How better to enjoy your summer days then with some fresh fruit...on your nails! I've done fruity nails in the past but this by far is my best one! I painted on five different fruit for each of my hands with my handy acrylic paint. I included a watermelon, a strawberry, a kiwi, and apple, and a dragon fruit. Boy do these make me hungry!

This week i returned to the much loved and hated technique of water marbling. I just have to find the right watery nail polish consistency in order to be able to correctly and easily water marble my nails. This time around I used a yellow, green, and blue to create this very sea foam type of look. After I dunked my nails into the water with the spiral design, I added some sparkle near my cuticles and one single yellow dot. (for the heck of it) These manicures are always a blast to do and usually create some really spectacular designs.

One of my good friends has a phone case featuring all of these adorable red lips and told me to use it as inspiration for my next manicure. This is what I ended up creating with his inspiration. I painted a white french tip first and then very carefully I painted all ten of these lips with red, black, and white acrylic paint. Thankfully my nails are long enough that I had a big enough canvas on my free edge to create these (lowkey creepy) lips.
My previous manicure started to chip (EKK) midway through the week so I had to remove it and do my nails for Thursday and Friday. I just need something simple to get me to the end of the week so I decided to paint my nails 5 different shades of red and add some rhinestones to my ring finger to bling things up. Simple and easy!

I found these really awesome Pride nail stickers at Target this weekend and thought to incorporate them into my manicure this week. (even thought the last time I used nail stickers on myself was like four years ago) I started out with a white base color and then created a gradient from neon yellow to a pastel yellow to a subtle peachy-pink. Afterwards I stuck on some stickers from the pack and then to make everything look uniform I added three rose dots at the tip of the nail sticker. This manicure is definitely unusual and I'm really digging the odd combination of colors for the gradient.
