Easter Pastel Skittle Manicure

Confession:  I hate cartoony-caricature type of nail art.  You will most likely never ever see me with a bunny on my nails for Easter, snowmen for Christmas or turkey for Thanksgiving.  I just don’t find it age or work appropriate, completely a personal preference – not meant to throw shade on anyone who loves it.  So although I don’t have decorated Easter eggs or a bunny on my nails, I do love the pastel palette usually found in most Easter baskets and in the ensembles of church attendees.  I swear Easter is the only time men can get away with wearing a light blue suit…and since I live in the South now, I always see at least one man in head to toe pastel every.single.year!  Cracks me up I tell ya!

Anywhoo, after giving myself an oil manicure to revive my nails and cuticles, I decided to try a Easter pastel skittle manicure (one where each finger is a different color) using Easter colors.  Above is a listing of the polish name on each finger beginning with the thumb – Revlon Peachy, Essie Navigate Her, OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook, Ulta Cream of the Crop and Revlon Lily.  This was a great way for me to use several polishes from my collection in one manicure too!

I decided to top it off with a bit of a gold gradient.  Although I loved it without anything extra, I felt a bit like my clothes didn’t match.  While it looked great to my eyes because I’ve been so into my nails and following trends lately (thanks to all the nailistas on Instagram), I felt to the public eye it would look like I was 10 years old and had broken into my mother’s stash!  So, I felt the gold kind’ve tied it together. In my head that made sense anyway! lol.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful day celebrating, Happy Resurrection Day!
