STEP 1

First of all it is important to make sure your nails are clean and ready to be painted before we start, so we need to do a little bit of preparation. If you have nail varnish on already, you will need to take it off with some nail varnish remover. After this is done, I usually wash my hands just to ensure my nails are completely clean.

Then it’s time to tidy your nails up a little and to shape them to how you want, using with your file. Also, if you want make your nails appear longer – you can push back your cuticles. If you place your hand in some warm water for a few minutes, it will help soften your skin making it easier for you to do this.

Once you are ready, you should apply a base coat to your nail as this will protect your nails from being stained but also will make applying your nail varnish much smoother. We used the Vitamin Base Coat (1) to do this.

STEP 2

Once your base coat is dry (this shouldn’t take too long), we can start moving on to the more exciting parts – deciding what colour you want your nails to be! For this look, we decided to have the ring finger as the main focus so we painted that nail with the white (3) nail varnish, and the rest with the gorgeous nail varnish in the colour Go Wild-er-ness (2). We applied 2 coats as this made sure the nails were covered well.

We recommend you apply two thin coats rather than one thick one as the thicker the coat, the longer it will take to dry.

STEP 3

Once the white nail varnish is dry, it’s time to start creating this gorgeous Easter egg look! The first thing we need to do is paint on some lines across the nail. To do this, we used the striping brush (8) and used the pink (4), yellow (7) and turquoise (5) nail varnishes.

STEP 4

Once you have finished painting on the lines, it’s time to add the zigzags! As you can see in the photo above – we did change the yellow stripe to be turquoise instead.

We painted on the yellow zigzag between the pink lines first, using the dotting tool (9) and the nail varnish in the colour Lemon Meringue (7) and then painted on the orange zigzag between the turquoise lines using the dotting tool (9) and the nail varnish in the colour Peachella (6).

Next it’s time to paint on some purple dots using the dotting tool (9) and the nail varnish in the colour Go Wild-er-ness (2).

STEP 6

Now it’s time to add the final touches to this look! Firstly, we painted on another line above the purple dots using the striping brush (8) and the nail varnish in the colour Peachella (6). Next we painted on small parts of a zigzag at the top of the nail – to do this, we used the dotting tool (9) with the nail varnish in the colour Breakfast In Bed (5). To then complete the look, we painted dots in between the zigzags using the dotting tool (9) with orange (6) dots in between the yellow zigzag, and yellow (7) dots in between the orange zigzag.

And that’s how we created this gorgeous Easter egg nail look! It’s such a cute look for your nails this Easter and spring!

    I love how creative this is and how much detail went into creating the perfect easter egg! I usually do one coat but doing a double coat would probably be a better route instead. This is such a cute nail art idea – especially love all the colors used!

    I love the Rimmel London 60 second nail polishes, they’re such good quality for the price! The purple is a beautiful colour. I wish I could be as patience and steady to be able to draw on the detail for the Easter egg, it’s such a beautiful design! Happy Easter ☺️
