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.
