Watermelon Nail Art: Liquidus Nail Gloss Summer 2013 Trio!

Good morning, readers! I have a fun nail art look to share with you this morning to brighten your Monday morning blues! It's officially summer so what better to represent the hot summer months than watermelon nail art?

Liquidus Nail Gloss just released their trio of polishes that come together to make the easiest watermelon nail art! I'm confident that all of you could replicate this look on all of your nails, or accent nails as I've done below!

Don't forget, one of the best things about Liquidus Nail Gloss polishes is that they are all inspired by rocks, gems, and minerals!

Here is a little bit about each polish before I show you the look:

Pink Agate: Inspired by the pink translucent variation of agate, this polish is a hot pink jelly perfect for a summer jelly sandwith!

Emerald: Inspired by the rich green gemstone Emerald, this polish is a dark green jelly packed full of iridescent flecks.

Obsidian: Inspired by the glassy volcanic rock Obsidian, this polish is pure black glitter. Polish includes three shapes of shiny black glitter- diamonds, hexes, and squares in a clear glossy base.


I've done Emerald on my index finger, three coats with top coat. No issues to report, it applied easily and there was slight visible nail line at three coats but that was to be expected from the jelly formula. The flecks hid most of it for me.

My middle and ring fingers are the watermelon nail art. I painted two coats of Pink Agate on both nails and let dry. Then, I took my clean up brush and pure acetone and carefully wiped away the polish from the tips to make room for the green. (You can probably tape off the tips and then remove the tape after painting on the pink to make it easier). Then, I painted one coat (with some extra dabbing to get some more big diamond glitters) of Obsidian over the Pink Agate. Finally, I did two coats of Emerald on the bare nail tips to make the outside of the watermelon. Sealed with one coat of top coat.

My pinky is three coats of Pink Agate with top coat. This is such a fabulous color and jelly formula and I can't wait to use it in some jelly sandwiches!

  3. Wow, that is really neat for nail art! I have to ask, how did you do the watermelon nails? It doesn't look like you layered the pink over green or vice versa, or did you?
