BeautyManicure Monday: Citrus Nails with Syl and Sam!

Hey ladies, 
This week we wanted to continue along with the theme of summer inspired nail looks. We’re loving the tropical trends we’re seeing in the LuLu*s shop, especially the fruit prints! The Prada and Stella McCartney runways were full of these Carmen Miranda inspired prints last year & we’re still seeing the impact now!

Here’s the inspiration:
The gorgeous reflected citrus prints from Stella McCartney’s Spring 2011 collection…

& here’s what we’re going for:

What you’ll need:
- white for your base colour
- some “citrus colours”, we used an orange, lemon and lime
- a leaf green colour
- a striper brush

Start with a few coats of your base colour. Make sure that it’s completely dry before continuing.

Then take your orange colour and paint half circle shapes at the base of your nail. If you get some onto your cuticles, don’t worry! You can wipe it off with some nail polish remover and q-tips.

Do the same with some lemon yellow & some lime green. 

Layer the circles so that you have a bunch of fruits on each nail!

Once you have a few fruits, add some leaves by using your striper brush dipped into your green polish.

Try to make the fruits and leaves the same on both hands to replicate the mirrored print

Then take the striper brush and dip it in your white polish. We have a white nail polish that has a striper brush as the applicator, so we used that!

Outline each of the fruits with a white semi-circle outline and some bi-secting lines to make each circle look like a fruit cut in half.

Do the same to each of the fruits that you painted on and then top coat!

Make sure that both hands are mirror images of each other & you’ve got yourself some designer inspired tropical fruit nails :)
