Nail art is all the rage these days! Well, at least if you have been following that trend on the internet. Some of the designs that people come up with are very intricate and require advanced skills. Don’t know anyone that skilled at painting both hands, (maybe most don’t or have someone to help paint the other hand?) so here are some cute beginner designs for Easter/Spring. Good luck!
A couple tips:
1. Make sure your base layer(s) are dry before adding details.
2. Use dotting tools, nail art pens, or thin detail brushes to add details. Some people create designs with brushes and acrylic paint instead of nail polish.
3. Depending on design you may have to let some portions dry before moving on to make sure you don’t smear or rub off tiny details.
4. Always apply a top coat to protect your design!
Chocolate Bunny or a bunny from the back:
The Ten Colorful Nails blog even added a tutorial image on how to paint this bunny:

These are cute and easy, look great in multiple colors, and have very simple eyes and ears.
Here is a tutorial on this kind of face:

How to paint your entire nail as a chick:
This is pretty simple! Nail all one color, then you just have to paint on the eyes, beak, and feet.
Here is a video from MissJJan showing this process and how to make Easter eggs:
Chick with egg shell:
This adds another layer to the design, a bit more intricate and interesting. It would be cute to have a mix of chicks – two shells, one shell half, no shell at all.
I think this is a great example of how to paint a sheep on your nail, something a little different but still very related to Easter!
Of course, for those who can have more advanced bunny painting skills:
Just look at that bunny!

Hope you guys give it a try, I know my human is going to. Silly though, because everyone knows that guinea pigs are far superior to rabbits!
