Watermelon Picnic | #MonthlyMani

June 16, 2015

It’s my favorite time of the month, it’s #MonthlyMani time – hurray!!  For June, the #MonthlyMani ladies and I have chosen the theme “Summer Picnic” and I could not be more excited!  I decided to go for something fun and, well, not too difficult, so I chose to create watermelon nails!

For my inspiration, I found this gorgeous manicure by Maria from So Nailicious – aren’t these nails fantastic?!  My own watermelon nail art is light years away, but I sure had fun anyway!  ;)

Sooo, are you craving watermelon yet, because I sure am!  Actually, aside from fruit, my favorite picnic snack is french bread and fancy meats and cheeses.  What’s your favorite picnic treat??  ;)
