Easter Bunny Nails

Hey everyone! I have some nails just in time for Easter! I decided to paint bunnies, of course. They’re the cutest. I could have gone for baby chicks too… hmm. What about… bunny chicks? Never…nevermind. That sounds like a genetic experiment gone wrong.

Anyway, here are my nails! I wanted to use some pastels for easy freehand nail art, and bunnies are the way to go!

I decided to vary the character roles of these bunnies. Maybe these bunnies are a family? I went for a very content bunny, a cute bug-eyed bunny, a bespectacled bunny, and a baby bunny (mostly because my pinky nail is so small). The base for this mani is the lovely “Aubergine Cream” by Chloe & Bella Cosmetics. I love pastel lavenders for spring!

Next, I used a toothpick to dot some mint polka dots on the nail. I like small, delicate polka dots and toothpicks are perfect for achieving these. I painted the bunny heads with a few swipes of a nail polish brush, to paint a white semi-circle at the tip of the nail. The noses and mouths are painted with a paint brush and a rosy baby pink nail polish, and the insides of the ears are too. The eyes are dotted with a dotting tool, a toothpick, or the end of a paintbrush, depending on their size. The little glasses and whiskers were painted with grey polish and a thin art brush too. These nails are very simple! It’s like drawing like a kid again, except it’s in smaller scale at the end of your nail.

Make sure to add topcoat over the nail to seal the design in. I should also stress that painting with a brush and cleaning it with acetone is very drying and can make the bristles stiff. I like to dip my brush in some cuticle or coconut oil and rub it into the bristles between colours, to keep the brush soft and malleable. Just a tip! I originally learned this from Simply Nailogical!

I hope you all liked these cute nails! I definitely loved wearing them. Happy Easter to those who celebrate! Go find some eggs and eat some chocolate!

Happy painting!
