Hello Loves. This is my last post before Easter, so I thought I would show you my official Easter mani for 2014. Believe it or not, this is also my first ever skittle! Crazy, right?
There is a lot going on with this one! I started with a skittle base using Couture Gel Nail Polish. The colors from left to right are Couture Spring Fling, Couture Come On Barbie!, Couture Glam Squad, Couture Big Spender, and Couture Tres Chic. The colors are slightly off due to the art, but each of the names above will link to the previous posts with swatch pictures. The only one I haven't shown you before is Spring Fling, but no worries. I have a swatch to share of that one too.
Spring Fling is a beautiful bright blue cream. It is very similar to Couture Milano but without the shimmer. As you can see, it was the perfect color to use in my Easter skittle.
Onto the Art: I used a small dotting tool and Couture Ooh La La French to add the dots to the thumb and middle nails. The chevrons on the index and pinkie nails are stamped in Mundo de Unas White using the chevron image from Bundle Monster 201.
Here's another shot of the complete mani where you can see the bunny a little better.
Bundle Monster 302, and it is stamped in Mundo de Unas Pink, Pastel Yellow and Green.
I applied all three stamping polishes to parts of the image at the same
time. I then carefully scraped and the result is this cute, multi
color stamp. The green did mix into the pink just a tad at the bottom
of the image, but it was easy enough to touch up with the pink and a
dotting tool. I then used a dotting tool to fill in the open flower
area in the stamp with Spring Fling and Tres Chic. The flower turned
out a little wonky, but that's ok with me. Flowers are rarely perfect in nature anyway. ;)
I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter! I'm looking forward to hunting Easter Eggs and watching my boys light up as they go through their baskets this year. Such joy for the little ones. This will be my youngest son's first chocolate bunny experience, and you can bet my camera and I will be ready!
If you don't celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!
