Here comes Patricia cottontail - Easter nails

Here comes Patricia cottontail hopping on to Kelly's nails...
Two days ago I painted my nails with Sinful Colors "nail junkie" (which I personally think should be renamed "Mermaid Glitter") and I was all excited about them until I was reminded that THIS SUNDAY is Easter, and Clementine would be pretty disappointed in me if I didn't do pink bunny nails.

I started with alternating colors China Glaze "for Audrey" and Sinful Colors "beautiful girl"
I added small white polka dots to my "beautiful girl" nails
then I had a slight laps in judgement and went a little ham on the details
when I remembered that I have two small children who could wake up any minute I removed my tiny bunnies frolicking through flowers and opted  for larger buns by painting half circles at my tips...
then adding cutie bun ears
using "beautiful girl" again I gave my buns pink cheeks and ears
with sinful colors nail art in black I gave her eyes, eyelashes, a nose, and then I outlined the whole head because I obviously hate myself.
added a flower because cute.
finished the rest of my buns and added a clear coat 
AND I WAS DONE

    1. Isn't it fun? I always feel better when I've got fancy fingers.

  3. Hahaha I laughed at your little comment about outlining the head because you hate yourself. I totally feel your pain! I've discovered it so much easier just painting the silhouette in black and then filling in the colors!

    1. I like my bun ears to be rounded at the top, so I start at the top and slowly lift my bush up as I pull towards the head. Gives it a nice tapered look.
