Feeling Festive: Easter Nails

If I had to make a list of all the things I’m not good at, painting my nails would probably be right under ‘studying Chemistry’.

I constantly find myself watching nail art tutorials on Youtube and be like, meh too much work. I know – I’m impatient. But since it’s Easter tomorrow, I was feeling a little festive so I decided to show you my creation.

First, apply a base coat to protect your natural nail.

Then paint your nails a colour of your choice – I chose a mint colour but I think it would also look great using a white nail polish as your base colour . You may need to go over it more than once depending on the opacity of your nail polish.

Let your base colour to dry and then, using a dotting tool, dot on different coloured spots to your preference. In my opinion, the more random the spots are, the cuter it looks. Also, I used different sized spots to give the design more texture.

Finish off with your favourite fast-drying top coat to seal in your design and you’re good to go.
