Watermelon nails are the refreshingly fruity mani you need to try before summer ends

It’s National Watermelon Day (August 3rd), which means it’s time to start planning how you’ll be celebrating the summer snack staple. Our suggestion? Slice up a cold, juicy melon and get your nail kit out for a little DIY session. Watermelon nails are the brightest, cutest, and—believe it or not—easiest way to summer-ify your manicure.

Whether you opt for an over-the-top, all-over look, or more low-key nail art with an accent nail or two, there’s a watermelon nail art look to suit your style. Paint your melon slices on bare nails for a chic, modern, negative space mani, or on top of hot pink nail polish to make more of a bold statement.

No matter what aesthetic you’re going for, we know you’ll find watermelon nails that catch your eye. Browse our faves on Instagram below.
