How To Do Pineapple Nails
At first, use some base nail coat to protect the nail and make painting much easier. If you skip this step, your manicure will not last long enough and may fall off. So, we strongly advise you to do it.
Now take the yellow polish that you have selected and paint your nail with it. It is better to make it in two layers, so that the background will not fade. Make sure the whole nail is fully covered with the color.
Then grab your thin nail brush and paint these strips with the brown polish. Some patience and precision will help you do the thing. Do not make it too thick, as we will add another one soon.
Use a toothpick or a bobby pin for this step. Drawing these dots can make your pineapple look more natural and will surely diversify the whole picture.
To make summer pineapple nails more volumetric and realistic, paint strips again with your light yellow nail polish. Use a thin brush. It is ok if you cover brown strips, but be careful and do not use too much polish.
Now paint some leaves with the green polish to finish the picture. This time it is not bad if you use too much polish.
Cover your pineapple with a top coat. Now you are done with pineapple nail tutorial. Let us move on to the next one.
How To Do a Watermelon Nails Design
After painting the nail with a base coat, cover it twice with the crimson red nail polish. Also, you may use dark pink polish. Just do it as you like it.
Now, start the watermelon nail designs by drawing the crust of a berry with the green polish. It is better to perform it by placing your brush parallel with the growth of the nail, because this way the polish will not flow too far.
Drawing these wavy strips can help you imitate the pattern of a real watermelon. Do it only when the basic green strip has dried.
Draw a nice white line between green and red polishes. Then use your thin nail brush to paint some seeds, which will make these cute watermelon nail design look finished. Also, it would be good to practice in seeds painting on some piece of paper before you begin.
Cover the nail with a top coat and jump forward to the next tutorial.
How To Make Kiwi Nails Art
As we have done before, put a base nail coat on your nail, and then cover it with a double layer of light green polish.
Now use a lighter green polish (white color would also be fine) and a thin brush to draw this pattern. It is not as hard as it may seem. Just paint one ellipse in the center and complement it with strips, just as if you were drawing sun.
Use your toothpick or pin to make these dots with the black nail polish. It is better to draw bigger ones closer to the center. If you lack inspiration, use some kiwi photos for help.
Make sure that dots are smooth and round. Then cover your kiwi nail with a top coat to finish this kiwi nails tutorial.
How To Do Strawberry Nails Design
Put your base nail coat on the nail, and then cover it with the red polish twice. We advise you to use brighter color, comparing to the one you have used for the watermelon nail.
After the red polish has dried nicely, use a thin nail brush to draw seeds with the yellow one. The technique is quite similar to the one we used for watermelons.
Draw some leaves, using the green nail polish. Some rifle-green fits best for this. You would better pick some different color from the one we used on watermelon nails.
Cover the nail with a top coat to finish strawberry nails tutorial.
So, here are your cool summer nails. As you can see, the result is fabulous. Use some different combinations to find out how you like it more. If you want to, use a matte top coat. This might change the look of the entire manicure.
