Veeah Chitwood demonstrates how to do Summer’s Perfect Lemonade nails.


1. Start with a hot pink color in a matte finish. Add diagonal stripes in light pink using a fine brush.


2. Block out the shape of the glass using white polish or paint.


3. Using OPI Sheer Tint Gloss in blue, create the liquid lemonade outline. Fill in the contents of the glass and the lemon with yellow polish or paint.


4. Paint red stripes on the straw. Paint ice cubes using a watered-down acrylic paint to produce a translucent effect.


5. Using a fine Sharpie in black, outline the details of choice. Add a gloss gel top coat to the glass only.
