Fall may be upon us, but that doesn't mean you can't rock a fun summer-inspired manicure! Editorial manicurist Alicia Torello (@aliciatnails) has created a special nail art look using some of essie's most-loved shades. Check out her DIY tutorial below to recreate this look for yourself and your friends:

Watermelon Mani:

1. Start with a base coat, like essie’s new 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, you can use a dotting tool or toothpick and add a few random seeds using the shade licorice.

4. Finish with a top coat like essie’s speed.setter for the quick drying time and added shine!
