you keep playing me like a fruit machine

Because I have too much time on my hands (see what I did there?).

I used to post more photos of my nails, but I started to get a little lazy and didn't feel like getting all creative in the nail art department. then yesterday, I was super inspired after seeing Erica's watermelon pedicure on fashion meets food and thought I'd attempt to re-create the look on my own fingernails and toes!
It actually wasn't as hard as i thought it would be! Just be patient and try to keep your hands as steady as possible. It also helps if you're a little ambidextrous, but if not, you can ask your friend to help paint your other hand for you. :)

here's a little tutorial to help you:

  1. Apply clear nail polish/base coat and let dry.
  2. Paint your nails with 2 coats of pink (or red!) nail polish. Let dry.
  3. Use green nail polish to paint a green stripe french-tip style across you nails.
  4. With the black detailing nail polish (i've seen these at forever 21 for cheap!), carefully dot on "seeds". It helps to practice this part on a piece of paper first, so you can determine how the seeds will look.
  5. Seal with a clear topcoat.
here are the polishes i used:
Rimmel Play Fast in "Camouflage", Goldie nail polish in pink, L.A. Colors Art Deco detail polish in black
