Happy Easter & Easter-themed Nail Art Tutorial!11:34 PM
Happy happy Easter everybody! I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter this year. I know I don't talk about religion much on here but I just want to say that I love that Easter is the one holiday that is unabashedly about Jesus. It's definitely a day where we are reminded not to take our lives, spirituality, or others for granted. <3
Even just the thought of what went down so many years ago really humbles me. I'm so thankful for Jesus doing the dang thang since he is the whole reason why I do what I do and am who I am. I plan on spending the day with family, talking with God, and eating LOTS OF GREAT FOOD! :D
I also love the cuteness that comes along with Easter. When I was around 7 a picture was taken for the newspaper of me holding a little white bunny at the Easter petting zoo. I felt like such a rock star in my ruffled lavender dress! The pastel colors and themes of sweet childhood bring me nostalgia and good memories: Easter eggs, baby chicks, and bunny rabbits.
In lieu of that, I decided to make a video tutorial for Easter nails. Honestly I didn't have a plan for what I would do exactly until I sat down, but these brains of mine are particularly handy at coming up with such things on the fly. ;)
Seche Natural (base coat)
Seche Vite Top Coat
China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint
Essie St. Barths Blue
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky
China Glaze Something Sweet
China Glaze Light As Air
Heaven polish in White
Migi Nail Art Pens (black, natural, red)
pink dotting tool set (from www.naildelights.com)
I was super happy with how it turned out! I know all the lines aren't perfect but hey, this is Easter not the Sistine Chapel. This is the first time I really used the Migi Nail Art pens and they were pretty easy to use although they did need to be squeezed and shaken before use otherwise they come out watery. I recommend testing it on a piece of plastic before going straight to the nail.
The dotting tools are my new best friends though. I'd been just using toothpicks up until now. So ghetto. Did anyone notice I used the back of a Black Pearl My Beauty Diary Mask for my blotting plastic? Doubly ghetto.
Anyway, hope you all have a fantastic Easter wherever you are, however you celebrate it! Did you do anything special with your makeup, nails, fashion, or hair for Easter? Share with me in the comments!
