Happy Easter gorgeous girls! I hope your all having a fabulous weekend and if your lucky enough, enjoying the bank holidays. I've had to work on Friday and will be working again Monday, no four day weekend for me booo :(. But regardless of that, I still intend to enjoy every bit of this weekend and get into the Easter grove. I'm up north visiting my nana and will be off out this evening to celebrate my dads birthday - Fun fun fun! As with any occasion painting your nails is a must, and today I felt inspired to do some Easter Egg nail art.
There was no great difficultly in achieving this simple nail art design, I simply picked out the colours I wanted on my nails and went a bit wild with my dotting tool. I combined lines and dots to achieve a nail look that somewhat resembles the wrapping of an Easter Egg, pretty cool I think and very appropriate for this weekend. I really love this design as its fun, super cute and I'm able to wear a lot of pretty colours all at once. You can get this look, or create something similar with three easy peasy steps.
1. Paint your nails a base colour, I've used a sheer baby pink as I've lost my white nail polish. I think a light colour will work best for this as it will make all the other colours really pop and stand out.
2. Once your nails are dry, take a nail striper or nail art pen and draw two lines horizontally across the nail. Then take a dotting tool and at the tip of the nails, dot loads of dots in a row to create a pretty scalloped edge.
3. Once your stripes have all dried, take your dotting tool and place dots different shapes and sizes on and in-between your lines (be dotting crazy as your like). Once all your dots have dried seal your design with a topcoat to smooth out any bumps and to give your nails that super glossy look.
And it's as simple as that! Have you been getting creative with Easter nail art? Let me know I would love to see your designs.
Lot's of Love
