DIY Gold-Speckled Easter Egg Nails

Since Easter is coming up soon, I was collecting some images of inspiring egg decoration. I landed upon this, and began thinking…what about doing this to your nails? So I did. And it turned out amaaaaaazing. (Who doesn’t love chic gold leaf, right??!) Here’s how to do it too: You Need:

DIY Metallic-Tipped Nail Art: How to Extend the Life Of Any Manicure 2

DIY Easy Ombre Sherbet Nail Art

As a child I was always drawn to the rainbow sherbet at the ice cream shop in my little town…and loved to watch all the colors melt together in my tiny paper cup into a rainbow lava flow of epic proportions (read: icky orangey-brown).
