These are my nails for this Easter weekend. Not quite Easter-y but I was inspired by some yellow tulips that my mom bought for the occasion.
I've never really done nail art like this before. I'm usually more into flat patterns and geometric things so this was a bit of a challenge. I tried to shade the tulips and give them some dimension but they didn't turn out quite how I wanted. The idea was better in my mind and I don't think I was able to make it clear enough on the nails.
I started off with Seche Chemise on all nails. I painted on everything else with a small nail art brush. For highlights I mixed the base colour of each tulip with white. For the thumb I used Quo by Orly True Love and shaded with OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips (how appropriate). On the index finger I used Essie Van D'Go, shaded with American Apparel Rose Bowl. On the middle finger I used American Apparel Manila and mixed it with American Apparel Rose Bowl to shade. On the ring finger I used China Glaze Sweet Hook and shaded with Essie Play Date. For the little finger and the butterfly I used China Glaze Breakin' and OPI A Roll In The Hague.
Phew, that was a lot of polish. Anyway, whether you celebrate it or not, I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend and indulge in some chocolate! :)
