These were another attempt at using acrylic paint for my nail art. Honestly, I just wanted to see if the yellow acrylic paint was more opaque than yellow nail polish. It was a bit easier to use, but I’m not quite sold yet.
I used OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini as the base, and used acrylic paint for the lemons. I’ve been wanted to do some more fruit nail art for a while and finally got around to it. I did initially try to do actual lemons (rather than lemon slices), but I couldn’t get them to look right. Oh well.
We had a pretty serious heat wave in southern California a week or so ago (when I painted these), and, while I hate the heat, it had me craving some summery nails. I like how these turned out – they definitely put me in the mood for some more fruity nail art.
