Easter Egg-y Goodness!


Even though Easter is almost a month away, I figure there's never a wrong time for a pastel Easter Egg-y mani. For this one, I used a variety of brands. The pink is SinfulColors Easy Going, yellow is China Glaze Lemon Fizz, green is China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, blue is OPI What's With the Catitude and lavender is China Glaze Light as Air. I applied two coats of each color with my usual base of Mystic Nails (which I'm almost completely out of, *tear*). I actually won the three CG colors in a contest thrown by a friend for her youtube channel. I fell in love with their lovely smooth application right away. I've always been partial to pastels so these colors were quite a wonderful treat. Because I am also crazy for rainbows, I knew right away I had to seek out and find a pink and blue to compliment the other three, knowing that they were born to be skittled. After quite the extensive search, I decided on the SinfulColors and OPI selections. (You'd be surprised how difficult it was to find a nice, opaque baby pink and baby blue.) I'm really quite pleased with how this turned out and I hope you like it, too! I will DEFINITELY be repeating this mani and since my color choices are never dictated by seasons, I'll be as likely to do it in the middle of November as I am in the spring.
