Watermelon Nail Art Tutorial

Easy Watermelon Nail Art Tutorial
My Watermelon nails received a very warm reception when I posted them a few days back so I’m back with a tutorial for the look. I’ve seen so many takes on watermelon nails which is what inspired me to do some of my own and I think I put enough of a twist on it to make it something a bit new. The 3/4 border is a cute and simple trick that I really love and find myself going back to time and again. It works on every nail shape but I have to admit that I think it looks extra spectacular on square nails but I’m probably biased on that front. Digital high five to all my square sisters out there!

The Steps

Step 1: Paint on your pink base polish and wait for it to dry

Step 2: Using a nail art brush with the green polish, paint a border around your nail but leave the tip
Step 3: Line between the two colours using a liner polish or white polish on a nail art brush
Step 4: Dip the very end of your nail art brush in to the black acrylic paint and simply press down once to create each seed
Step 5: Add your top coat and clean up around the edges using pure acetone on a clean-up brush.
