The watermelon nail requires more patience than skill, and you only need to do it once. Paint a base pink nail color on all five of your nails and once it is 100% dry, add a stripe of green on the accent nail. Wait again for it to dry then use a thin stripe of opaque white nail polish to neatly join the two colors. Dots of black nail polish complete the watermelon effect.
