DIY Easter Nails


Hello loves!  Today I will be showing you 5 super cute and easy Easter nail designs.


You will need the following:


-Spring color nail polish {including black}


-Toothpicks


-Thin tip nail brush {or paint brush}


-Nail polish remover and cotton balls {only if you need to take off old nail polish}



Step one:


Paint your thumb nail yellow.



Index nail purple.



Middle nail pink {you can paint your index and middle nails whatever color you like}.



Ring nail yellow.



And your pinky nail white.



Hatching chick:


Materials:


-Yellow nail polish


-White nail polish


-Black nail polish


-Orange nail polish


-Nail striper


-Toothpicks


With a toothpick dipped in white, make a chevron pattern {see below for better details}





Connect the dots with the nail striper {or paint brush}.



Then fill in the top and bottom part. Leave the middle yellow.



Using your toothpick, make two small black dots for the eyes.




Again using a toothpick, make a small orange triangle for the beak.



Chevron egg:


Materials:


-Purple nail polish


-Pink nail polish {and any other colors you would like}


-Toothpick


-Nail striper


Follow the same steps as you did for the hatching egg above.  You will be making a chevron pattern.




You can do one, two, three, or four rows. I recommend 2-4 rows.


Happy bunny:


Materials:


-White polish


-Pink nail polish striper


-Toothpick


-Black nail polish


Start by painting half a circle {using the white polish} on your middle nail.



Using your nail striper, outline the bunny ear.



Fill it in with white polish. Then, paint a pink stripe down the middle.



With a toothpick, make two small black dots for the eyes {just like the hatching chick}



Still using a toothpick make a small "v" shape for the nose.



Continue with the toothpick and make two small "u" shapes for the mouth.



Little chick:


Materials:


-Yellow nail polish


-Black nail polish


-Orange nail polish


-Toothpick


With a toothpick make two small black dots for the eyes.



With the orange polish make a beak using a toothpick.



Finish it off with two little web feet!




Colorful spring stripes:


Materials:


-White nail polish


-Nail striper {or paint brush}


-Pink nail polish


-Orange nail polish


-Purple nail polish


-Yellow nail polish


This last nail design is super easy!  All you need to do is use your nail striper to draw straight lines across your pinky nail.



I suggest resting your dominant hand on the table for steadiness.


Once your nails are completely dry {wait 45-60 minutes} apply a fast-drying top coat.



Sorry I haven't posted in a few days.  It's been crazy busy around here!  Plan on going to the flea market this weekend.  You can find so many great things there.  It's like searching through a giant treasure chest!  I have some posts planned for this weekend.  So keep an eye out!


Until next time,


Xoxo,Natalie
