I tried a new technique I’ve never tried before; foiling. But it wasn’t the foiling that most nail techs are doing at the moment… I have literally incorporated the foil wrapper from my Creme Egg. Hey, you can’t say it’s not authentic!
This was such a simple technique, I feel bad even calling it a technique!
This was my process;
The hardest part of this one was getting the chocolate colour!
I used 5 colours in the end and painted about 12 coats! But I think we got there in the end. I just used the same colour I finally settled on, and added a tiny bit of black to darken it.
I painted the chocolate colour onto the nail until it was as thick as I wanted it. I then went in with a fine nail art brush and carefully painted the Creme Egg pattern – just google a Creme Egg for inspiration!
I then just dropped the white gel on and allowed it to run and create an authentic drip like shape and did the same with my orange gel on top!
I chose two glitter nails to compliment the Creme Egg nails.
You could also use plain gel, or a metallic colour to match the foil. It is completely up to you!
I selected a red as close to the Creme Egg red as I could get and also a lovely yellow gold glitter gel to match the yellow colour on the Creme Egg wrapper.
I really love this set of Easter Nails!
