*Feel upbeat (despite the heat!) with a bright accent nail that’s so *whimsical and flattering, you can’t help but smile!
_Inspired by a sweet slice of watermelon, this fresh mani screams summer-chic. Plus the accent nail “breaks up” the horizontal row of color across the nails and pulls the eye lengthwise for a finger-elongating effect. _Follow these simple steps to get the look:
*Step 1: *Sweep on 2 coats of hot-pink nail polish (like Essie in Watermelon, $8, at Target.com) and let dry. Then, to create the “rind,” swipe lime-green polish across the tip of one nail using a stencil brush (like Kiss Nail Artist Paint & Stencil Kit in Beach Green, $3, at drugstore.com)
Step 2: Dip the tip of a toothpick into a black polish (like Nicole by OPI in Totally in the Dark, $8, at Ulta.com) and dot five or six small “seeds” haphazardly under the green tip. If you don’t have black polish on hand, you can get the same effect with a thin black felt-tip pen. When dry, finish by applying a clear top coat (like Sally Hansen 30-Second Top Coat, $5, at drugstore.com) to seal the design and prolong the look.
