July Jamboree Guest Post: Watermelon Toenails by Michelle of A Little Tipsy

Michelle here, from A Little Tipsy.
I am totally immersed in summer and have a fun little pedi to share with you today. I saw this on one of the teens at church and about died it was so cute. I had a 14 year old niece coming out to visit and knew this would be such a fun project for us. Introducing...

Watermelon Toenails

Don't they just scream summer?!

  • Coral, bright pink or red nail polish
  • Green nail polish
  • French manicure nail stickers
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Toothpick
  • Clear nail polish

1. Paint pink/red base coat. Allow to dry.

2. Tape off the tips with the french manicure stickers.

3. Paint tips green.

4. Remove tape strips. Either take them off when the paint is really fresh or after it has dried for a long time, otherwise it will make the edges furry.

5. Use a toothpick to add a black dot in the middle of your nail. Use the opposite tip to drag the dot to a point making a teardrop shape. Repeat putting three "seeds" on each toenail. I did not do seeds on my pinky toenails because they are tiny.

6. Cover with a clear coat to add shine and protection.

Put on some sandals and enjoy your cute watermelon toenails!

I have a lot more fun tutorials. Stop in any time! Thanks Tam for letting me visit!
