Easter Mix Up

I finally had a chance to do some nail art, and it seemed appropriate to do some Easter/springy nails for the holiday tomorrow.

I had quite a time getting these to photograph correctly... and even know they still leave a bit to be desired. But you get the idea and I hope you like these! :)


For this design, I used:

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White 

OPI Sparrow Me the Drama
OPI Do You Lilac It?
China Glaze Re-fresh Mint
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky
China Glaze Peachy Keen 

Emily helped me brainstorm and pick out the colors for these, and I love the way that they turned out! All of the designs are freehanded with a number of different brushes and dotters. 

I did a little half moon sun on my thumb: 



On my first go at this design, I did a woven basket nail on my ring finger using this tutorial. I liked it but ultimately decided to redo that one nail with the chick design you see in the other photos. Check out the basket nail below.


I even managed to do this design well on my non dominant hand (not pictured)! I love when nails are skittle designs (also known as a "mix up" I think).


What do you think? Have you done any Easter or spring nail art designs?

  7. I like it. They look like an Easter sampler. I've done 3 Easter themed manis so far. I'm working on pastels now for the "April Showers Bring May Flowers" nail art challenge.

  17. Love them all! I started out with bunnies and polka dots but after getting some pastel colors I redid them with chicks in eggs and some zigzag stripey/dotted easter egg looking things lol.

  19. Very cute and might even be something I could do. I finally am collecting a file of ideas for nail art so when I need them I don't have a blank mind - me who is so non original. I can copy well but not an inventive artist!
