Hello nail art lovers!

This post was meant to be a nail art idea for Easter but having in mind that happy Easter days are gone now, I guess it is just a colorful egg stamped nail design :) The look is fun and easy to get, it uses the makeup sponge and the stamping technique on two accent nails only.

First, pain your middle and ring fingers white and the others pink
My pink color is Models Own Pink Veneer, a lovely gel formula.
The white color I used is the usual suspect: Essie Blanc. It serves as a base for the colorful design which will be sponged on top.

Then, add other colors with a makeup sponge
Simply get a makeup sponge, add a few drops of different nail color on it and press it on your white base. Repeating this step twice is quite enough to get full coverage of the white color.

Then, add a stamped image in white
I used an Easter theme image as I planned this as an Easter manicure. This image is from the 2013 Holiday Collection from Bundle Monster BM-H10.

Last, add a glitter top coat
I like adding a top coat with some kind of effect over sponged designs as I find this smooths out the color and may conceal some harsh edges, if any. I added a thin layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust.

Last year’s Easter I used a similar approach for my Easter nail design, check it out if you enjoy the idea:¬†http://nailcentric.net/easter-nails-konad/
