Watermelons are always a favorite tropical fruit to try during summer. Not only do they look scrumptious, they also smell and taste great! You only need to sponge on gradient colors of red, white and green to create a slice of the juicy fruit on your nails. Use a toothpick to draw black seeds on this delicious watermelon nail art!
If you’re a fan of nail gems, then use a crystal in place of black polish for the seeds on your watermelon nails! This is a more feminine version of the watermelon nail art. To achieve this look, apply a glittery topcoat over the red and white gradient shades. Paste on three glitters near the bottom of the nail to make it sparkle some more.
Get on the pineapple express with this super cute nail art! Instead of turning your entire nail into a pineapple, draw small versions of the fruit on a white base instead. You don’t have to worry about drawing the little cuties. All you’ll need is a thin striper and a steady hand to achieve the stamped result!
A scoop of ice cream would be incomplete without a juicy cherry on top. If you love these red delights like me, try painting them on your nails! The thin lines of the stem, as well as highlights of the drawing, can be achieved by using toothpick or if you’ve got the equipment, a thin striping brush.
One of my favorite fruits will have to be strawberries! Dip them in chocolate or cream and I’d be perfect for dessert. To achieve this delicious look, paint on some yellow “eyes” on a red base as well as a red leaf crown near your cuticles. Apply a clear topcoat to keep it shiny before adding a brown block (to represent the chocolate) on the edge of your nails. With the help of a toothpick, draw lines on the brown part to give it that dipped in chocolate look.
