Let's start this yummy golden pineapple nail design!
As always apply a thin layer of base coat to protect your nails.
Once your base coat has dried polish all of your nails with a pink holographic polish, or if you want to be boring (or if you don't have a pink holo polish, which you need in your polish collection!), you can polish all of your nails with a bright pink creme color.
Once your bright pink holo polish has dried, we will be creating the outline for each of the pineapples, with white acrylic paint, this will help the pineapples to show up on your nails. On the thumb, middle, and pinky nail we will make a whole pineapple, then on the index, and ring finger nail we will make half of a pineapple.
For the whole pineapples,take a thin liner brush with white paint on it and make an oval shape half way up the nail, some of the nail tip should still be showing. Then for the half pineapples still make a oval shape that cover the tip of the nails.
Next we will create the leaves that are on top of the pineapples. With a thin detail brush make three curved lines coming from the tops of the pineapple, on each side, then make one line coming from the top. You can have seven or more, or less leaves on top of your pineapples.
Now let's make these pineapples colorful and golden. Take a clean liner brush dipped into a shimmery yellow polish (Sinful Color-Let's Meet) and fill in the the oval part. Once that has dried take a glittery yellow (Color Club Daisy Does It) and go over the shimmery yellow.
I ended up having to use two different types of yellow polish because the glitter yellow looked to sheer, but you can always use more of a opaque yellow first then put a glitter yellow over that.
On to the leaves, take a clean detail brush with a green polish on it and every other leaf fill in the white part of the leaves. Then take a lighter green and fill in the other leaves.
Back to the pineapple itself, we will be making a crisscross pattern on the pineapple. With a thin detail brush dipped into a peach/ tan colored polish, make a few slanted lines going up the pineapple, then going the other direction make lines that crisscross with the lines you just made. When you are finished the pineapples should look like their are small diamond shapes on them.
Once you have your pineapple design has dried apply a top coat to seal in and protect your nails from chipping.
As with any nail design you can always change it up. For this design you can always just have a pineapple on the ring finger nail, or have the pineapples on the thumb, middle and index, it is always up to you the on the way you want to do your nail art.
Hope you enjoyed this yummy golden pineapple nail design!
See you next time for more nail fun!
