Foil Easter Eggs

I made some polish to look like foil Easter eggs in a rainbow of colors. My secret ingredient was Color Club What A Drag, a super foil-y metallic silver. I made each color with half What A Drag and half bright color.

Pick a rainbow of bright colors. The What a Drag will lighten up whatever you add it to, so choose bolder colors rather than pastels.

Thumb (it’s a beautiful glittery fushia made of Essie Fishnet Stockings and WaD, but WordPress is giving me uploading issues) .

Index: Half Essie Capri, a creme orange, and WaD.

Middle: 1/3 Fishnet Stockings (creme red), 1/3 OPI Need Sunglasses? (creme yellow)  mixed to make bright carmine red, then added an equal amount of WaD.

Ring: Half Need Sunglasses, and WaD.

Pinkie: Half Color Club Yell-Oh, neon yellow green, and WaD.

Thumb: Half New York Amaranth, a creme green, and WaD.

Index: Half China Glaze Calypso Blue,  deep blue creme, and WaD.

Middle: Half China Glaze Shower Together, a creme teal green, and WaD.

Ring: Half China Glaze Bermuda Breakaway, a blue/purple creme and WaD.

Pinkie: Half OPI Siberian Nights, a deep purple creme, and WaD.

I couldn’t resist adding some nail art! The jewels with the dots of WaD around them were supposed to be flowers, but they came out a little more abstract than I intended. From there, I painted a rabbit on the ring finger and a carrot on the pinkie. The eyes are tiny rhinestones and the nose is pink polish. The mouth and whiskers were done with my nail art pen.

Now you see why I never show nail art on my left hand. I put on some jewels and tried to make flowery sort of shapes but I got more of a rather messy abstract design.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
