If you’re in need of last minute Easter manicure ideas, look no further. Inspired by the latest speckled varnish from nail polish favorite Illamasqua, we created an egg-cellent Easter nail design -- complete with grassy tips that will catch everyone’s eyes at the egg hunt.
The Easter-themed Illamasqua polishes are available in five pastel shades and are pitch perfect for Spring with or without our extra decoration. The black matte glitter design may have been inspired by rotting cardboard, but the line itself oozes Springtime sophistication with just the right dose of cute!
What are you waiting for? Give our wacky egg nails a try!
Illamasqua speckled nail polish in the color of your choice
a clear topcoat (we recommend a matte finish)
green flocking (available from craft supply shops)
Over clean nails, swip two coats of Illamasqua speckled polish in the color of your choice. Can’t choose just one? Try one of each shade like we did!
Allow polish to dry for 30-45 minutes. It should be very dry and resilient to the touch.
Tear off a small piece of cellophane tape and lay it lightly over the nail, leaving the tip exposed. Repeat on each fingernail.
Paint the exposed end of each nail with a matte top coat such as OCC Flatline. We prefer matte to glossy because it matches the effect of the flocking better.
One by one, dip each of your fingertips into your green flocking. Tap each tip lightly to press the flocking into the wet polish for better hold. Allow to dry 2 minutes before blowing away excess flocking.
Carefully peel the tape away from each fingernail and discard.
There you have it! An easy egg-centric Easter basket manicure! Egg painting has never been so fashionable.
