There’s no better way to celebrate summer than with a big ol’ slice of melon. I could eat watermelon all day until the seeds I’ve ingested begin to sprout and take over my body and this blog. But really, the best thing about summer is to make use of your brights. Don’t be afraid to mix and match summer hues, and update the classic French manicure.
To create a watermelon design, choose a medium pink for the base, like Essie Secret Story. Once the base colour is completely dry, place on French manicure strips and paint your tip colour on. For best results, with the most straight edges, I find it best to remove the strips immediately after applying the polish. I alternated using Zoya Arizona and Wednesday (used for watermelon rind).
Create the watermelon seeds using a toothpick dipped in black polish — alternate the size of the dots by blotting the toothpick on a piece of paper.
Pink nail polish is something that I can never have enough of. Unfortunately my love for shades of pink has meant my collection is seeing doubles, as I’ll often buy an amazing new rosy hue that perfectly resembles last year’s favourite.This week I decided to put all my pinks to use, mostly so none of them felt left out, and try an ombré manicure from pale to barbie to neon.
Today’s lineup: OPI in Pink Friday, OPI in Chapel of Love, NYC in Pink Pomegranate, Essie in Secret Story, Crush (from Boathouse) in Pink.
