Happy Easter

Easter Nails

Happy Easter everyone!  Hope you are having a fun filled day with family and friends.  I decided to do a more "grown up" look for my Easter nails this year.  The black accents over the pastel blue really give the design a more classic feel, and I'm always a fan of negative space.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Breezy Blues
  • Wet n Wild - Black Crème
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Black Noir
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Born Pretty Store stamping plate - BP-16 (rabbit)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Nail vinyls/guides - chevron, zigzag, and French tip
  • Nail striping tape
  • Dotting tool

This design may look tricky, but it uses a lot of tape and vinyls to create the patterns, so it is quite simple.  To create this look:
  1. Use Breezy Blues to paint the entire index and ring fingers.  Use a chevron vinyl on the pinky, and a French tip vinyl on the thumb (turned so it curves upward instead of the normal downward shape), with Breezy Blues.  And use a French tip vinyl with black polish on the middle finger, to create a normal French tip.

  2. Add some black details to the nails.  Using a vinyl, paint a black chevron on top of the blue chevron on the pinky.  Use three zigzag vinyls to paint two black zigzag lines on the index finger.  And finally, use a dotting tool to create two dotted lines along the edge of the thumb design.

  3. Use striping tape to paint blue lines across the middle finger.

  4. Use black stamping polish to stamp the rabbit (BP-16) onto the ring finger.
