I feel like this one was a “must do” — a lot of people come to the site looking for lemon nails and all I’ve had is this lemon-colored striped mani with some little leaves added, which doesn’t seem right (look, there’s a LOT of stuff here, and if you’re looking for lemon nails they should be here, right?).  So here ya go!  The lemons were done with acrylic paint (same outline method: go in with the black first to block off the lemons and leaves, fill that in with colors, then finish with some black touchups) and the nail polish is the purpletasticness of OPI Dim Sum Plum (so happy to finally have this one, I’ve been lusting after it for months).

    Thanks ladies! It kinda does look like a tablecloth! And YES “lemon nails” has been one of the top searches to the site for weeks, I’m kinda baffled (is this lemon month somewhere or something?)…
