Egg-Cellent Nail Design!
Selena DeHart of Pink U Rock nail art blog is lending us her glossy nails for some mani love! Check out her festive Easter nail design and how you can do it yourself!
Ready for Easter
The Easter holiday is upon us, so today I have some more festive holiday nails. Easter always seems to bring out the spring season full of pastels and sunny colors. I'm so excited for some color! When deciding what I could do to be festive, I chose to keep a color scheme rather than a specific Easter design. I used dyed and decorated eggs as my inspiration.
Color for thought
I picked an array of pastel colors for this look. The look is called a gradient in the nail world so it does take lots of color, especially since each nail is different. I used Essie Blanc as a base. The colors I used for the gradient are Lime Crime in Pastelchio, Crema de Limon and Peaches Cream, and Sinful Colors in Sweet Tooth, Cotton Candy, Sugar Rush, Candy Coated and Sweet Nothing.
Get your tools
You will need a few tools for this look. Most important is a triangle makeup sponge. I cut it in half to get more use out of it since my nails are small. You will also need a small brush or a Q-tip for clean up, and a dotting tool. A toothpick or bobby pin will also work if you need to improvise for a dotting tool. Finally, some top coat and, most definitely, nail polish remover or pure acetone.
