Lately I’ve stuck to only using one colour when painting my nails but this time I thought I could do with something more fun so I did an Easter nail design.
I got inspired by egg decorations but wanted to keep it simple. I don’t have any nail design tools so could only stick with polka dots as it’s easy to create using an old hair pin. I chose some pastel colours as it’s springtime and also very popular right now. To make it more elegant and sparkly I also used a gold nail polish. For the polka dots I’ve only used white.
Start by applying a base coat on all nails. Whilst it dries, decide which colour should go on which nail.
Apply two coats of each colour on each nail. I chose one white, one gold, one mint green, two pink on the left hand and swapped pink and mint green for the right hand.
Use an old hair pin and dip in the white nail polish and create polka dot pattern on the pink and the mint green nails. Do the same with the gold nail polish on the white nails. Leave the gold nail pattern free.
Apply a top coat on all nails. I’ve always used Barry M’s base and top coat combined but got recommended to use No.7 ‘s top coat instead as it dries quicker and lasts longer.
What do you think? Have you painted your nails this Easter?
