Easter Nails

I managed to finally do my Easter nails! I'm still new to freehanding nail art, but I thought I would give some simple stripes a try.


I have seen so many cute Easter nails, so I just didn't know what to do for my own! Pastels were clearly on mind, so I went with that. And after seeing Michelle Phan's Easter nail tutorial, I knew what I was going to do.


I went with designs pretty close to the ones seen in her video. I did, however, make each nail a different color, but switched up the designs a bit.


I first applied a base coat, then a different color on each nail. It took a few coats for each since the pastel Revlons are a bit thin to me. Then I took my accent colors and applied them with a dotting tool, and did the stripes with a very fine brush. I then topped it with Seche Vite. 


The colors I used for each nail base:
  • Revlon Pink Chiffon
  • Revlon Dreamer
  • Revlon Sunshine Sparkle
  • Revlon Minted
  • mini Ulta Lav-ish

Colors for decorating: 
  • Ulta Sweetheart Pink
  • Ulta Cream of the Crop
  • Ulta Mint Condition (thought it's blue)
  • Ulta Snow White

Happy Easter!

    1. Aww, thank you! I know I'm not very good at it yet compared to other people. It takes a while to get the hang of! You could always get some dotting tools to begin :) simple designs, but really cute and fun!
