This is what it look like. Pinkie and ring finger done with sponge. Pointer and middle done with a toothpick.

I'm doing the outside of the watermelon on my thumb. So I put a bunch of green polish on the makeup sponge and put it all over my thumb nail.
I used a nail art brush, you can use a toothpick (dotting tool, whatever) and make lines. You can make them straight.
You use a toothpick (dotting tool, whatever to make black dots, the seeds. You can do as many or as few as you want. Random or organized.... Black dots.
Someone just gave me these, and I'm trying them for the first time, on my ring finger. You can get these at Claire's, or micro beads at any craft store. .
Use a q-tip or small brush and use remover and clean up around your nails.
Add topcoat. If you used micro beads, be really careful not to nudge them out of place, but use a lot of topcoat. It's what will keep the beads on your nail.
Hope your nails turn out great! Tell me what kind of guides you'd like and I'll be happy to do them.
