brush. I think I used L.A Colours Art Deco in lime. And I just got it from the dollar tree. ;) So, next just colour the tips of your nails with this colour to kind of look like the rinds of the watermelon.
Then next, You use a Nail art pen to draw on the seeds. Make sure your nail polish is completely dry before this next step. I used Kiss nail artist fine art pen. I think this was a few dollars and I got it from Food City. Yeah, a weird place to buy nail art supplies. ;)
And here's the finished project!
I used a clear coating over my nails because the nail art pen rubs off super quickly. (Like within a few hours) But I painted my nails like 8 hours ago, and my nails are still looking perfect, so the clear coat has seemed to do its job! :)
Do you like them?
Would you like to see more nail art tutorials?
I've done my nails with pineapples on them before. ;P
