It’s almost Eastertime! I feel like the holiday really snuck up on me this year. Last year by this time I did a bunch of easter posts, including an embellished nail polish egg (see the prop in my pic below), a tutorial on how to decorate eggs with polish, and also some cutesy chick nails. I was really on a roll.
But so far, this is all I’ve come up with for 2014. It’s a french manicure with tiny colored eggs painted over top. Fingers crossed that you can tell that they’re eggs!
I started with a classic french mani that I free-handed. Then I stamped a green basket weave print over top using AVON Garden Green and my MASH-39 stamping plate. Then I made some bright easter eggs in pink, blue, purple and yellow using a dotting tool and a small brush. I did a sparkly coat of Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope on top and then some seche vite. I think my eggs would’ve looked more pronounced over a solid white background. This was kind of a waste of a nice french mani since you can’t even really see it! On the bright side, this got me in the easter mood! And it’s just in time for our week 3 theme for the April Nail Art Ideas Linkup.

I love how colorful your Easter eggs turned out. Its nice!
Of course I can tell they’re eggs! Or jelly beans.. 😉 Cute design with the weave stamp.
Oh good! I wasn’t sure if they looked like splotches or eggs 🙂
i see what you meant! i’m not even christian, but passover nails don’t have the same…ring to them. honestly i hate matzoh, why would i want it on my nails?! bunnies are so much cuter!
sidebar, i have sheep on right now. but they turned green from my base color and look like fluffy aliens. someone needs to invent a top coat that stops color bleeding.
Now i wanna see your alien sheep lol
luckily i took all the photos that i’ll be using before they turned an eery green. But seriously. Light green sheep. but patchy because I made them using dots so the center of each dot is still white! i have no idea if this makes sense.
I love this design, great job 😀 xx
It is such a cute idea that the eggs are in the basket, so creative! Also – yeey sparkly coat! 😀
Ooh that’s a different Easter mani, love it!
Love these! So cute and Eastery!
