Easter Chick Nail Art with Tutorial

Hello all,

You might have seen last week that I did the first of two Easter designs with my Strawberry Tart Bunnies.  This week I have Easter Chicks with a sparkly speckled egg effect.

I have used mainly Models Own nail polishes to create my design.  The base colour is Lemon Meringue and the orange for the chick's beak is Fuzzy Peach.  Both of these are from the Ice Cream Sundae collection.  For the sparkly speckled egg effect on my other nails I have used Disco Inferno from the Mirrorball Collection.
I have created a step by step picture guide to show you how I created this look, and hopefully it's easy for you to follow if you want to have a go yourself.

 Step one - After using a base coat to protect your nails, paint them with two coats of your base colour, in my case Lemon Meringue.
Step two - This is where you will start to create the shell for you little chick to sit in.  Using a dotting tool create a zig-zag line across your ring finger nail in white.  You do not need to wait for this to dry before moving on to step three.
Step three - Fill in the rest of the shell for your chick using your white polish (I have used Sally Hansen White On)
Step four - Add a small orange triangle above your shell and two black dots for your chick's eyes.
You could finish your design here if you wanted to, add more chicks on your other nails or like me, add on some glitter to the other nails.  I used Disco Inferno because of the colours in the glitter adding to the chick theme with gold, orange and green flecks.
I will be putting together a step by step of my Easter Bunny nails as well, so keep an eye out for that if you are interested x


  1. Thanks for the tutorial; it's really simple and I like that aspect of it.

    1. You're welcome - I thought i'd try a different way to put step by step photos and think this works well! Will have to do some more like this I think.

  2. oh my gosh this is such a cute design!
    I love painting my nails too!I might have to try this! :)
