Salon quality nails without the salon quality small talk!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I’m terrible at nail art. I have no patience whatsoever when it comes to painting tiny details, and every time I try, I end up a mess of spilled polish and tears. For the most part if I want something special, I just go get my nails done by a pro.
After studying the pattern a few times, I realized I could probably recreate it on myself very easily. I gave it my best shot, and sure enough, it was pretty easy to execute!
Here are the steps:
For the tips, choose a green that complements your pink; I used Deborah Lippmann’s Flowers in Her Hair.
Using the brush that comes with the polish bottle, carefully paint a very thin french manicure-style line across the tip of each nail. I like to hold the brush vertically and carefully dab along the tips.
Using a dotting tool, carefully add a few black “seeds” to each nail. I like the balance of three seeds, but it’s up to you how many you add!
And that’s it! Wait until your art is absolutely dry before adding a protective top coat, and treat yourself to a watermelon mojito on a patio someplace.
