I was thinking of going all crazy skittle Easter egg nails for this, but then I went towards something simple. I have not done a successful half moon in a while. I keep messing up the paper reinforcers. So I try free-hand, then really mess it up, and end up taking it off. So I got determined (it helped that I had a whole day of nothing planned) and got to it. I picked some colors that would be opaque enough for one coat. Waiting for them to dry is one of my big problems. I always get impatient.
I was excited to do my Easter nails, since I've been craving all the lovely pastels and I had a mani in mind that'd use a bunch all together. So here are my Easter egg nails! Originally, my plan was to do a little chick in half a shell on my ring fingers, but it didn't work out. I didn't have all night to wait on the base color to dry before putting tape down for that zigzag. When I tried freehanding it, I realized my short nails weren't enough of a "canvas" to give enough space for a part of shell and a little chick with a face. It just wasn't working out.
