Happy Easter everyone. I hope you all had or have a wonderful day. We had a picnic mixed with egg hunts and a wander around a local park with a beautiful man made creek where the kids could float leaf 'boats' down to the larger pond. They had a wonderful time until Miss 3 fell in the creek!
Here are my Easter nails. I don't know what it is about nail art foil, but every Easter I'm drawn to it and end up using it for my Easter nail art design. This year I did small chocolate foil cover eggs, where the foil has been unwrapped at the top showing the chocolate. Yummmm.
I used OPI Don't Pretzel my Buttons as my base. I love that shade, it is my perfect nude. I then painted the egg on free hand, using the most perfect chocolate coloured polish, Picture Polish Malt Teaser. I then applied nail foil glue to three quarters of the egg. Once it was dry I applied a different coloured foil on each nail. For that final extra touch, I added a little bit more foil glue at the top were the foil would be folded back. I then applied a silver foil to those bits. I makes them look like the silver inside of the foil wrapper is showing.
I wasn't worried about the foil crinkling up for this mani, in fact for a more realistic look, I wanted the foil a bit wrinkled. Therefore I just slapped on a coat of Seche Vite to finish it off.
Enjoy your noms today.
