Hello friends! While taking a little time off swatching, I have a quick and simple manicure to share with you today. It is a look that was inspired by a watermelon makeup I saw on pinterest. Here's the thing, things are so viral these days, especially for people who have gain recognition and their work have spread like wild fire around the net. As a result? The original poster or the one to credit got lost somewhere. And believe me tracking down the real artist sure is time consuming - but worth it. Without further ado, my nails today were inspired by a watermelon makeup done by the very talented Cristina Otero. She has many more beautiful makeups and they are all very inspirational!
Haha, it's not the best version I could do. But something really simple. I thought it looks quite unique. Actually they kinda reminded me of cheerleader uniforms. Hahaha! I'm a little sad that these didn't quite turn out how I've anticipated them to. Still on a learning curve.
Oh, I do have so many ideas and styles I want to try out. Can't wait to be done with swatching so I could go on experimenting with ideas and styles again! Perhaps I would sneak in a little in between, like this one. Hehe. Anyway, no fancy tools required to recreate this look. The base is two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Using the brush from the bottle, I used Chi Chi Bounce Him and striped diagonally across the nails. Adding black dots horizontally random motion using a toothpick for that finishing touch. Sealed design with a coat of Seche Vite.
Nail polishes and tools used:
- OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
- Holika Holika - Black Polish
- Chi Chi - Bounce Him
Though it was a rather quick post, I hope you've enjoyed the look here. I'm thinking of trying out more fruits inspired mani in times to come. They seem real fun to create. Hahaha!
