Pastel colours are necessary this season. Like every summer, colours are a must. Make sure you have these pastel colours in your nail box. All you need is a pastel pink and green nail colour and a black nail polish for the watermelon seeds. You can achieve this look very easily.
2. Watermelons + Glitter = Perfect Combo
Watermelon and glitter look amazing together. Glitter sets the summer mood. When having watermelon nails, you can always mix and match with other colours and effects. You can see in this photo that the watermelon colours looks so good with pale pink/nude nail polish with a touch of glitter.
3. White Base + Pink Watermelons
It is all about the base with these nails. These are white based watermelon nails and we think they look divine. They do stand out more than the pink-based version. If you are good at art, you can maybe add the watermelons like the photo too!
4. Watermelon Toe Nail Design
In summer, people tend to have a lovely manicure, but forget about their toes! It is of course the season when our toes are out on show, so why not follow suit and paint your toenails with a watermelon vibe! These look so fun and we love how the big toe is all about the watermelon whilst the rest are a bright pink colour.
5. Cute Design for Short Nails
If you have short nails, have no fear, you can still have stunning watermelon nails. Take a look at these. Look how fantastic they look and they make shorter nails look longer. You may want to use nail tape on the cuticles so you get the best results.
6. Polka Dot & Watermelon Nails
Mini watermelons with polka dots! Mix it up by having a few watermelon nails and your others, polka dots. You will need a steady hand to draw on the mini watermelons. Stick to the white base for the watermelon nails and have a brighter colour base for the polka dot nails.
