the sophisticated kiwi

in honor of the end of the summer season i wanted to do a design of something i enjoy doing in the summer and then i thought of fruit! many times i have seen fruity nails look rather well, fruity and childish so i opted to do something that may look like a fruit but also works as an everyday nail. 

tools: white, green and black nail polish, paper reinforcers, and a medium sized dotting tool. 

step1: paint two coats of white, essie-blanc.

step 2: paint one coat of seche vite fast dry coat and allow 10 minutes to completely dry.

step 3: apply a paper reinforcer to each of the nails (apply one hand at a time) and paint one generous coat of green nail polish, essie- navigate her. 

step 4: using a medium sized dotting tool, apply black dots in an oval shape on the green nail polish outlining the half moon shape. 

step 5: finish with one coat of seche vite fast dry top coat.
