Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today? Can you believe in just one week it will be Easter? I kind of dislike when Easter and St. Patrick's Day fall so close to one another because everything seems so rushed. Especially when you decide to do an Easter Nail Art wheel and have about two days to plan out, draw a rough draft, and create 18 different designs.
That's right, I decided to do a nail art wheel! When I posted my St. Patrick's Day wheel on Instagram a few weeks ago, I realized how much I missed doing them. So since my followers said they liked my past wheels and wanted to see another, I decided to take a jump and create one for Easter!
Let's take a look!
Designs either are my own, re-creations of things I've done on my own nails in the past, or were inspired by pins from my Easter Nail Art Idea Pinterest board. Head on over to Pinterest if you want to see, because I'm not linking them all here.
Of course I have some favorites. I really am liking the yellow Easter Peep candy! After drawing out the peep using acrylic paints, I went over him using Sally Hansen Disco Ball. The sparkle gave it the look of the sugar that is on the real peeps. Without it, I really don't think he, or the purple Peep bunny, would look like peeps.
I absolutely love the crosses on Calvary nail which is to the left of the yellow peep. It's always been important to me to represent the true meaning of the holidays in my nail art. Easter is the most important holiday in the Christian faith, and if I didn't create a few designs representing Jesus and that He is risen, I wouldn't have been happy with myself. I think I might do the cross manicure on my own nails.
Another nail on the wheel which I think some people might be confused by is the one to the left of the hatched chick and the right of the peeking bunny on the peach base. This nail is the tomb of Christ with the stone rolled away. I'm rather proud of how it turned out. Sometimes you think of a nail design in your mind, then when you go to re-create it, it looks awful. This was not the case. If I were to re-create this design on my nail, I think I will try to create some light streaks coming out of the tomb....maybe?
To the right of the yellow Easter Peep, I'm super proud I was able to re-create this bunny butt design. I tried it last year on my own nails and it didn't work whatsoever. I was upset because I really liked this design but couldn't for the life of me figure it out. Sarah from 25_SweetPea created a YouTube tutorial this year for this design, and after following it, I was able to re-create the design! Now the question is, can I do it on my own nail?
And of course, another favorite is the jelly bean nail. Just look how bright and cute it is!
What do you think? Like this wheel? Any designs inspiring you?
If you re-create any of these designs, tag #TLCInspiredMani on Instagram so I can see!!!
Until next time, <3.
