Happy Easter & My Nails are Wearing... Essie & OPI

Ah it's Easter, possibly my favourite holiday. The one time of the year you can wear bunny ears and eat your body weight in chocolate and no one frowns upon it. I am a somewhat recently reformed chocoholic so I am looking forward to indulging in some of that sweet goodness that I think can be like a drug.. Yummy, I want chocolate just writing this! 

I decided today, after seeing so many fabulous looking Easter manis I would attempt one. I went simple and chose dots - I do not have a steady hand at all so It had to be easy for me. I am really happy with how they came out though.

I applied one coat of Essie First Base Base Coat. Then I used Essie 743 Nice is Nice, which is a gorgeous pastel purple and alternated with Essie French Affair which is a pale, pastel pink. Over this I then applied a coat of OPI RapiDry Top Coat. For the dots I used OPI Alpine Snow and a skewer as an improvisation for a dotting tool (I need to get some nail art tools). Finally I applied another coat of RapiDry to set everything.

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter (if you celebrate it) and a great long weekend. Hopefully the Easter Bunny will treat everyone well and you have enough chocolate to have a chocolate induced coma (joking!).
