Sugar High

My nails have been bare for a while now and I felt like jazzing them up with some pretty colours in time for Easter. After heading out to buy Easter Eggs for all of my nieces and nephews I was in the mood to indulge in some Easter fun while I had the chance! I didn’t want to go back down the super pastel/easter egg look as I’ve done them in the past (speckled nails and a pastel skittle mani!) so I pulled out some brighter shades for a spotty sugary look!

I started with a base of China Glaze ‘Sugar High’ and was mighty tempted to leave it be as the bright pink shade is so stunning by itself, but I couldn’t stop myself heading back in with my dotting tools to play around! I covered each nail in dots with essence ‘Grab This Hype’ from the ‘Yes, We Pop’ nail collection (check out this Cosmetic Cupcake post about that!) and I love how the bright teal looks against the pink! I then made the mistake of placing smaller dots on top of the teal with Hello Kitty ‘Lola Lilas’ which is a pale lavender toned pink shade – I wanted to add pastel into the mix but I think it’s too weak to stand against such a bright clash of shades.

I’m hoping to see some gorgeous Easter nail looks on Instagram this year, and indulge in some more delicious plain Cadbury mini-eggs too - they are the perfect sized treat for a non-chocolate lover like me! I love spending time with family over Easter but will be pretty busy this year, so I'm looking forward to seeing how other families celebrate this occasion on Instagram and Twitter.
What traditions do you have for Easter? What chocolate treat is your favourite for this occasion?
