Well, Easter is right around the corner, and unfortunately, I am so not ready for it because I have been sick. My illness has kept me from doing to do much of anything except feel sick. I went to the doctor today and he says it’s bronchitis.
But, holidays don’t slow down just because we are sick, and I decided that I have to do at least a couple of cute things for the Easter Holiday. I love having cute finger nails, so I decided to do a tutorial on how to paint these really cute Easter Egg Chick Nails.
So, here we go!
Like always, start out with a clear base coat on your nails. Using a base coat and a top coat make your polish last so much longer. And darn it, if I am going to spend time making my nails look cute, I want it to last as long as it can. Let’s face it, a mother of 2 small children is lucky to find the time to do this in the first place, right?
After the base coat dried, I painted my entire nails with the dark yellow from my Nail Art Kit. I used two coats of paint. If you don’t have a kit like this, but have some yellow nail polish, use that. The yellow color will be your little Easter chick.
Let the yellow coat dry thoroughly before proceeding to the next step.
Next I used the white color from my Nail Art Kit. Using the pen tip, draw a horizontal zigzag line for the top of the egg and another for the bottom of the egg. When deciding how to draw your zigzag line, think about where you will place your Easter chick’s eyes and where you will place your Easter chick’s beak. You will need a space large enough for the tip of the beak.
After you draw your zigzag, you can either fill in the white with the brush, or the pen tip. I used the brush for most of mine, but had to use the pen tip to fill in my pinky finger – it was too small for the brush.
Now, you’ve completed the hardest part, and it’s time for the easy stuff.
I used the black pen tip from my Nail Art Kit and drew two tiny beady little eyes for my Easter chick.
Then I finished off my design with the orange pen tip. Draw small orange triangles for your Easter chick’s beak, and viola, you are done!!
Now, if you have some more time, and artistic ability, you could even add some colorful decoration to your little white Easter eggs. I think it would be so cute, and if I felt better, I would take the time to do it myself. But, oh well, maybe next time.
Once the paint dries, don’t forget to finish off with a clear top coat. It really does make the overall design look better.
Hope you all enjoy your Easter Holiday!
