Easter (Egg) Nails


Now to be honest I don't really do anything exciting around Easter time except eat chocolate, however, this year I felt inspired to make use of a couple of Illamasqua nail varnishes I picked up last year, Mottle a speckled green and Scarce a speckled pink. Both are gorgeous shades but are sadly not available any longer however Models Own have released a very similar style. It was actually seeing the Models Own Speckled Egg collection that inspired me to dig out the Illamasqua nail varnishes and do something with them. I actually had my sensible head on and although the Models Own ones are tempting I'm not going to double up on an effect I already have.

I wanted to utilise both and although I still love the standard alternating two colours between nails I decided to do something a little different. Nothing too hard because I'm not very adept when it comes to fiddly nail stuff, instead I painted all of my nails in the green (mottle) then, once dry, I used a nail varnish remover to remove a good chunk of the varnish on the tips of my middle three finger nails, leaving my thumb and little finger nails intact. Then I simply finished it off painting the tips with Scarce, the pink varnish. A completely effortless sweet style.
