Natural Light – Direct Sunlight
I was torn between wanting to do watermelon nail art for Watermelon Day (we really do have a day for everything) and my regular alphabet nails post today. I don’t have a watermelon coloured polish beginning with P so I decided on a sour watermelon candy nail art look instead with Bourjois So Laque Glossy in Peach & Love.
This is one of the polishes that did not do well in the move and despite cleaning the lid twice, it still leaks. I may just have to give up on it. They clearly have looser caps as the other three polishes I have from Bourjois also leaked compared to just two from all of my other polishes.
Natural Light – Shade
Watermelon Nail Art – Polishes/Tools Used
- Bourjois So Laque Glossy in Peach and Love
- Essence The Gel in Wild White Ways
- Mundo de Unas in Forest
- Pueen Fairytale Lover 02 Plate
- Born Pretty clear jelly stamper
- Latex free makeup sponge
- Pro-FX Supreme Gel top coat
Starting with two coats of Peach and Love, add some white to the tips with a latex free makeup sponge with a gradient of two thirds Peach and Love and one third Wild White Ways. Add top coat and allow to dry fully before stamping.
Use the strawberry/watermelon stamp image from the Pueen plate making sure you wipe off any of the strawberry image that transfers to your stamp head. I used Mundo de Unas Forest to keep the paler look of a sour watermelon candy rather than a darker green. Top with a generous coat of top coat and clean up any edges/stamping polish on your skin.

Fun twist on a watermelon theme! Bummer about the polish leaking on ya though!
Aaaaw no, I’m sorry about the polish leak. 🙁 But your nail art is super cute and I really dig it. <3
I love the colours you used for this mani! Shame about the Bourjous polish though.
I love the creative spin on the watermelon.
Darling manicure. Sucks about the leaking polish.
this is a peaceful color palette.
Such a cute summery mani
This is SO SO CUTE!! I might need to recreate it!
Love that you didn’t go with “traditional” watermelon colors! This is cute!
These are adorable!
Boo for leaking caps, at least you had some left to use! Beautiful job with this theme!
