Easter Bunnies Nail Art – plus an appearance by my right hand!

Happy bunnies! πŸ™‚

This past weekend I said I was letting my nails grow a bit before summer sports start up. Well that was short-lived; they’ve been trimmed down already. I’m just not used to long nails on myself, so nubs it is!

Since Easter is just around the corner I decided to try drawing some Easter bunnies.

“Try” is the key word here because those are some freaky looking bunnies! But I still like them. πŸ™‚

Here are the products I used:

  • GOSH Baby Blue for the background;
  • OPI Alpine Snow for the heads and inner eyes;
  • Sinful Color Black on Black for the eyes, noses and mouths;
  • Joe Fresh Pink for the inner ears;
  • Essence Volumizing Lash Powder for the furry pinky.

Yes that is Essence Volumizing Lash Powder and not flocking powder for my pinky. I got the idea after seeing this picture on Facebook.

In case you’re wondering how the lash powder lasted here is my pinky 24 hours later, after many washing of the hands, sleeping, showering (in which I wash my hair), applying body lotion, putting products in my hair. All that to say that I did not put my pinky in a bubble, it was life as usual.

Not as fluffy, but it still lasted pretty well, huh?

I usually try to reproduce the same design on my right hand, but sometimes I just can’t. In those cases I’ll usually do something easier using the same colours. And most times it’s dots. So here is my right hand.

Back to my bunnies… I added some black dots to the eyes on my thumb and now I find it looks like a bear disguised as a rabbit, LOL!!!

So there you have it, my scary Easter bunnies. My husband even calls them Zombie Rabbits, hahahahaha!!! :-p

I’m not the best at drawing, obviously, but I think getting better tools would help. Right now I just use this cheap brush pack that I got at Walmart. What brushes do you use for your nail art? Feel free to leave links to products in the comments below.

  • Very cute mani. I am not so good at freehand nail art myself. So my nail art tools tend to be out of the stamping world when I want to do nail art. Today I did a water slide decal for the first time and it was quick and easy. Happy Easter!

    • Thank you Kelly! πŸ™‚
      I love stamping, I need to do it more often.
      I've never tried water slide decals before, I'll have to look into that.

  • That flocking is so cute! Man I wish I tried bunnies but I just couldn't bring myself to risk it! I always like my nail art like, a quarter way through and once I'm done, I'm always like "damn… I don't like this", haha.

    • Thanks Melissa! πŸ˜€
      My thing is that once I'm done I always try to fix what I don't like (uneven lines and circles and such) and I usually end up making it worse.
      My designs never come out like what I have in mind. I blame my tools, I have shitty brushes, lol! Seriously though, I do have shitty brushes, I need to order some good ones. I've been looking at the ones that @stylishnailart has on Instagram, I'm gona put an order tonight.
