How to create Easter Chick Nails!

So if you don't know already, I'm going to be doing a series of easter nail tutorials. I'm keeping them all relatively simple as it gives you all a chance to re-create the designs yourself. The first easter nail art tutorial I did was Easter Bunny Nails, and since they were a huge success I've decided to do easter chick nails.

What you will need to create easter chick nails:

  • Yellow nail varnish - I used Ciate 'Big Yellow Taxi'
  • Blue nail varnish - I used O.P.I 'What's With The Cattitude'
  • White nail varnish - I used Orly 'White Out'
  • Orange nail varnish - I used 17 'Orange Soda'
  • Black nail varnish - I used Barry M 'Black'
  • Dotting tools

If you do not own dotting tools then have no fear as cocktail sticks or a dried up ball point pen will work just as well. 

If you would like to create easter chick nails all you have to do is follow my nice and easy steps!

1.) Apply the yellow nail varnish to your nails, excluding your ring finger nail. Apply the blue nail varnish to your ring finger nail.

2.) To create the cracked shell all you have to do is create small over-lapping triangles on the tips of your finger nails (excluding your ring finger nail) using the white nail varnish and a small dotting tool. It sounds confusing but trust me, it's easy peasy. 

3.) To create the chick's nose all you have to do is draw a small triangle in the centre of your nail (excluding your ring finger nail) using the orange nail varnish and a small dotting tool. 
To create the chick's eyes, dot 2 white dots using the white nail varnish and a medium dotting tool. Once the white dots are dry, apply a small black dot in the centre of each white dot, this can be done using the black nail varnish and a small dotting tool. 
On your ringer finger nail, apply several dots to your nail using the white nail varnish and a medium dotting tool.

And that's it! I hope you liked this tutorial and if you decide to give it a go, let me know! 

Thanks for reading!
