Time for the second challenge mani of this week before it's too late, so here's my mani for the theme Fruitylicious. Befori this challenge even started I was sure I would do watermelon nails for this theme since it's basically my favorite fruit and I have never done those watermelon nails, so I finally wanted to try them. Then when this week came and I began to see that few other people had the same idea for this theme, I started to think that I should figure out something more original for this theme. But you know what, it's not necessary to have the most original ideas for each and every manicure; I wanted to do water melon nails and that's exactly what I did.
And I'm so very glad I did! This is so fun look on your nails and since I have been wanting to try this for so long, this theme was really the perfect opportunity. I love the summery look that these nails give, it even made the grey and gloomy wheather feel a bit more springlike!
I used Essie Sunday Funday as my base color, I painted two coats with it and topped it with a coat of quick drying top coat. When that was dry I painted my tips first with Essie Mojito Madness and then I did some lines with Essie The More The Merrier and the white line with Essie Blanc. Finally I added some seeds with a tiny nail art brush and Essie Licorice, so this was really fully an Essie manicure.
Like I said, I loved this look so much! It's certainly not anything original as there have been plenty of watermelon manicures out there, but it's still a fun look and perfect for the theme. These were actually the first ever fruity nails that I have done, I think I'm going to need to try some other looks in summer too, these fruity nails are really perfect look for summer.
