Nail Art Sunday and #BusyGirlNails Watermelon

I’m combining once again Nail Art Sunday with #BusyGirlNails instagram challenge. That is possible because Nail Art Sunday’s theme this week is free to choose so I went with the theme that #BusyGirlNails has which is Watermelon. I’ve actually never done a water melon manicure before and I had so much fun doing it! I started with one coat of the beautiful green Wet ‘n Wild – Miami Spirit and did a ruffian with Essie – She’s Pampered. I painted then a thin line with OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls between the Miami Spirit and She’s Pampered and took a flat nail art brush with a little bit of nail polish remover to do a sort of gradient between the red and the white. For the rest of the nails and the upper part of the ruffian I used a fan brush and China Glaze – Grass is Lime Greener. I finally added some black seeds on top of the red surface :)

For more nail arts visit Nail Art Sunday at Lelack and to see this week’s of participants to #BusyGirlNails check the tag on instagram. The hosts for the instagram challenge are: @beautybyarielle, @fiercemakeupandnails@mirandasmakeup and @drinkcitra.

    Jag har sett många vattenmelonmanikyrer i sommar men aldrig denna kombination! Gillar hur du lyckats skapa något nytt av något som känns så etablerat redan :) Jättesnygg verkligen!
