Want to get into the summer vibe with this cool design? Here's what you'll need:
Red or hot pink nail polish
Black nail polish
A white stripe polish
Dark green nail polish
Light green nail polish
Top/ Base Coat
Step 1: Put on a clear base coat to protect and strengthen your natural nails. Let dry.
Step 2: Put tape over the tip of your nails, however big you want the green skin to be. Put 1 or 2 coats of red or pink polish
Step 3: When the polish is completely dry, remove the tape. Put a coat or two of light green polish where the tape was. Let dry completely.
Step 4: Take a darker green nail polish and put small vertical lines over the light green.
Step 5: While waiting for the green to dry, take a toothpick and dip the tip into some black nail polish. Use that to create however many seeds you wish.
Step 6: Take a thin art white nail polish and put a fine white line at the right where the red and green meet.
Step 7: Let all nails dry for at least 15 minutes, and put a clear top coat on to make design last as long as possible. Then let dry for another 15-30 minutes. Hope you enjoyed :)
