Pineapple Paradise

Pineapple Paradise

Summer calls for a tropical paradise.  My mom is from Maui, so growing up, every summer we would go to Hawaii to visit my grandma.  We'd eat fresh pineapple, shave ice, and Maui hotdogs.  I didn't go to Maui this summer, so I painted a pineapple inspired mani instead.  It's definitely not the same as actually going to Hawaii, but the summery feel still brings a smile to my face. #nailart

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Nail Color - Seanic
  • Ulta - Sun-Sational
  • Wet N Wild Wild Shine Nail Color - Sunny Side Up
  • Other polish - teal, green, and dark green
Other Supplies:
  • Nail tape
  • Nail brush
  • Base and top coats

If you want to cut down on the amount of coats of glitter polish you need, you can paint a similar teal color under it first.  That's what I did.  But if you don't have one, just layer on the glitter polish and you'll be fine.  Here's how to create this look:
  1. Apple the base colors.  Paint the ring finger yellow and the rest using Seanic by Sally Hansen.  The glittery teal color reminds me of the ocean and is very tropical. 
  2. Paint the pineapple.  Using yellow polish and a nail brush, paint an oval to represent the pineapple.  Then, use orange polish to paint shading and the crisscross design of the pineapple.  Use a lighter green polish to paint the stem coming out of the pineapple.  Then, paint a few shadow lines with a darker green.
  3. On the yellow nail, paint a yellow and orange gradient using a make-up sponge.  Once dry, apply nail tape in a crisscross pattern.  I chose a crisscross pattern to match the pattern on a pineapple.  Then coat with a teal polish and Seanic and remove the tape.
