Hello there gorgeous!
Slightly different NOTW this week - I have an actual tutorial! I've never done one of these before and I really enjoyed doing it.
As it's still kind of summer, I decided to do Watermelon Nails. I think they look really different although they work best on longer nails I think they could be adapted with shorter nails.
I used basic colours for this, red/green & a black nail art polish. A top coat also helps to make them shine.
step two | Paint the green tip (don't go over the white paper, go white paper to the end of the tip) I used 'NYC High Line Green' which was a favourite in 2012 - I hardly use it anymore! Then paint the next section red, be careful you don't go near the green..stick to the paper line. For the red colour, I used Rimmel 'Passion' which is an old nail polish, but a good one!
step three | When these nail colours have dried, add a top coat. I used my LA colours one but you can obviously use anyone that works best. Let this dry and add your black polka dots for the seeds. I used a black nail art pen, this works perfectly because it has a small 'nib' for detailing - don't use anything too thick and don't go to the top of the red colour. Remember, seeds of a watermelon are sparse at the base.
step four | When the black is dry, add another top coat. Make sure everything is dry so it doesn't smudge - you don't want the black to merge into the red.
When everything's dry, peel away the white label. You should be left with a really neat line separating the colours - if not, don't worry, use a cotton swab with some polish remover and gently go over the white line.
Will you be doing this tutorial?
Fan of nail art?
