There are two types of people in this world: Those who love the buildup to Easter and everything that comes with it, and those who find it a little tedious. If you fall into the former category, you’ll be glad to know that there are plenty of opportunities to show your love for eggs, bunnies and all things cute—even when it comes to your nails. In fact, when it comes to getting ready for the day, designing Easter-themed nails is one of the simplest ways of showing your support for the season. After all, everyone will see your hands! So whether you plan to spend time at home or head out with friends during this special time of year, here are some ideas for fantastic Easter nails 2022 that are perfect no matter what you have planned.
The Basics of Easter Nails Art
To get started with your Easter nail art, you’ll need a few supplies. You might want to invest in a stencil, some tape, a dotting tool (if you want to go free hand), some dotting tools, and some nail polish. You’ll also want to have a styrofoam block (or a plate if you don’t have a block) handy. When it comes to Easter, the most important thing to keep in mind is the colour palette. You’ll want to stick to a pastel colour scheme, as it’s the easiest way to tie all of your Easter nail art together. You can choose one or two colours to use for the majority of your Easter nails, or you can make one nail a different colour. The choice is completely up to you!
Easter Egg Nails
If there is one thing that is synonymous with Easter, it has to be the egg. The perfect Easter nail art for anyone who loves the egg hunt, Easter eggs are easy to create using dotting tools and a few different colours of nail polish. For this design, you can choose to either paint the entire nail or leave a portion without any polish. You can easily create a stippled effect by placing your dotting tool in the bottle of polish and tapping it a few times.
To create the egg, you’ll want to start by painting your thumb, index, and pinky fingers one colour, and the middle two a different shade. Once your base coat is dry, you can use the darker shade to create a large circle on the middle of your ring finger’s nail. Once you’re happy with the size of the circle, add a smaller circle in the centre of the larger one using the lighter shade of polish.
Basket of Flowers Nails
If you love the look of seasonal flowers and want to show them off on your Easter nails, this design is perfect. Start by painting your nails a light pink colour, and then add some white flowers using a dotting tool. You can choose to either make your nail one big flower or make several smaller ones. This design is simple, yet it’s sure to turn some heads!
Bunny Ears Nails
If you want to include an adorable Easter bunny on your nails, this design is the way to go. Paint each nail a different shade of pink, and then create two small bunny ears on your ring finger’s nail, leaving the rest of the nail unpainted. To finish off this design, use a black nail art pen to add some whiskers and a nose to your bunny ears.
Bow Tie Nails
If you prefer a slightly more grown up design, why not create a bow tie on your Easter nails? If you love the idea of a bow tie, but aren’t sure where to start, this design is fairly simple. To create the bow tie, use one shade of pink for the bow and a different shade of pink for the tie. You can either paint the bow on your ring finger’s nail and the tie on your pinky finger’s nail, or paint one nail in two different shades.
Don’t forget the rings!
Another way to incorporate Easter into your nails is to add some adorable egg rings. This design can be done with any colour scheme you want, so it’s easy to personalize based on your favourite Easter colours. For this design, you can choose to either paint the entire nail or leave a portion unpainted. To create this design, start by painting two rings on your ring finger’s nail, leaving the rest unpainted. Once your base coat is dry, use a dotting tool to add some polka dots to your rings. To finish off this design, add a few bunny ears on your pinky nail.
