I’ve always loved giving my nails a theme, and since today is Easter Sunday I thought I’d kick things off with an appropriately pastel-coloured Easter Bunny design.
Base coat/top coat
Any pastel shade (as many as you like)
White (or other rabbit colour)
Dotting tool (1 small, one large)
- Start off with your favourite pastel shade base. I’ve gone for a different colour on each nail, but it looks really cute with one colour (and maybe one other accent).
2. Next you need a colour for your bunnies. White is ideal, but you can play around with all sorts of rabbit shades.
3. First, with the nail varnish brush, paint a small arc. This is the very top of the bunny’s head:
…then with the dotting tool paint two long ears:
4. Wait for that layer to dry (always my downfall) then use a smaller dotting tool to draw a line of pink on each ear, to give your bunny rabbits a bit more definition:
Finish with your favourite top coat, and you’re ready for the egg hunt.
I definitely prefer the blue with the white ears, so I may try this again with fewer colours. If you’re feeling extra adventurous this would wok really well with a gradient background, but overall this is a nice and relatively simple design, which also works brilliantly on shorter nails. Not everyone has salon talons! I decided against adding eyes or noses as I didn’t want the design to look too busy, but if my nails were longer I’d give it a go. If you try this one out, or if you have any tips let me know in the comments below. Happy Easter! x
