Here I am again with another post for the Lazy Days of Summer Challenge. There weren't as many usuable pictures for this one, so here it is... my favorite fruit! I was really pondering which is my favorite fruit. I don't eat fruits just as they are very often, but I use them for cakes, smoothies, ice cream... you name it. And I just love kiwi fruits are a base for my morning smoothie. So this mani is kiwi-themed!
I used OPI Greenwich Village as my green base, though I diluted it with clear polish to make it more of a green jelly. My greens are all not very kiwi-colored, but this came closest. I did three coats of my green jelly, let that dry and then grabbed my white acrylics.
I painted an oval shape in the center of the nails and then, using a striper brush, drew the short stripes. A dotting tool and some black polish (p2 eternal) for the dots. I covered my stripes a little bit too much, so I added a couple more white stripes afterwards.
I was really surprised that I barely have any "middle" greens in my stash. I have a lot of dark and tealish greens though. What fruit has that color... watermelons maybe?
So today is supposed to be the hottest day of the German summer. I'll try to hide in my house, but it's sooooo warm in here already. I'm so weak when it comes to heat...
