DIY Watermelon nails

Watermelon nails have been the most requested of all our designs, they are really cute and scream summertime. Here is the very requested DIY Watermelon Nails guide.

1. Apply a base coat of your favorite red or pink either will do , a fast drying polish is best as you are going to be applying more layers. *Tip: sometimes I do the base coat the night before* Once base is dry, section off the tip of your nail with a white nail art pen - these are really easy to use and help a lot if your not confidant doing a line freehand with a brush. If you have short nails, don't worry just make an imaginary tip approx 2mm from the end of the nail.

2. Using a green nail polish on a very small paint brush, the ones I use are from an art supplies store so it doesn't have to be a special. Fill in the tip sectioned off buy the white line. 

3. To create the seeds of the watermelon take a nail pen and carefully draw little strokes in a cute formation.

4. Wait at lease 30-40mins to dry and then apply your favorite topcoat.  Topcoat will glamorise even the dodgiest nail art. TRUST ME. Applying a topcoat is the equivalent of flattening an image in Photoshop it just makes everything look pretty and shiny.

TA-DA! How easy was that! Can you believe it?
