Easter Mini Egg Nails!!

I'm very happy with these! I wanted something Easter-y for this weekend and I'm not quite up to the standard of painting little chicks on my nails so mini eggs it is!

I started trying to find as many pastel shades as possible (these aren't my fave so it took a while to scramble through everything) and I settled on these ones. A great selection on Ciate, Me Me Me, Nails Inc, Essie and AKA Cosmetics. 

From left to right - the Nails Inc InStyle special, Me Me Me in Ambitious, AKA Cosmetics in Candy Floss, Essie Where's my Chaffeur and Ciate Purple Sherbet.

Paint on two coats of each and allow to dry fully. Then get a pale brown nail polish for the mini egg effect. I used Nails Inc Jermyn Street.

Make sure you barely have any of the polish on the brush and randomly dab it onto your nails - no special equipment needed. You don't want it really perfect, which was good when it came to doing it with my left hand! The effect is this:

  Pretty cool eh?! Mini egg nails!! I've been enjoying it all weekend. Have any of you done anything special on your nails this Easter?
