Hello my tropical warriors, Spring is still sprunging (is that even a word?) and this Pineapple Nail Art Tutorial was the first thing that came to mind. Its fresh, fun and fruity enough to make anyone smile. Do you know what else comes to mind? Freebies, because who doesn’t like free things? keep reading for a nifty freebie at the end of this post.
If you’re familiar with House Adon, you’ll know I’m kind of obsessed with pineapples, balloons and freebies. (Don’t ask, maybe it’s an opposites attract thing) So naturally, I wanted to share this pineapple nail art tutorial with you. While making this tutorial I had that catchy Pina Colada song stuck in my head, and do you know what’s worse than having a song stuck in your head?? Having a song stuck in your head that you don’t know the words to! Aaarrg! The only thing I kept singing was “If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain. If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain…” hmm hmmm, then I’d repeat that sentence over and over again. Seriously check this song out before you do this tutorial, I dare you.
Lets dive in shall we:
- So remember you can use any canvas colour you choose, don’t limit yourself to my colour examples. I used a combo of brown and orange with the yellow. Use your brown or orange to draw your pineapple outlines.
- Let that dry, then add your yellow filling, I used two layers to really make the colour pop.
3. Use a thin brush or a toothpick to do your lines
4. Now add your little spiky, leafy thingies on top and boom. Done! Ha, I probably should have googled the pineapple anatomy before writing this post. Meh, maybe next time.
Super easy, super basic tutorial, the only advise, especially because it’s a layered piece, is to let each step dry fully before moving onto the next step.
Oh, bright idea alert: go on and give this simple technique a go and post your pictures on Twitter and Facebook with the #HouseAdon hashtag and I’ll share/ retweet some of your awesome posts. Please also be sure to post your absolute favourite selfie on Instagram with the #HouseAdonFlamingo hashtag (because all my readers are exotic, flamboyant birds) and I’ll post your awesome selfies on the House Adon website Gallery for the world to enjoy, because you should never keep your awesomeness to yourself. I’m also dying to know if you found this tutorial easy? Drop a comment and let me know.
P.S To get you geared up for the week ahead I want you to have this FREE WEEKLY MEAL PLANNER! Enjoy 🙂
