The Digit-al Dozen: Freehand Fruit Salad Skittle Set o' Nail Art


Summer is so luscious and vibrant, so I thought a great manicure idea for this week of The Digit-al Dozen would be a skittle set of 'fruit salad' style nail art! I love fruit, and I love the bounty of fresh produce available with the different seasons. Today I present to you some absolutely adorable mini fruit print skittle nails :)

About the Design

I am really happy with how these came out! They actually look exactly how I hoped they would :) I wanted to mix pastel base colors with the vibrant shades of the fruits. I did the fruits in rainbow order starting with a pink polish and strawberries, then a pale coraly-orange with oranges, pale yellow with adorable bananas (my favorite nail!), mint green with pears, and a jade green with watermelons.

The Polishes & Supplies

I used a mix of tiny striping brushes to freehand the fruits and some various dotting tools - my favorite dotting tool is probably that needle-y sized one. For these I used a lot of different polishes and mixed a lot of the shades for the fruits; definitely too many to list here for you! If you're curious about any specific color please ask in the comments below :D
