Easter Nails! | NOTD



Hello Lovelies, I don't know about you, but I'm rather excited about it being Easter this weekend and to get in the mood I've come up with an Easter design on my nails. It's ever so easy and simple to do and not only would look perfect for Easter, but anytime this spring. 


To get this look all you need to do is choose two shades of nail polish that you think will look great together. I've used two Barry M Nails paints for my nails. When you've picked two gorgeous polishes, paint your nails alternating the colours. 



To achieve the dotting effect and the pretty little bow, I've used the Professional Nail Art Pens from Rio Beauty (full review here). I can not express how much these pens help to assist you on any nail art design as they literally do all the hard work for you, all you need is a steady hand! If you don't have any nail art pens, you can always use anything with a small tip such as a toothpick or kirbie grip / bobby pin. 



Randomly place dots all over your painted nails, but leave some space at the top of your ring finger, this is where the little bow will go. For the bow, I simply placed a dot in the centre and added two inward triangles on either side. When the bow has dried simply place a white dot in the middle. Once your nails have fully dried just add a top coat to add some shine and keep the chips at bay. 


I really love this design and think it's super cute. I've had a few people tell me that they look like mini Easter eggs! If you decide to give this ago please let me know as I would love see a picture of your take on the look. If your on Twitter just send me a picture on there @sunshinesprkle or showcase it on your own blog and send me a link in the comments. 

Lots of love
