Great ideas, I normally do nail art with a v. fine paintbrush instead of a toothpick. I just find it a bit easier that way!

Hee, Hee. Sorry, this post made me laugh.  When I got engaged to my ex-husband my nails were painted up like watermelon slices. So, when everyone asked to see my ring, I would flash them my handful of little watermelons!  I think I got more comments on my nails then I did on my ring!!  Cheesy

Oh, and about the toothpicks - If you don't like using regular toothpicks you may want to try the flat toothpicks. I like them the best because they are easier to hold onto, and hold paint better.

Love your ideas. I've painted the tip a different colour from the main before but never thought about making a watermelon theme.

i've found it easy to make straight lines by putting cutting a thin piece of tape wherever and if you want the lines a little zigzag like then dont cut the tape :] hope that helps some

i think the best idea i've had so far for my nails is not to paint them, MOD PODGE them.
cut out ten nail-shaped patterns from anything you like (construction paper, origami, magazine clippings, w/e) and mod podge them onto your nails.
i cured my nail-biting habits with this method...
but the thing is, they come off in the shower, so you need to redo them everyday.
my friends find it fascinating, though, that i come to school every day with different nails than the day before... it's really interesting and does nothing to damage your nails.
