Easter Nail Art: Peeps!

Last year, I had a very cute nail art design for Easter that was reminiscent of a little basket with flowers and decorated eggs. This year, I went for a different Easter staple: Peeps!

Besides my grandmother, no one in my family really likes Peeps all that much, but I still always put them in our Easter baskets. They are just so cute! I obviously had to use them in my holiday design.

I wasn’t planning on getting a manicure this week, but Husband and I had an hour to kill before a tour yesterday with nothing to do, so I decided to get a fun spring-y color on my nails as the base for a nail art I could do later. Plus, my cuticles were so dry and gross- they really needed the love.

I picked OPI’s “Sit Under The Apple Tree” green, which came out lighter than I thought it would, but is still really fun. Plus it’s shimmery, which I love. You can use whatever color or brand of polish you like for this, though!

Materials:

  • Nail polish of your choice for base coat
  • Acrylic paint in: white, black, teal, purple, pink and yellow
  • Large and small dotting tools
  • Clear top coat

Instructions:

  • With clean dry nails, do one to two coats of your preferred base coat shade and let dry.
  • Put a dab of each color on your palette.
  • Put a dab of white beside each color.
  • Mix the white in to each to make it lighter and give it more “pop” on your nails!
  • Use your largest dotting tool dipped in the first color to make a bunny body and adjoining body head on your ring finger.
  • Next, use the opposite side/smaller dotting tool in the same color to make two bunny ears.
  • Repeat using the other colors on your other ring finger and both thumbs. Let dry. Don’t worry about the paint looking stippled- your clear coat will smooth it out.
  • Use your smallest dotting tool dipped in black paint to make little eyes and noses on the bunnies. Let dry.
  • Seal in your PEEPS! look with a clear top coat and let dry. Done!
