Can you believe it's almost Easter? Holy moly, is this year going quickly. Now if only it would stop freaking snowing...

Anyway, with Easter around the corner, I wanted to try a non-nail-art-but-still-festive mani. Mostly because I was a bit lazy, this week. Err...I mean, busy. Haha!



Indoor light. Weirdly, the pink glitter bits looks more red here.

To start, I did two coats of Paper Mache, Boho Blues, and Highlight of my Summer. When that was dry, I used a flat nail art brush to scoop up glitter bits from I'm a Go Glitter, clustering around the base of my nail. Then, I picked out the smaller, bright pink pieces, and placed them randomly on the rest of each feature nail.

I think the glitter looks a little bit like flowers, which make this mani both spring-y AND Easter-y. #nailedit

Outdoor light. Please forgive my blurry pointer finger. I don't know what happened there. Haha!

I have to say that I was pretty surprised with how Boho Blues went on. The first coat was sooooo thin, and super streaky. I was positive that it would need three coats, which drives me absolutely batty. But, I was delighted to see that after a second coat, it was totally opaque! I'm not saying it's magic, but it's pretty darn close because every other streaky polish I have requires three coats. So if you picked up Boho Blues from the Road Trip collection, don't freak out the first time you use it. I promise that you'll only need two coats.

You're welcome. Haha!

What did your nails look like, this week? Do you have some Easter nail art going on? Link up and show off! :)

Oddly, I can't stop staring at your pinky. Highlight of my Summer looks awesome, and appropriate for Spring. Yay for floral non-floral glitter!
I did just get a bunch of neon colors from ChickPickPolish, as you've inspired me to go bright on my nails (probably gonna be the brightest part of me, given how this derptastic week has been so far). So thanks!

I know what you are saying, we are suppose to get snow tomorrow.Ugh. It's the Winter that never ends. That green is really pretty. I love China Glaze's colors, but it chips so fast on me. I went to Sally's today because I heard that
"For Audrey" is being discontinued (I've been wanting that color for a long time), but when I looked at the top was all seperated. There were 2 left & I shook them, but I decided to not get it. I do have CG on today, but I've redone it everyday.

Hi Jennie! This is my first time linking up, I found you through Kimberly G. above.

I love the glitter clusters on your white nails. That's such a pretty look, that I hope to try out soon. Lovely spring colors, so perfect for the season!
