Super Easy Easter Nails



Easter is upon us, can you believe it? Any excuse for me to have a little go at some free hand nail designs.

These designs are pretty generic so I can't really take credit (though the Chinchilla like bunnehs are my own). Dots are courtesy of dotting tools from the lovely Karen's Birthday gift to me. So Yay, Karen!

Fancy a closer look?




As you can see, they're really simple to do and even simpler to recreate on your own pingies. Dots can be made using dotting tools, hair clips or toothpicks and the Easter egg design and more delicate areas are done using a toothpick too. Here's the colours I used but any pastels should do the trick nicely:




While I had said dotting tools out, though, I did try one more look, it might be a little easier to wear, it reminds me of the Easter ribbon D'Mammy used to buy D'Sister & I to plait our hairs up into Easter baskets (we were Rapunzels)



I've got to admit I'm a little taken by the pastels and that's coming from a notorious magpie! 

Have you tried any Spring time/Easter manis?

Haha, Orla, I can think of worse ways to spend my days xx

They're a cinch to do, Hazy, a hairclip or ball point pen could do the trick too x

Sue Jordan said...

Yaaaay, Thank'um, Floss xx

Commander in Chic is a much more muted brownish mauve, Liloo, like Chanel's Particuliere. Greige Gardens rings mauve/purple and it's actually my fave from the Complete Manicure range so far x

Sue Jordan said...

They're optical illusions, Lady, all so simple to do but turn out way better than expected ;)
