Melon Mmmmm

Nothing oozes summer more to me than FRUIT manis hooray! Watermelon anything makes me smile. Flavor, design, smell it's just the ultimate warm season treat. I decided to do a new variation watermelon mani and it just so happened that was the theme for Polish-Aholic Anonymous Facebook Group this week. I started with three coats of Claire's scented holographic glitter polishes in what else, watermelon (a bright neon green). I did freehand "squiggle" rind stripes with Ulta3 Frog Prince, a nice kelly green cream.




I painted my index fingers and thumbs with one coat of I <3 My Nails in white. Waited until they dried, then used Orly's french tip guides. I painted Sinful's Boogie Nights on the top half of the guide. This is a gorgeous coral cream. Then two quick coats of Frog Prince on the bottom of the guide for the rind. Lastly I used my Born Pretty Store dotting tool to add seeds with Orly's Goth, a black with silver micro glitter. Topped it off w/Orly Sec N Dry and tada melon mania! What's your fave summer fruit, to paint, to eat? And a puppy pic for good measure, he's getting heavy...
