The One With the Watermelon Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  I'm not going to lie, I'm quite exhausted.  So exhausted that I was almost not going to put this post up because I didn't want to edit the photos.  I'm so happy with my decision to just post a bottle shot because it makes my editting life so much easier.

Today I am sharing a cute watermelon manicure.  Last year a bunch of people were doing this sideways watermelon design and I wanted to re-create it, but I didn't have the vinyls which everyone was using.  Then for some reason this year I realized I could totally free-hand this design and couldn't figure out why I didn't realize that before.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Lime After Lime
  • China Glaze - Lip Smackin Good
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ILNP - Mega X
  • Acrylics
Isn't it adorable??  The other manicures I've seen with this design usually just have pink nails for the middle and index finger, but I decided to switch it up.  You know me, I can't have plain nails.  I tried to have a plain pink index finger, but it just didn't look right to me, so I added the dots.  Plus, I found the formula on Lip Smackin' Good to be kind of funky, so it didn't look right without something on it.  The formula on Lime After Lime though was amazing.  Two coats and pretty neon perfection. 

Now, how I created the look was I started off with a base coat of white polish.  When that was dried, I used Lip Smackin Good and Lime After Lime to fill in the different areas.  Kind of easier said than done with Lip Smackin' Good because again, the formula was kind of funky.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Something you would try?  Find the formula on Lip Smackin' Good to be weird??

 Until next time, <3.
