DIY Watermelon Nails


  1. Polish your full nails with a pretty pink hue and let dry.
  2. Trace the edge of your nails (right above your cuticle) creating a thin line with the white polish  and let dry.
  3. Trace right over the white line, creating a thin layer with the green polish and let dry. Note: Allow a thin line of the white line to be visible.
  4. Use the black polish, add 3-5 black oval shapes to each finger nail and let dry. Keep in mind adding variety is best and keep the seeds closer to the bottom part of your nails.
  5. Add a clear coat and clean up the skin around your nails with nail polish remover.
