21 Easy and Simple Easter Nail Art Designs
We simply can’t believe how fast this year is going! Can you believe it’s almost Easter already? Not that we’re complaining about the warmer weather, of course, but we’re sure our waistlines will soon start to complain about all that extra chocolate consumption. We’ve decided to console ourselves with fabulous nails, and right now, we’re taking a closer peek at easy and simple Easter nail art designs. Here are 21 of them that we think you’re going to love.
1. Pastel Design
Pastels and spring go perfectly together, just like … well, pastels and spring really. This one combines a lot of different looks in one, but you don’t need to go for them all. Pick your favorite, or have nine all the same with one feature nail? Or even one featured nail on each hand? The ball really is in your court, and with designs as cute as these on the market, it really is time to get creative!
2. Polka Dots + Bunnies
Bunnies are a great idea for Easter nails, and they’re so much easier to paint yourself than you first may have thought. Start with your base coat, making sure you’ve done the full works before hand. This means removing any excess polish from the last mani you had, and giving everything a good file and shape. Add that lilac pop on the top, and find a darker purple shade to create those polka dots. You will also need a dotting design for that, but we’ve managed to use the round end of a hair grip and creative some pretty fabulous designs, so don’t be disheartened if you don’t have what you need. After that, a white elliptical for the rabbits face, a couple of ears, and some pink and black added in to give the bunny more detail. Not as tough as you first thought at all, right?
3. Cute Matte Design
Matte nails are a really big deal right now, but don’t worry if you don’t have a bunch of matte shades on hand. Simply paint your nail design, like these cute bunny and carrot nails, and rather than using a glossy top coat, give it a matte top coat instead. You’ll have matte nails and you won’t have needed to go out and buy a bunch of new polishes!
4. Colorful Design for Long Nails
If you have longer nails, why not play around with a slightly more intricate design. We love the horizontal stripes on these nails, using nail foils to help separate and give it a good illuminating pop. Bunnies and chicks are the name of these game with these delights, but you could add easter egg designs, or any spring-like design you like really. How about daffodils? Daffodils always remind us of spring!
5. Flowers + Bunny Accent Nail
Green – how do you feel about it? Well, for spring-time, and particularly easter, we think it’s the perfect shade. Especially when you combine them with some beautiful daisies and a white bunny too. Green is the color most meant to symbolize new life, nature, energy, harmony, and fertility. If that doesn’t say “spring celebration”, we don’t know what does!
6. Purple Design
Lilac, lavender, mauve – purples – are a really great color, especially when it comes to easy and simple easter nail art designs, but you’ll definitely want to remember to use a base coat. Purple, and many other bright shades, have a habit of leaving a nasty staining behind. If you find you do suffer with this, grab yourself a lemon. Lemon juice contains natural bleaching agents, and it’ll help to get rid of some of that discoloration.
7. Pink Ombre Design
What a super-cool design! These easy and simple easter nail art designs use a watercolor-ombre effect, and that’s such a cool look for right now. You will want to use a really good white base coat underneath to help the pink on top to stand out. You will also want to make sure you have yourself a good quality white polish also. White tends to be the color that most streaks.
8. Cute Easter Chick Nails
Easter and chicks – they go great together, don’t they? You should definitely consider nails like this for your spring-time fun, especially if you want something cute and pastel. Easy to do, it’s a five-minute manic that we would definitely recommend.
9. Cute Carrot Design
If you don’t want bunnies, how about carrots? And speaking of carrots, we really fancy eating some juicy carrot cake right now! Anyway, cake and food aside, let’s pay some more attention to these super cute easy and simple easter nail art designs. A little triangle of orange gives you the main bulk of the carrot, and a few flicks with your thin brush and some green paint will give you the greenery you need to make it look authentic. Simple and cute – isn’t that what you were looking for?
10. White Design with an Accent Nail
An accent nail is a great way of livening up your nails, without the need to liven up all your nails. You could give your main color a quick touch-up at the base, and then re-paint or re-design just one featured or accent nail, giving it that spring / easter-touch. If you don’t have time for a full manicure, just give one nail the manicure treatment instead. It’ll take one tenth of the time … in theory anyway.
