Hello lovelies,

 

It's finally the end of the month and it's time for another Nailvengers Assemble! post. This month's theme is of course Easter Nail Art and we hope to give you some inspiration.

 

I'll be joined by Alice (One Nail To Rule Them All), Allie (Brit Nails) and Amelia (xAmeliax). Sadly, Sammy (The Nailasaurus) won't be able to join this month so I'll be patiently waiting for her creation for the next month's challenge ;)

 

This is my Easter nail art...

Nailvengers Assemble! - Easter Nail Art | Czech Easter Eggs inspired

 

As you might know, I originally come from Czech Republic where there is a strong tradition of decorating Easter eggs with different techniques. This time I got inspired by beautiful 'Vnorovske kraslice' (Vnorovske Easter eggs) that are traditionally red, white, black and orange/yellow. I've never actually tried to do these but I know that they are made by covering parts/patterns with wax and then coloured. Then another pattern is painted with wax and then coloured with another colour and so on. Once all colours are done the wax is removed and this beautiful multi-coloured egg is done.

 

There are many more techniques of creating traditional Czech Easter eggs like these wax decorated 'madeira' eggs I do but that's probably for another time :)

For this manicure I have used:

OPI Red Hot Rio (reviewed here)

OPI Alpine Snow

Zoya Arizona (reviewed here)

A England Camelot

Seche Vite Topcoat

 

Admittedly, this manicure took a long time to create so I didn't bother with doing my other hand but I still wore it for three days because I loved how intricate and pretty the nails looked.

 

I have entered this nail art into Nail Polish Canada's challenge and it would be great if you would give me your vote. Please vote for them here.

Hello lovelies,

 

For a while I've been wanting to do my own version of pink galaxy nails. I was inspired by Eva aka Coweless who started to use other colours for her galaxy nails than the traditional black, purple and blue and I loved her designs! Well here is my stab at it and I've created a tutorial as well so you can create your own galaxy nails :)

Hope you liked it :) I know this isn't an original idea but I love how galaxy nails look! And they are so easy to do as well!

 

Have a lovely weekend and come back tomorrow for a very special surprise!
