Freehand Drawn Watermelon Manicure

Some of you have noticed a ‘perfectionist’ vibe in my posts and I must admit that there probably is some truth to it. (although I personally haven't noticed it before) If I'm really passionate about something, chances are that I'm devoted to tightening any and every crannie and nook that I can find. That's an extra reason why I feel so happy about this particular manicure – I did it freehand, meaning that there are definitely imperfections. But I love it! And it has gathered so, so many compliments which is insane. My Freehand Watermelon Manicure was inspired by one of the prettiest nail polishes around – Essie Watermelon. I'm not the biggest fan of red nail polish and even when I do wear it, that orangey/red craze really doesn't fit my bill. I'm always leaning towards the cherry red spectrum and this indeed is the most beautiful pinky red (with just a dash of coral) I have ever seen. Formulation and longevity are also spot on. I cannot help it – every summer I fall in love with this nail polish, over and over again. For this design, though I only used a little to create the juicy, ‘fleshy’ watermelon part whilst China Glaze White On White served as a perfectly crisp white base. Now, this one is such a staple in my nail polish collection as is China Glaze Liquid Leather (shiny, thick and pigmented opaque black) which I have used to dot on tiny watermelon seeds. Catrice I'm Not A Greenager was used to stripe on the watermelon crust and I've also dashed some CG White On White on some places to mimic the paler stripes watermelon have on the outside. Now, I am well aware that this design is flawed and imperfect (I sometimes cannot even tell if I'm looking at tiny watermelons or strawberries, lol)  but I like it for being so free spirited and cartoonish. I did it all by using brushes which come with nail polishes so you don't need any nail art tools to recreate this mani – one of many reasons why I love it so much. Summery, relaxed and pretty – exactly what I want!


Neke od vas su primjetile nit perfekcionizma u mojim postovima i moram priznati da tu ima istine (iako to licno nisam ranije primjecivala). Ukoliko necemu zaista pristupam sa strascu, velika je sansa da cu se tome maksimalno posvetiti i vjerovatno cu cak uzivati u detaljisanju i ‘utezanju’ svakog, pa i najmanjeg detalja. Upravo iz tog razloga mi je neobicno drago sto sam zadovoljna ovim manikirom – iscrtala sam dizajn slobodnom rukom, sto automatski znaci da je nesavrsen (u nesto vecoj mjeri). I opet, uprkos tome – svidja mi se! Jos jedna neobicnost je da je upravo ovaj manikir izazvao odusevljenje i u ‘stvarnom zivotu’ te obilje komplimenata (naravno da mi je zbog toga drago). Moj Lubenica manikir u slobodnom, rucno isrctanom stilu je inspirisan jednim od meni najljepsih lakova za nokte – Essie Watermelon. Nisam neki izraziti ljubitelj crvenih lakova za nokte a kada ih nosim, onda odabir ipak nece biti crvena sa narandzastim podtonom (sto je trenutno jako popularno). Obicno naginjem ka tresnja-crvenim nijansama a ovaj Essie je uistinu jedna prekrasna pink/crvena (sa daskom koraljnog podtona). Essie Watermelon je posluzio za iscrtavanje socnog, ‘mesnatog’ dijela kriski lubenice dok sam koristila China Glaze White On White za bazu i njime nalakirala sve nokte. Zar nije divan primjerak cisto, kristalno bijelog laka za nokte? Radi se o laku kojeg uvijek moram imati u licnoj lakoholicarskoj kolekciji uz jos jednog divotana China Glaze Liquid Leather (radi se gustom i pigmentiranom crnom laku sjajnog finisha). Njega sam koristila za tackice koje predstavljaju sitne kospice lubenice. Catrice I'm Not A Greenager sam koristila da nanesem par linija koje simboliziraju koru lubenice a potom sam uzela jos malo CG White On White da iskopiram svjetlije sare koje vidjamo na kori. Svjesna sam da je sam dizajn manikira malo messy (nekada ni sama ne znam da li gledam u minijaturne kriske lubenice ili mini jagodice, lol) ali na neki luckast nacin mi se dopada prizvuk crtica i nonsalantnih linija. Nisam doduse koristila nikakav nail art pribor – samo cetkice koje inace dolaze uz koristene lakove za nokte. Dobra je stvar sto barem znate da vam nije potrebno nista dodatno da i same mozda pokusate napraviti slican dizajn – jedan od mnogih razloga zbog kojih volim ovaj manikir. U ljetnom fazonu, opusteno i slatko – upravo je ono sto sam u zeljela!
