Today is watermelon day in the OMD3 challenge. But watermelons are boring (aka I’ve done them twice in the past) so I decided to mix it up and do strange sliced watermelon bits using striping tape! Because striping tape is currently my favorite.
I started with a green gradient, and then went ahead with the striping tape and pink polish. The fun part here (well, it was all rather fun, I liked this mani) was adding the caviar beads as watermelon seeds! I always love having subtly 3D nails to play with…especially when they are easy to remove. And caviar beads are really simple to just pop off when its time to switch manis!

~ Pink: Essie – Sunday Funday
So, new take on watermelon manicure. Thoughts? I don’t know that it is recognizably ‘watermelon inspired’ rather than just some cool geometric pattern with pink and green.
The seeds make this mani, and if you want to get some seeds (along with their gold and silver friends, and some larger studs) you can pick them up at the Born Pretty Store for $3.26. I am really glad to have a neutral set for caviar beads! Don’t forget to enter LY5X31 at checkout for a 10% discount!
