Hi Girls, How are you doing? I am posting more than my normal frequency these days because I am participating in OMD3 challenge. I am doing more, succeeding more, failing more and enjoying more tooJ. I did this Watermelon Nail art for Day 11.
I spent quite a lot of time in planning this mani in my head. Initially I thought I will only make the edible fruit part of Watermelon. I have seen a lot of black seeds in red background manis for watermelon with green ruffian type pattern to begin with. But I was so bored at looking at them, that I decided to change my plan. I wanted to do a Watermelon skin now. And I was very particular of this part, the skin should look real.
I took all my stamping plates and browsed each one of them to figure out any image which would be near to wavy kind of pattern for doing those stripes which are there on Watermelon skin.After being buried under all my plates, I found Winstonia Generation II, Plate no 202. It had similar wavy random vertical stripes. I tried various other wavy patterns of similar nature on my practice wheel but this came out the best.
Also, I was very particular about the color of the skin, it has to be exact Green. When I was almost convinced that I don’t have that exact Watermelon Skin Green and that I would have to buy one to do a successful WaterMelon Skin, I saw Sinful Colors ‘Calypso’ lying there. Just the kind of green I wanted and then everything fell in to place. I then stamped the Winstonia plate 202 along with freehand touches for desired effect.
I used Models Own Polish For Tans- Sunhat and freehand drawing for seeds. If you are thinking that the watermelon fruit part should have been red instead of pink, please note this is a watermelon created by me and I would love a pink watermelon more than red. LOL. Jokes apart, for an artist any thing that you can imagine and conceive in mind is reality. So we should not be afraid to bring it on nails. If you think it, you can draw it! There lies the power of an artist.What do you guys say?
