Easter Egg Nails

Hippity, hoppity, Easter is right around the corner! Here's a quick, little tutorial for Easter egg-inspired nails.

You will need:

  • painter's tape
  • pinking shears (or zig zag craft scissors)
  • Two different nail colors - I used Julep Jessica and Julep Renee
  • dotting tool


Step One:

Start off with painted, dry nails (wait several hours after painting.) Using your pinking shears or craft scissors cut your painter's tape into thin strips.
Step Two:

Place the strips on two or three of your nails.

Step Three:

Paint Renee completely over taped nails.

Step Four:

On your other nails, dab random dots of Renee with your dotting tool.

Step Six:
{not-pictured} Gently peel off your painter's tape, and apply top coat.  It will look like this:


Enjoy your festive nails! Happy Easter!!

PS - if you're not a Julep Maven yet, use the code "PENNY" to get your first box for only - you guessed it, a penny!
