Easy DIY Nail Art: Margarita Manicure

With Cinco de Mayo upon us, Kristi of the fabulous Polish in Oregon shares an Easy DIY Nail Art Tutorial with a geometric lime pattern that will have you reachin’ for the tequila!

1. Paint nail a nice happy lime green color. (Recommendations: OPI You’re So Outta Lime, China Glaze Lime After Lime)

2. Using white acrylic paint or white nail polish and a small brush, draw a thin line across the nail.

3. Draw a curved line connecting the straight line, be sure to leave some room at the top for the green tip.

4. Draw three lines to create the lime segments.

5. Add a small semi circle where the three segment lines connect.

6. Use a darker green nail polish, add a then line around the tip of the nail. (Recommendations: Essie On the Roadie, Revlon Posh)

Cover with top coat once the design has a few minutes to dry so you don’t smear it.

Add salt and tequila, and have a Happy Cinco De Mayo!
