Easter Egg Nail Art

Hi! My name is May and I'm the fashion/beauty blogger behind La Vie en May. I love experimenting with different products, styles and colors. My personal style is very feminine and simplistic; I live by the Leonardo Da Vinci quote, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."


With Easter coming soon, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create some fun nail art! The first thing I think of when someone says "Easter" is eggs. I remember running outside our backyard trying to find the hidden eggs my parents laid around. My sister and I would always compete with each other on who could find the most eggs. Once we were done, we would sit in the kitchen and bite into our delicious sweets (my mom always put mini chocolates in the eggs). Then, in the afternoon, we would paint our eggs and draw silly designs until all the eggs we had were painted.

Today's nail art is a tribute to eggs and all the fun Easter activities that use them. Easter eggs are really bright and colorful. I wanted to imitate that, so I chose light, pastel colors for the base of my nails.

Colors Used (from left to right):


After that, I used a small nail art brush and a dotting tool to make the designs. You can get them for fairly cheap on Amazon. It only costs me $1-2, but the shipping might take about 2 weeks. Buy the brush here and the dotting tool here.




I tried to keep the designs similar to what I used to draw on my eggs: polka dots, stripes, etc. What designs do you draw on your eggs?





Big thanks goes out to May for being a guest blogger here at 2justByou and sharing her fun Easter nail art. Be sure and visit her blog and/or follow on social media with the links above. =0)


Are you a fan of spring pastels?

Your Easter egg nail art is adorable! Cute idea. My nieces and nephew have an egg hunt Easter Sundays now. It's competitive!

Love the Easter inspired designs! The colours are stunning and I have already been out rocking pastel colours, even though we have had snow this week! :(
Certainly given me some inspiration!

It is a lot of fun - but would require a steadier hand and eye than I can give.
Hours of fun for the right age group though. Thank you.
