Craving a hint of something sweet? Try decking a single accent nail with an oversized fruit charm. To achieve maximum adhesion, opt for a clear gel, and make sure to apply it around the embellishment, especially in any corners or crevices.
An electric coral shade brings any yummy grapefruit to life. To create the look of the inside of a grapefruit, paint coral petal-like designs over a white base, then outline the nail with yellow polish.
Do you consider yourself a nail art newbie? A cutesy cherry print is one of the easiest designs to create. After applying your base color and allowing it to dry, use a dotting tool dipped in red polish to add medium-size circles to the nail, then use a striping brush and green polish to draw the stem. Once the cherries have dried, add a small hint of white polish to give the design a multi-dimensional look.
Evoke tropical vacation vibes with a playful pineapple print atop a holographic blue-green polish. To help your pineapples “pop” against the glitter-packed shade, use a detail brush and black polish to outline your design.
Want to give your kiwi creations a fresh, “wet-looking” finish? After painting your designs, apply small dots of clear gel to the nail, then cure.
