So now Easter is on it's way, and to me Easter is:
Pastel colors, eggs, bunnies,...
I did this set on my mum, and I really like how the yellow and the purple shells came out.
Prior to filming I already removed the old design with a 100/180 grit file.
Then I prime her nails with NSI superbond nail primer.
I brush on a thin coat of IBD builder gel clear as a base, and let that cure for 2 minutes.
ThenI brush a thin layer of clear gel on the free edge (DO NOT CURE)
Then I start patting on a neon yellow glitter.
This glitter is from Viva la nails.
With a clean brush I start forming a smile line, and let that cure for 2 minutes
On the ring finger I brush on a thin layer of clear gel and start placing purple crushed shells
to resemble egg shells
I let that cure only for a minute.
The next step is the same on all nails (one at a time)
Brush on a thin layer of gel and start building your thickness and strength.
Let each nail cure for at least 3 minutes.
With none acetone nail polish remover and a lint free wipe I take away the tacky layer.
Then file the sidewalls and free edge.
With white-ish acrylic powder I formed the bunny.
First the head, then the ears, and when that's dry I put some eyes on and a pink nose.
I put on Orly Glosser as a topcoat, let that dry and then massage some cuticle oil into the cuticles and surrounding skin.
Pictures and done.
I hope you enjoy this simple Easter nail art.
