Evening my lovely readers & Happy Easter to ya all! Have you all had a Good Friday?? *witty laugh* And can I get a woohoo for the four day weekend! Boom! Well, technically 3 and a half for moi but still…it’s longer than the normal 2 so I’m a happy bunny…speaking of, hope our dear friend the good ol’ Easter Bunny bought you lotsa treats to nomnomnom! :D Am definitely feeling a muchos satisfying sugar buzz myself right now ;)
I knew for sure that I wanted to do an Easter inspired mani but for the life of me just couldn’t decide on what to do! Of course the obvious design idea would be eggs I guess but dolls?? Call me a useless git but it turns out that eggs are PRETTY darn hard to do/draw as nail art! For me anyhoos… :-/ So there I was, sat with my cup o’ java & obligatory apple hot cross bun, munching away waiting for inspiration to strike, when I look down at what was in my hand & BAM! There it was! Hot Cross Bun nails! :D Trust me to find inspiration in food….
What do ya think? At first I wasn’t too sure but I’m actually pretty pleased with how they came out! Once I had decided to transfer this muchos delicious hot cross bun on to my nails, I went a-running to my polishes to gather the suitable colours to create these yummy treats…
I first applied two coats of Nails Inc Caramel, a lovely creamy beige nude polish that reminds me of fudge! NOM! This was one of the polishes from when Nails Inc did their fab Diet Coke collaboration so was limited addition unfortunately, but I’m sure there are equally great dupes out there!
To give my hot cross buns a nice & lightly toasted look to them I then sponged on a little Milani Brown-A-Licious, a pretty shimmery brown shade that my lovely friend Annabella sent me, thank you sweety! :D I think I need to work on my sponging technique though…
Next up were the plump & juicy raisons which could also pass as chocolate chips too I suppose! For these I used Deliciously Dark by Rimmel, a gorgeous deep dark purple which I dotted on using a hair bobby pin.
And finally for the statement cross I used Snowflake by No7, a really nice, creamy white which I painted on using an art brush.
Finished with a thick coat of my fav No 7 Stay Perfect topcoat to seal & that was it! Done! Have to say, I had a hard time of it looking at my nails today without getting hungry… ;)
Hope you like it my lovelies! Thanks as always for reading beauts, have you done an Easter inspired mani? Would love to know what design you’ve gone for this year!
Lotsa love to ya!
