Hello, hello! I hope everyone is enjoying all these light, pastel colors for the season because I’ve got more coming. Although, my “pastel” polishes border closer to bright than pastel.I wasn’t going to do anything for Easter at first, but as soon as I got my UberChic stamping plate last week, I knew I had to. How could I not do something with the adorable bunny stamps? Almost as soon as I finished my tulip mani, I was pulling out possible color combinations. Most of my polishes aren’t very light though, so it’s not like I had a ton to choose from. But I made my choices, and surprisingly, never changed my mind. Sometimes you’ve just got to go with your gut.
What I Used:
- Base Coat: Orly – Bonder
- 1st Color: Sally Hansen Complete Salon – Stellar Style
- 2nd Color: Bundle Monster – Bam! White
- 3rd Color: Bundle Monster – Mistletoe Magic
- 4th Color: Painted Polish – Stamped in Greenery 2.0
- 5th Color: Esmaltes de Kelly – Felinda
- Top Coat: Glisten & Glow – Top Coat
- Bundle Monster mini lotus mat
- Bundle Monster Poli-Peel cuticle protector
- UberChic Welcome Spring stamping plate
- squishy stamper & scraper
- lint roller sheet
- acetone nail polish remover
- Twinkled T clean up brush, size #2
I started off with base coat and three coats of Sally Hansen – Stellar Style. And i’m extremely torn between how I feel about this pink. This polish probably has the most streaky formula out of any other color that I own. But I’m torn between whether or not I like it because I absolutely love the color. In my opinion, it is the PERFECT pink for my skin color. Since it seems to be everything I want in a pink, maybe I just have to prepare myself for a struggle every time I want to use it.
I went straight into stamping the bunnies next. Since i knew I just wanted them to be a simple white, I didn’t think about it much. And of course, I forgot the liquid latex for the first two nails. Luckily, for whatever reason, stamped polish easily comes off the skin with tape. So after some quick cleanup and Poli-Peel around my pinky nail, I was done with the bunnies.
Next, I wanted to add multi-colored Easter eggs. Even though I hadn’t tried this kind of stamping before, I was sure it would work. I chose to do every egg in just one color in order to distinguish them better. And after splotching random colors on the stamp, scraping, and applying, I think it worked great. I’m actually surprised at how well that works. You would think the colors would just all blend in to one ugly mess. There’s some bald spots on my eggs, but you can barely tell. I wasn’t really in the mood to keep retrying the stamp for such tiny details.
And that was it! Two different stamps. I was originally thinking of being goofy (since Easter falls on April Fools Day) and throwing in a duck somewhere. But, I was too scared to mess it up and have to restart. The base color was too much of a hassle. So here’s my relatively easy Easter mani. I hope you think it’s as adorable as I do!
Stay safe with those pranks this April Fools, and enjoy your week
Well I didn’t have very many chips this week, but I still picked at my thumb nails like crazy. I pretty much made them round again. Even though I’ve really been trying to shape my nails in to square. Oh well, no one looks at my thumb nails right? I should just be happy that the only nails I picked at were my thumbs.
