I hope y’all aren’t tired of my @jen_of_all_trades manicure updates because I love posting them! Even though this isn’t the usual post (where I show you how to DIY something!) it still lends to creativity and inspiration! What better way to get inspired than to look at creative nail art, right?! I always get great ideas for all kinds of projects after browsing unique, brightly hue-ed manicure designs on Pinterest, and I’m sure I’m not the only girl who does this! For April I knew I wanted something Easter themed with my monthly manicure, and after creating this year’s bunny-centric Easter blog content I wanted to stay with the bunny theme!
I texted Jen a couple of photos to get our creative juices flowing. Our design is a shellac gel manicure, and Jen drew the half-moon on each nail, as well as the tiny bunny faces, by hand. One of the reasons I chose the half-moon on each nail is so that my manicure lasts longer! I first asked for a negative space at the base of each nail with last month’s mani (which I didn’t blog because it was so simple, but I absolutely loved it because it’s so my style). By leaving the base of the nail blank you can’t tell when the nail starts growing out. There’s nothing worse than a chic nail design having to be re-done or removed before it’s time because it’s growing out! My nails grow unusually fast (yes, I am lucky!), however Jen’s manicures typically last about 4 weeks for me, so it’s always such a shame when I must have the beautiful designs removed just because they’re growing out! Hence, my sneaky little trick of leaving a little shaped space at the base for the nail to grow so I can enjoy the manicure longer! I chose a rose-pink color for all the nails, except the ring fingers, because it’s such a pretty shade for Spring, and is an easy neutral to wear with anything. Each little bunny face is dark gray with white eyes and inner-ears, and a matching pink nose. Aren’t they the cutest thing?!
