I have been working on some seasonal nail art for my post in Nail Art Gallery from Nails Magazine. (www.nailsmag.com)

I made some Easter Egg Skittle nails and didn’t want to loose the work on my thumb because it is bling-y! (of course)6_marked

So, I left that one on and did a fun and classy looking design on the rest of them.

This is actually a easy nail art design. I think the colors make them look very classy.

A run through of this design for you.

I started with a base coat and then placed painters tape (YUP, painters tape) at an angle to match the angle of my free edge extension. (I have them filed at a 45 degree angle just to add some interest in my nails)

I then painted two coats of Sinful Colors “Easy Going” on my nails.

Once those were good and dry, I peeled away the painters tape to revel my non-lacquered free edges.

I then painted the tips with Essie’s “Mint Candy Apple.”3_marked

Let that dry really well and apply silver striping tape to divide the two colors.4_marked

Apply top coat to seal in the tape and give shine to the nails. And your good to go.

I painted the middle finger on my right hand solidly with “Mint Candy Apple” and applied shiny bling to the nails as a accent on the other hand. I thought his evened out the hands nicely.6_marked
