Tie Dye Nail Art

Electric Nights for Tie Dye Nail ArtTie dye nail art — another fun summery theme! I’ve only made tie dye shirts a few times and it was with my local parks and rec program as kid.  Brings back the good memories of all-day kickball! For a hand-painted design, this was really easy, so read on to see how I did it.

Easter Nail Art!

Easter weekend! This holiday means a lot more about family than religion for me.  My extended family always gathered (still does, I just don’t live near my family anymore) on Easter Sunday for brunch.  My sweet Grandpa had me going for years about seeing the Easter Bunny in the backyard.  Plus my mom always went all out with Easter decorations and egg hunts.   I just had a conversation with my mom the other day about what I brat I was on a couple Easter basket hunts when I was little.  Ahem….anyway, here’s an extra bonus Easter picture for all you dog lovers!Golden Retriever Easter

I made a base for my Easter nail art out three untried polishes and I liked all of them!  Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Extreme Wear Babe Blue is a really beautiful light blue with the barest of shimmers in the bottle that unfortunately does not translate applied to the nail.  Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Jokers Wild is a nicely formulated cool peach polish.  Essie Mint Candy Apple is just an amazing light teal color.  And lastly, the pink on my pinky is Sally Hansen Extreme Wear Giant Peach.

For my nail art, I did try to make a bunny. I did a practice bunny on my thumb and it looked not so lovely, but I still went ahead with the main accent nail bunny and really screwed the pooch on it. I took it off and went with basic spring and Easter egg inspired designs.

After I was done I went back to finish up my practice bunny to see if I could salvage it. And…I think I did a decent job of it, bot the greatest freehand in the world, but it will do.  Hope you enjoy your Easter weekend!
