Pink Lemonade summer nail tutorial

Pink Lemonade always reminds me of Summer…a tall icey cold glass of pink lemonade, so refreshing! It inspired me to do a simple nail tutorial.

What you will need:

  1. ‘lemon’ coloured nail polish, I’ve used Rimmel London 60 Seconds nail colour in 450 Sunny Days
  2. Any pink nail polish, I’ve used Bourjois 10 days nail enamel in 26 (no longer available because it was a limited edition shade)
  3. Some Fimo fruit slices, I picked up a container of them for under $2 on Ebay (just search for ‘Fimo Fruit’)
  4. A clear top coat, I’ve used Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base and Top Coat
  5. Nail polish remover or remover wipes, I used Lacura Beauty Nail varnish remover pads (from Aldi)

First apply the yellow polish as a base. One coat only, as the pink is going over this. The top coat makes it three layers of polish. This is all you need, so you don’t end up with a gloopy mess on your nails!

On your ring finger (aka ‘accent nail’) stick on a slice of lemon from your Fimo fruit, then finish it off with a little more top coat.

Use your nail polish remover (or pads) to wipe off the pink polish on your top coat brush.
