01 Watermelon Sugar Blush Nails

.


We have "Watermelon Sugar" by Harry Styles on repeat every summer, and this candied take on the blush version of watermelon nails captures those vibes perfectly. Creating this look is similar to the earlier blush nails, except for moving the neon green "rind" to the cuticle and using a slightly more muted shade of pink.


02 Watermelon Blush Nails

.


Remember blush nails, the K-beauty-inspired trend that skyrocketed to popularity over the winter? A watermelon color scheme is the perfect way to adapt this glowy radial ombré design for summer. Use blush or pink nail polish to create the base following these instructions, then pair with lime green French tips and a shiny top coat.


03 Fruit Basket Mani

.


If nothing brings you more joy in the summer than a fresh fruit salad, embrace those vibes on your nails with a design that takes inspiration from multiple warm-weather favorites. This mani pairs dragonfruit and watermelon nail designs with solid lime, fuchsia, and yellow shades, but feel free to adapt the look to feature your fruits of choice. 


04 Watermelon Gradient French

.


For this design, nail artist Dayanna I. Sapiens started with a pink base before dabbing on a half-pink, half-green layer with a sponge for a blurred ombré effect, then created a flipped version on the French tips with a green base. The result is mesmerizing and looks a lot more complex than it is.


05 Short Watermelon Blush

.


You don't have to have long nails to rock a dimensional watermelon manicure. This one proves that watermelon sugar blush nails are just as stunning in a shorter, ultra-glossy format, complete with lime green baby French tips.


06 Abstract Neon Watermelon

.


Love a good abstract mani? Try getting your design in watermelon coral and neon green for a vivid, summery effect. Negative space in the middle of each nail keeps the look from feeling too busy.


07 Watermelon Slices

.


For an extra sweet moment, pay tribute to the watermelon slices that many of us have enjoyed poolside or at summer barbecues. The translucent pink ombré resembles the fruit's natural coloring, while black dotted "seeds" and bright green cuticle "rinds" ensure there's no mistaking your mani's inspiration.


08 Watermelon Floral

.


Retro floral manicures spark joy in any color combo, and that includes this version with a neon green base and watermelon pink daisy designs. To make it even more watermelon, try swapping the red centers for black.


09 Peachy Watermelon Accents

.


Another take on watermelon nails that leans in a more candied direction, this peachy pink mani makes us think of juice, Jolly Ranchers, and all our favorite treats. The design reserves its watermelons for accent nails, swapping the traditionally green rind for white to create an understated monochrome moment that's still packed with summer fun.


10 Spicy Watermelon Chrome

.


Chrome nails often create a futuristic vibe, but on a bright coral base, they feel like the manicure equivalent to spicing up your watermelon with a bit of Tajín. Pair these with a full Barbiecore outfit for a fun summer moment.


11 Short Watermelon Accents

.


Barbiecore nails are still going strong, and these bright fuchsia nails definitely fit the bill. Vibrant, neon, and bold, with a slanted watermelon slice floating on the side for a nod to negative space nail design, we couldn't be more obsessed with this set.


12 Neon Baby French Watermelon

.


Short square nails are all the rage right now. And after looking at this set, we can see why. Practical yet still fun, this set is reminiscent of the aura nail trend, with a hot pink gradient emerging from the center.


13 Watermelon Picnic Spread

.


Is there anything cuter than this picnic-inspired set? We think not. It's going to the top of our spring nail ideas list thanks to the cottagecore gingham print, easy to DIY watermelon art, and itty bitty ant detailing.


14 Fruit Salad

.


If you're not so set on a specific fruit, a fruit salad mix and match is an adorable options. The simplistic design of these strawberries, kiwis, lemons, oranges, and watermelon slices makes the look extra sweet.


15 Glitter

.


In need of some vacation nail inspo? Shimmery watermelon art—paired with shadowed palm trees on a chunky glitter background—screams out-of-office vibes.


16 Red and Ripe

.


Red nails are absolutely timeless. And when paired with juicy, ripe-red watermelons, this look becomes even more appetizing. Design tip: Add a small white dot to each of the black seeds, as seen above, to give a three-dimensional look.


17 Classic Americana

.


This festive mismatched set is the ultimate Fourth of July nails. If the stars and stripes aren't quite your thing, consider solely painting on watermelons, gingham, and solids instead.


18 Pretty in Pink Melons

.


We love a nail trend mashup, and these hot pink Frenchies with watermelon art and stripes have us sold. Plus, that vibrant hot pink? Summer nail art goals.
