Ugh, not those kind of leavings, gutterface, although I suppose I should have clarified – here I’m talking about Easter Bunny leavings. Totally different thing! Doing a manicure inspired by one is adorable and festive. The other suggests some latent scatological leanings that I may need to address. Still, although I’ll paint all manner of subject on my nails (the Guacamonut still ranks up there as a random favourite), I can guarantee you that shit will absolutely never be one of those things. Sorry if you were hoping for this blog to take a deeply dirty turn at some point.
Okay, back to this end-of-the-day Easter manicure. Not Your Mama’s Easter Grass from Smitten Polish (now Dreamland Lacquer) is the star of this show, acting as a very artificial-looking base for a smattering of pastel-hued, eggy dots. I love this polish in the sun, its gold glitter twinkling prettily with every shift of my hands, but Not Your Mama’s Easter Grass does its very best work in the shade, taking on a look not unlike a Pointillist painting. Or, going to the other end of the cultural spectrum, Floam. I love it, I love it, I love it, AND it just happens to look great alongside some sweet and simple nail art. The Bunny would approve – a more than fitting spot to park his bounty. 🙂
