Happy Easter Egg Hunting!

3/27/2016



This year is the first on that I've tried decorating Easter eggs - I really didn't know what to do since I had no previous practice so I turned to a minimalistic design. One thing you might appreciate is the fact I've made the effort to blow out eggs out of egg shells. It's quite a tedious task but well worth it as you get festive decorations you can keep for how long you wish. I've simply pinned a hole at both ends of each egg with a sewing pin and spent an hour blowing out eggs. I broke one in the process - I'm sure I'll be better at it the next time.

Since I lacked any real material for decorating and coloring eggs, I resorted to my nail polish stash. China Glaze White On White was a perfect pure, crisp white polish to doodle with. Then it hit me - why stop at decorating eggs - why don't I try a simple yet effective Easter manicure?

I've used China Glaze Light As Air as a base which is the epitome of pastel chic. This subdued lilac with a pastel edge and maybe a little mix of gray in it is so pretty, no wonder it's the brand's classic pastel lilac. Then I simply dotted on China Glaze More To Explore - a bright peach creme borderline neon. Bleached neon maybe? Does that even exist? Whatever the case, it's stunning! I'm totally ready for an Easter egg hunt and I'm sure it's one of many more to come.

  • Ove godine sam po prvi put odlucila da se okusam u dekorisanju jaja za Uskrs - u sustini nisam znala sta da radim posto nisam imala praksu od ranije tako da sam igrala 'na sigurno' sa minimalistickim dizajnom. Oni medju vama koji inace ukrasavaju uskrsnja jaja ce mozda cijeniti sto sam odlucila da ispusem sadrzaj jaja iz ljuske - sigurno znate koliko tu ima posla. Prilicno je naporno i oduzima vremena ali mislim da vrijedi svog truda jer vam ostanu praznicne dekoracije koje mozete zadrzati dosta duze od kuhanih jaja. Jednostavno sam probusila svako jaje iglom za sivenje na svakom kraju i uposlila pluca tokom narednih sat vremena. Jedno sam jaje slucajno slomila ali sigurno cu biti bolja iduceg puta.
  • Posto pri ruci nisam imala namjensku boju za jaja/ hranu, oslonila sam se na kolekciju lakova za noke koja me nikada nije razocarala u ovakvim situacijama. China Glaze White On White je savrsena cisto bijela boja, idealna za saranje po jajima. Potom sam dobila ideju da i nokte ukrasim u uskrsnjem duhu.
  • Koristila sam China Glaze Light As Air kao bazu i uistinu je idealni pastelni lak, mnogo sik. Ova smirena lila nijansa sadrzi i mrvicu sivog podtona i izuzetno je lijepa - nije ni cudo sto je jedan od China Glaze klasika. Potom sam nacrtala tackice uz pomoc China Glaze More To Explore - upadna boja breskve koja je creme finisha a djeluje gotovo kao neonac. Izblijedjeli neonac, postoji li takvo nesto jer uklopio bi se u taj opis. U svakom slucaju je divan lak. Ja sam spremna za lov na uskrsnja jaja, a vi?

      I hope you had a lovely Easter! :)
