Simple Easter French Manicure!

A super quick tutorial for pastel Easter-themed nails that don’t take a whole lot of “expertise” to do.

You will need:

  • A basic nail color, preferably pastel colored and in a creme (non-shimmery) finish
  • 2 metallic acrylic paints or nail polishes
  • A nail dotting tool (below) or a used-up ball point pen (make sure there is no ink left on the tip)
  • A small flat paint brush

  • A Pearl Blue paint - “Gazing Ball”
  • A Metallic Bronze - “Copper”
