Easter Chick Nails

Happy Easter Peeps!

I’m super excited because I usually have to work every Sunday, but I’m off today for the holiday so I have a 4-day weekend. It doesn’t get much better than that πŸ™‚

First off, I realized that yesterday I forgot to mention a couple other bloggers that let me know they’d be doing some blue posts for Autism Awareness month. They are:

Anyway, I was originally planning on doing a simple mani for today, but yesterday afternoon I got the itch to try out some nail art (even though we all know that I royally suck at it).

Because I’m very challenged when it comes to nail art, I had to do something that would be fairly simple, and it had to involve dotting tools because they’re pretty easy to work with.Β In the pics below you’ll see what I came up with. My dots aren’t perfectly spaced, and I smeared a couple of them a bit when I applied top coat, but overall I’m pretty proud of my final result.

On my index and pinky fingers I used 2 coats of China Glaze Kinetic Candy, and on my middle finger and thumb (not pictured)Β I used 2 coats of China Glaze For Audrey. Then using a small dotting tool I randomly placed dots over each nail using China Glaze Happy Go Lucky.

To create the little chick on my ring finger, I used 3 coats of Happy Go Lucky, then I drew the little broken shell on my tips using OPI Alpine Snow and my dotting tool. I finished it off using Wet ‘n Wild Black Creme for the eyes and Zoya Paz for the little beak. Peep it πŸ˜‰





So, as I said before, I’m pretty happy with how these came out. It took me an exorbitant amount of time to do this, and I redid my ring finger like 5 times, but it was worth it.

That being said, I think I’m gonna continue to stay far away from nail art (unless it’s a special occasion), because I’m just not naturally good at it so it takes way more effort than I’m willing to exert on a regular basis.

Are any of you wearing a special Easter mani today?

Let me know what you think of my little chick nails, and have a Happy Easter! πŸ™‚
