I thought I'd do a little 'how to' nail art post today as Ive finally found some time to sit down, relax and do some pretty nail art for myself!
I love love love painting my nails and trying out new designs and patterns, and seeing as though Easter is literally just around the corner, what better than to paint some pretty little bunnies for my finger tips. Okay, so i wouldn't call this a tutorial as i haven't taken pictures of every little detail of the design but hopefully you'll get the gist of things!
(Click on the pictures to make them bigger!)
Step 1. Paint your nails with a pretty pastel colour, for this design i chose Essie- Neo Whimsical, 2 coats and leave to dry (I chose to do bunnies on each nails except the ring finger which i put glitter on.)
Step 2. Taking a white nail polish, create a half circle shape on the top of your nail (leave enough room for your bunny ears!!)
Step 3. Using a smaller brush or by flattening the white nail polish brush, make 2 smaller lines towards your cuticles to form the ears. Leave to dry before adding the next details.
Step 4. Once the nail is dry, use a pink colour to make a small like inside the ears and two small dots for the cheeks (i used the polish i used for the background- Essie: Neo Whimsical)
Step 5. Using a black polish and a dotting tool (or a toothpick), make two little dots closer together and above the cheeks, these give the bunny some eyes!
Step 6. Next, make a very small upside down 'T' to form the nose and mouth using the black varnish. Then, using the black again, make 2 or 3 lines on each side of your rabbits cheeks for cute little whiskers (you can create these lines using a toothpick and a dotting technique, making the dots overlap to make a smooth looking line).
Step 7. Finish with a coat of your favourite top coat and leave to dry.
And there you have your cute little bunny rabbits on your finger nails!
