Nail Art || Watermelon Nails #4

Black - Revlon Nail Art Chalkboard "Study Date" (black end)

How To

This is probably the easiest way to do a watermelon nail look. It works great as an accent nail or as a full manicure. You will want a dotting tool, pencil, or toothpick.

Step 1: Apply a whitebase coat.

Step 2: Apply the pink coat. Leave a french-tip. Don't worry if it looks messy on the edge, we will be cleaning it up later.

Step 3: Apply the green tip, remembering to leave a white line (as thick or thin as you design).

This is where you can use the dotting tool to add white to clean up the edges of the green and pink layers.

Step 4: Add the black polka dots with your clean dotting tool.

Step 5: Optional Add lighter green straight lines with the dotting tool.

Don't forget a top coat!!!

This isn't my favorite look, but it is nice for working with the dotting tool and the different layers/color.
