It also seems that the melon fruit really is our mellon, at least when it comes to nailart. It is always tempting to just add a little extra to a red or pink manicure to create that super tempting look of a sliced watermelon. So, I decided I shouldn't be worse than anyone else, and attempted one as an accent to my pedicure.
Here is what I used:
H&M Aquatini, OPI Dress to Empress, China Glaze Watermelon Rind (of course!), Essie Marshmallow, and a black creme, which happened to be a Color Club. (All set on my daughter's super cute denim blouse.)
And here is the result!
Aquatini for my eight toes that in my opinion are too small to paint arty, and my big toe got two coats of Dress to Empress, one french line of Essie Marshmallow, and on top of that another line of Watermelon Rind. I finished it all up by dotting little black seeds with a toothpick.
I know. It blows. I suck in the nailart department. But at least I tried, and you gotta give a girl a pat on the back for being brave enough to show you!
Swedish word of the day:
vattenmelon -noun watermelon
That one was hard, wasn't it?
