Instructions for the Easter Egg Nails:
Step 1: Apply your base coat. Once dry, apply your blue polish over your entire nail. Dry completely.
Step 2: Using your green polish, paint a thick zigzag in the middle of your nail. Take a thin brush or dotting tool to paint the area above the zigzag in purple polish.
Step 3: Once all colors are dry, use a thin brush or dotting tool to outline the 2 zigzags in gold polish. This will help clean up any mistakes from the previous step, creating cleaner lines separating each color. Once dry, apply your top coat and you’re good to go!
Instructions for the Chick-In-An-Egg Nails:
Step 1: Apply your base coat. Once dry, take your yellow polish and paint a flattened oval shape, starting at the base of your nail. The oval should take up most of your nail, while leaving a bit of room on the top and on the sides.
Step 2: Using your white polish, paint a thin zigzag through the middle of the yellow oval. Paint the nail white up to the tip of your nail. Let dry completely.
Step 3: Using a dotting tool, use orange polish to paint the chick’s beak, black polish for the chick’s eyes and brown polish for the feathers on top of it’s head. Once completely dry, apply a top coat.
Your fingers are now dressed for the occasion – Happy Easter!
