Hi, This is the second day of the 31 Day Nail art Challenge and I am back with another nail art for the entry.Today's theme is Orange.  I have taken it very seriously and literally so I went ahead and made an Orange for the nail art :P. Although I do not like to eat orange as a fruit but this nail art makes me fall in love with the fruit to an extent.

The Fruity Orange Nail Art


  1. Paint your nails yellow as the base color.

  2. Make a semi circle of orange color on your nails.

  3. Draw a thin line from the middle of the orange boundary to the mid of the cuticle.

  4. Now draw leaves with green color either with the help of dotting tool or fine brush.

  5. Try and draw an outline to the leaves with a darker shade of green for precision look. You can either use the brush or nail art pen. I did use a nail art pen again lying around for some time but never used :(. Really this challenge is making me use many of my new unused nail art tools which I am loving. :P

  6. At last, draw the slightly curved shine line  with white.

  7. Finish with a top coat.
