The One With the Watercolor Pineapple

9:00:00 AM

Happy Thursday polished world!!  Are you enjoying your week thus far?  I feel like it has been a blur, but to be honest I have been feeling not myself since Sunday.  I'm not sick, but I'm not 100% normal.  *Insert joke of when am I ever normal here.* Tomorrow is Friday which means that the weekend is almost here and before we know it we will be headed into the last week of January.  And I've done nearly not enough snowflake manicures for the year.  Maybe I'll get to another one in the next few days.

I haven't been feeling the snowflake nail art because we keep getting these weird little heat waves.  It goes from 19 degrees back up to 45.  No sooner than it drops about 6 inches of snow on the ground, it's melted the next day.  Listen, I'm never happy when it comes to the weather, but I would be a little happier if it stuck to being either cold or warm, not all over the place.  Since we are in another "heat wave" I decided to have a little fun on my nails and do a more summery look.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • Acrylics
Cute, right?  Nothing says summer like a little pineapple.  I saw a watercolor pineapple on Pinterest, and you all know me and my love of pineapples, it went on the re-create board right away.  The look was a lot simpler to create than I thought it would be.

First I started off with a coat of my favorite black and white polishes.  I rave about ORLY White Tips and Liquid Vinyl pretty much in every post.  They are my go to black and white because they last a long time, apply evenly, and have such perfect shiny finish.

When my white polish was dried, I went through with a black acrylic and painted the outline of the pineapple.  I then took different acrylics and watered them down so they pretty much were just stained watered.  I then took that and added each watered down color individually to the nail.  I let it sit for a few seconds and soaked up the excess water.  I went through and did this with each color.  Once I got the colors I wanted, I went through and cleaned up the outline.

What do you think? Love the pineapple?  I have to say, this probably is my favorite pineapple manicure to date.

Until next time, <3.
