watermelon nail art tutorial:7.18.2013
summer heatwaves call for fresh fruity fingers so I thought I'd share one of my favourite tutorials with you!
you may recognise this design from my collaboration with the awesome LA based company scratch.. it's been a dream come true having them made into nail wraps and seeing other people wearing them!
I though I'd revisit them again this week as the weather has been glorious and it's the perfect summer mani!
I've always used the two same colours for this nail art barry m bright pink and spring green, both having great formula's for the price! I'm a little hooked on barry m this month particularly the gelly range.. yum.
start off by painting the cuticle half of your nails green, fill in the remaining half with the bright pink!
use a white nail art pen or striping brush to draw a white band where the two colours meet!
once dry use a black nail art pen or dotting tool to add black dashes to suggest seeds, leave to dry and seal with a good clear topcoat!
if you don't have the time or patience to try this yourself you can head over to scratch and check out my watermelon wraps before they sell out! they have some incredible upcoming featured artists and have just launched possibly the greatest concept EVER.. a monthly mani box!
