Easter nails: Cadbury Creme Egg manicure

So I am kind of obsessed with Cadbury Creme Eggs. They just taste so darn good and come Easter time I head straight for the store to get my yearly fix! Now that I'm older and wiser slightly more health conscious I limit myself to one bag of creme eggs only. As you know, I love doing themed/inspired/festive manicures and I have wanted to do a manicure inspired by my favourite Easter eggs since I started my blog. The problem was I always ate them all before I could do my mani! This year I restrained myself so here is my Cadbury Creme Egg manicure for you all!

Apologies in advance for the picture spam. I couldn't resist - I really enjoyed this mani! It might be a bit much for some but hey nail art to me should be FUN!



I used 2 coats of Models Own Pure Purple (a gorgeous dark purple creme gifted to me from Christina!) onto half of each nail. I alternated the positioning of the purple on each nail and then filled in the rest of each nail with OPI Red My Fortune Cookie using a nail art brush. I then used Kiss nail art paint striper in white to freehand a vertical line where the 2 colours met.

For the splatter/yolk, I dropped a large blob (such a technical word HAHA) of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky onto the middle of each nail and dragged it out quickly using a small dotting tool. I then added some random dots with the dotting tool around the splat.


Pure Purple is such a gorgeous shade however it's a blurple so it was ridiculously hard trying to capture the colour properly. It's a dark purple but isn't as dark as it looks in my pics.





MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...


What do you think? Does it remind you of Creme Eggs?

Thanks for looking as always! Don't forget to enter my Hello Kitty Cosmetics giveaway here!

  16. Cadbury eggs are my favorite sweet ever! Although they don't sell them in bags like that in America, only singly or in packs of four. And the foil is different! They're so delicious. I eat an embarrassing amount between February and April.

  31. Oh no! You "stole" my Easter manicure!!!! :P I have done one also inspired in my favourite Easter Eggs of all time... Creme Eggs by Cadbury!!!!!!!! I travelled recently and I was able to find those eggs in one of the portuguese islands (Madeira). I was very sad to only buy 3 but they were somewhat expensive. I really like your manicure and the eggs! Have a nice Easter!
