Editorial manicurist Alicia Torello created this juicy summer nail look using Essie nail lacquers. 

1. Apply one coat of Essie's Here to Stay Base Coat.

2. Take a striping brush to create the moon shape at the base of each nail using the shade Watermelon, then go back and trace along the edge of the moon with Mojito Madness to create the rind.

3.To create the dots, use a dotting tool or a toothpick and add a few reandom seeds using the shade Licorice.

4.Finish with Essie's Speed.Setter for added shine!
