Nothing says Easter and Spring like adorable bunnies, embellished eggs, and pretty pastels! We got together with our in-house nail expert, Romee Ham, to create an easy and fun DIY Easter nail tutorial you can rock this Sunday. Here's the breakdown.
What You'll Need:
CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Color in Mimosa
Orly 'Sweet Collection' Nail Lacquer in Lollipop
Orly 'Sweet Collection' Nail Lacquer in Gumdrop
Orly Nail Lacquer in White Out
Wet N Wild Wild Shine Nail Color in Tickled Pink
Duri Rejuvacote Base Coat
Duri Miracote Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat
STEP 1 Base Coat
In broad, even strokes, apply a thin layer of your favorite base coat.
STEP 2 Polish Nails
Apply two coats of pastel polish on each finger. Allow 3-5 minutes of drying time between each coat. "When applying pastel polishes, use a light hand," Romee says. "Light colored polishes show streaks more easily, so you need to reduce how much pressure you put on your nails."
STEP 3 Brush On The Bunny!
Using a thin brush from the arts and crafts store (Romee is using a Princeton Art and Brush Co. Round 3050R size 0 brush), paint on the silhouette of a bunny on whichever nail you prefer. Paint on the bunny's ears, nose, and bow tie with a hot pink or coral polish. Use a black or dark blue lacquer for the bunny's eyes and nose. Make sure to wipe your brush with a paper towel and nail polish remover between colors.
STEP 4 Adorn the Eggs!
Use color and texture to create custom decorated eggs on your thumb. Experiment with stripes, polka dots, and glitter—have fun with it!
STEP 5 Top Coat
Seal your Easter-inspired tips with a long-lasting, glossy top coat. There you have it—pretty pastel nails. Happy Easter-egg hunting, Beauties!
