Just as strawberries are my go-to fruit in spring (read here how to enjoy the flavor all year round), my indulgence over the summer months are watermelons.
Read on for my experience with the polish and a quick recipe.
Now no need to hurry to get it, it is a permanent shade, but one I feel shouldn’t be missing in your collection come summer.
Well maybe, although I think it is a very pink red. A raspberry red, most likely.
I would say fierce.
Always in season?
I wear it throughout summer, mostly on my toes. During the other seasons… not so much.

On me it is opaque in one swipe (but I prefer to do two layers with any polish) and lasts for around three days without chipping (quite good on my chip-prone nails).
Now as far as watermelon the vegetable goes: I eat it happily just like it is, but I understand some people might like a little more variation.
So if you are looking for a twist, try one of these.
1. Watermelon salad with feta cheese:
Cut up a watermelon, crumble some feta cheese, add some fresh mint leaves and drizzle balsamic vinegar on top. Mix and enjoy!

2. Watermelon Shake:
This is one my husband will greet me with after a long days work. Refreshing and tasty, as well as easy to make:
Cut up watermelon, add crushed ice and two table spoons of greek yoghurt and put everything in your blender.
I feel like you don’t need any additional sugar, but of course you can add sugar, honey or agave nectar.
Or a cheeky shot alcohol of your choice. Totally up to you.

Now tell me:
Do you own this or a similar shade?
And how do you like your watermelon best?
