Nail Art: Easter Design

Nail Art: Easter Design

This week’s nail art design is perfect for Easter Sunday! It incorporates little speckled Easter eggs and a little lattice/basket weave accent nail with flowers. They are simple and easy and were fun to paint (even if they were a little hard to do on my left hand!)

Materials:

  • Clear base coat
  • Sheer pink transparent nail polish
  • Lime or bright green nail polish
  • Orchid or lavender nail polish
  • Blue nail polish
  • White striper
  • Dotting tools/bobby pins/toothpicks

Instructions:

  • Start out with clean dry nails.
  • Do a coat of clear base coat and let it dry.

  • After a first coat is dry, do a second if your polish is streaky. I may have even gone for a third with this one, but I was getting too impatient! You can see below that a second coat wasn’t even too noticeable!
  • Next you can do your accent nail. I used a white striper to draw a criss-cross basket weave/lattice design on my ring fingers.

  • Next, I used my dotting tool to make two flowers on each accent nail. I made five dots for the bigger flower, and four for the smaller. Use whatever colors you like for the petals! Just be sure the center of each flower is in a contrasting color!
  • Now you can move on to the eggs! Make different sized, different colored eggs using your dotting tools on each nail. Play around with them! Put them wherever you like!
  • Once all your eggs are in a row, it’s time to put speckles on them! I used the tip of my striper tool to do this, but you can use a dotting tool again!
  • Put on a coat of clear top coat and you’re golden!

  • Once your nails are totally 110% dry, gently scrap the excess polish off your skin while washing your hands.
