Introduction: Watermelon Nail Art

A fun, fresh, and easy summer manicure!

Step 1: Painting Your Base

1. Paint a base coat in a dark pink shade. (The great thing about this manicure is you can really use any polish color in the pink-red family!)

2. Layer your glitter polish.

Step 2: The French Tip

3. Using dark green polish, line the tips of your nail.

4. Using a white Migi nail art pen (or whatever you have), create a second, thinner line.

Step 3: The Seedlings

5. Using a black Migi nail art pen (or whatever you have), create the seeds by making a teardrop shape. I did this by first making a dot, and then continuing my dot outwards a little bit.
6. Finish up by cleaning up the cuticle and topping it off with clear coat.
