I've painted watermelons, bananas, strawberries and half a dozen fruity nail variations but I've never painted pineapple nails until now (can you believe it? what a slacker!)

I've not painted my nails for weeks as I've been busy DIY'ing but these babies were easier than I though.. I wish I'd tried them earlier.




you'll need to grab a few polishes. for the pineapple you'll need yellow, brown and green. you'll also need a base colour (I used white) and a nail art brush set.




paint your base colour and leave to dry.

take your yellow polish and using a fine brush paint on small circle shapes for the pineapple body. don't paint them too closely together as you want there to be some breathing room between the pattern- aim for maybe 3 per nail or it will look too busy.

then paint on the crisscross pattern onto the pineapple. I recommend a brown but if you don't have exact colours don't be afraid to mix up a few drops of polish to make your own shades for these small details (as long as it's darker than the yellow it should look fine.)

I was going to use the same brown shade to outline around the pineapple but I decided against it- I think it would over complicate the design!




grab your green polish and using the fine brush add your pineapple tops! a couple of small strokes for the leaves should be enough, then seal your nails with a good topcoat (I will never fail to recommend seche vite- a-mazing stuff.)




what do you guys think.. tempted by tropical fingers?

hope you like them!

back soon
