How to create Easter Bunny Nails!

Easter is fast approaching as you will all know, you literally cannot get away from piles of easter eggs, so thought I would do a couple of easter nail art designs. My first offering is easter bunny nails, they're cute, fairly simple to do and best of all, this design contains mini carrots (if you want to witness the mini carrots for yourself, scroll down to the bottom of this post).

What you will need to create easter bunny nails:
  • Mint green nail varnish (I used E.L.F 'Mint Green')
  • White nail varnish (I used Orly 'White Out')
  • Black nail varnish (I used Barry M 'Black')
  • Pink nail varnish (I used Essie 'Lovie Dovie')
  • Orange nail art paint
  • Green nail art paint
  • Dotting tools

If you do not own nail art paints then you could used nail varnish instead. If you do not own dotting tools then you could use cocktail sticks or a dried up ball point pen. 

If you would like to create easter bunny nails, all you have to do is follow my nice and easy steps.

1.) Apply the mint green nail varnish to your nails. You may need more than one coat depending on what your nail varnish is like. 

2.) For the bunny heads:
- Using a large dotting tool and the white nail varnish, create a large dot (head) in the centre of each nail (excluding your ring finger nail). 
- Using a small dotting tool and the white nail varnish, create 2 lines (ears) on top of each large dot (head). 

3.) For the bunny faces:
- Inside of the ears: Use a small dotting tool and the pink nail varnish.
- Nose: Use a small dotting tool and the pink nail varnish.
- Eyes: Use a small dotting tool and the black nail varnish.
- Mouth: Use a small dotting tool and the black nail varnish. The mouth looks like an upside capital 't'. (T)

4.) For the carrots:
- On your ring finger nail, create 5 small carrot shapes using a small dotting tool and the orange nail art paint.
- Add a bit of greenery on top of each carrot by using a small dotting tool and the green nail art paint. 

5.) And we're done! At this stage you can add a top coat to protect the design.

I hope you like my easter bunny nails!

Thank you for reading!

*Apologies for the lighting, I painted my nails at 8pm hence the darkness. Photographs were also taken on my iphone, and when it's dark, the quality isn't going to be top notch.
