Easter Fun - Nail Art for Adults and Kids

by Martha Scully

It's time for a little Easter fun with the kids! We took a little break this morning and made our nails Easter pretty! This is a great way to spend some time with the girls, and they'll have something fun to show their friends after!

We went with some chick faces for adult nails, and Easter eggs for kids! All it takes is a few colours of nail polish, a couple of toothpicks, and some patience!

Chick Nails Materials :

  • Yellow nail polish
  • Orange nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Black nail polish
  • Clear top coat
  • Nail polish remover
  • Cotton balls
  • Paper towels​

Easter Chick Nail Art Steps

  1. Lay down your paper towel to protect your work surface
  2. Remove any old nail polish from your nails using cotton balls
  3. Paint each nail yellow as the base coat - use one to two coats, wait to dry
  4. Place a dot about 1/3 from the tip of your nail, in the middle
  5. Use a toothpick to spread the dot into a triangle to make the beak, tip of the triangle pointing to the tip of your nail
  6. Put a generous gob of white nail polish on the paper towel
  7. Use one end of the toothpick to make two white dots for the eyes, let dry
  8. Put a generous gob of black nail polish on the paper towel
  9. Use the other end of the toothpick to make two smaller black dots on top of the white
  10. Once the nails are completely dry , apply a coat of clear nail polish to protect them (if the colour are not completely dry at this step, they may run)

Easter Egg Nails Materials:

  • Pastel nail polishes (we used yellow and green)
  • White nail polish (we used nail art paint with a thin brush)
  • Clear top coat
  • Nail polish remover
  • Cotton balls
  • Paper Towels

Easter Egg Nail Art Steps :

  1. Lay down your paper towel to protect your work surface
  2. Remove any old nail polish from your nails using cotton balls
  3. Paint each nail a base colour for the main colour - we used yellow and green on alternating fingers - use one to two coats, wait to dry
  4. Using the thin brush, draw out your pattern in white on each nail, "decorating" your Easter egg, or use a toothpick
  5. Put a generous gob of white nail polish on the paper towel
  6. Use one end of the toothpick to make dots
  7. Once the nails are completely dry , apply a coat of clear nail polish to protect them (if the colour are not completely dry at this step, they may run)
