Charming Easter Nail Designs that Deserve Your Attention
Check out these Easter nail ideas and tutorials to get inspired:
1. Pastel Colors with Speckles – Easter Nail Colors
If you want mini Egg nails that aren’t too over-the-top, try using pastel colors with speckles. This nail design is simple and elegant, but still has a bit of Easter flair.
All you need is pastel nail polish in your desired color and a contrasting color to paint small dots on top. You can even use different colors for each finger for a really fun look.
Start by painting your nails with two coats of light pink or blue polish. Once the first coat is dry, use a toothpick to add dark speckles to the nails. Repeat the process with a second coat of polish to seal in the speckles.
2. Baby Chick – Easter Nail Ideas
If you’re interested in Easter chick nails, you can paint your nails yellow with purple stripes. One nail can be white and have a chick on it.
Start by painting all your nails with a base coat of yellow polish. Then, paint one nail white and add a chick outline on top. Use a fine brush to make a triangle inside the lines for the beak and two dots for the eyes.
Lastly, paint purple stripes across at least one yellow nail using tape or stickers as guides to create straight lines. You can also use this technique to create vertical instead of horizontal stripes if you prefer.
3. Bunny – Easy Easter Nails
Easter bunny nail designs can be done in lots of different ways. For example, you can use pastel colors with bunnies hiding in the corner of each nail.
One way is to paint all your nails light pink. Then, use a different color to paint the bunny on one nail. The best colors for this are purple, pink, green, and white.
For the other nails, you can paint the corner with any color or just leave it blank. It doesn’t need to coordinate perfectly with your bunny nail.
4. Simple Bunny – Cute Easter Easter Nails
A simple way to obtain Easter nails is by painting all nails in pastel colors, applying white speckles, and adding the delicate silhouette of a bunny on a single nail.
Begin by applying a base coat to the nails. Next, paint the nail tips white and use a small sharp object like a toothpick to apply the white speckles on top.
After it dries, apply another layer of polish to seal in the specks. Similarly, you can use the toothpick to create the bunny silhouette on one nail.
5. Baby Pink – Easter Acrylic Nails
If you’re looking for baby pink nail designs for Easter, polka dots are a great choice. This is a low-commitment design that still looks cute and festive.
Additionally, you can decorate tiny Easter eggs and a bunny. It’s a fantastic design because you can do it with any shade of pink.
