Watermelon Manicure!

I saw on a site this "watermelon" manicure and I was in love! I wanted to do one for myself so of course I went to Youtube. There were many versions and styles that you could do. I didn't follow any of them particularly step-by-step but used them as inspiration.

This is the manicure closest to mine because I didn't include the white part. I used China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy and Kiwi-Colada from their Poolside Collection (which I'm loving!), some old black nail polish and topped with the Seche Vite top coat (which made my manicure last a good week!).

Step 1: Apply the "pink" color (Flip Flop Fantasy for me) and let dry for a good few hours because you'll add tape to them.

Step 2: Add the French tip guide tape across your nail wherever you'd like to create the "green" part of the watermelon. I purchased a pack of 100 from Walmart for $3.

Step 3: Paint the green color on the top part of your nail, following the guide tape. Wait for it to dry before removing the tape.

Step 4: Add black dots, let dry and add top coat!

This manicure does require a lot of patience... but I loved the design! There are so many ways to re-create this look so have fun with it!

Do you like this manicure? Would you try it?
