Mani Monday: Pastel Nails with a Twist

Spring nails

Spring is officially here, and that means one thing: it’s time to break out those pastels. My favorite way to rock them? With a manicure, of course.

For a new take on pastel nails, I’m looking to a spring tradition of mine – dyeing eggs for the holidays. Check out a few egg patterns here and then follow the steps below to create your own egg-inspired manicure.

What You’ll Need:

The How-To:

  1. Paint each nail a different pastel color with two coats of polish.
  2. Apply a clear top coat and let dry completely.
  3. Using the Nail Art Pen, draw different designs and patterns on each nail. (Polka dots and squiggly lines are my favorites.)
  4. Finish with another application of the clear top coat.
  5. Show them off!
