To celebrate the start of the Easter weekend I thought I would show you the easy Easter bunny nail art me and my friend Lydia tried out this morning. I love doing nail art for special occasions and find you can do some really simple techniques that leave cashiers asking 'oo where did you get your nails done?' as you hand over your money. That's what I try to go for anyway...
Nail Varnishes from left to right: Barry M 'Strawberry Ice Cream', Nails Inc. 'Percy Street', Essie 'Turquoise & Caicos', Barry M 'Peach Melba', Beauty Uk 'Blue Moon'.
My nails are the first set at the top of the post and even though you can clearly tell I'm right handed I was still rather pleased with the results! All I did was paint each of my nails in a different pastel colour as I love pastels for Spring, then add white detailing using a lining and dotting tool from Avon, but cocktail sticks and bobby pins work just as well if you don't own one of these. I went for some dotty and stripy Easter egg patterns on three of the nails and did cute bunnies on the other two which I finished off with black eye liner and sealed with the Seche Vite top coat. I actually preferred Lydia's bunny rabbits though as the little bent ears she did looked so cute! I also liked the more simple look she went for by only using one base colour and decorating alternate nails, which would be great if you have to work this weekend or want to wear wear a bit more of an understated look.
Will you be wearing any Easter nail art this weekend?
Since my last post on Tuesday I've had a really lovely few days. My favourite was Wednesday when I went up to London with my boyfriend to see the musical 'The Book of Mormon' (which was so hilarious everyone should go and see it!) and then got wined and dined at Jamie Oliver's Restaurant 'Barbecoa' where I pretty much ate my body weight in delicious food. Then last night I hung out with some friends and have spent Good Friday seeing family and doing nail art of course!
Have a lovely rest of your Good Friday!
