NOTD - Easter Egg nails!

Hello, seeing as it's Good Friday I thought I'd have some fun with Easter egg nails, and it was fun! Sadly I don't think the mani will last until Sunday as it's already chipped and I have gardening planned for tomorrow, but I'll think of something else to wear for Sunday and Monday!

 Colours used from index to pinky: Barry M Yellow, Rimmel Fruities I Love lasting Finish Apricot, China Glaze Agent Lavender, Collection 2000 Hot Looks Mint Mojo. White dots and stripes in 17 Nail Xtras French Tip Whitener. The embellishments are from a nail art kit I bought in Poundland (and are very tempting to pick off...)
On the thumbs I used Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream plus their pink crackle (which apparently is going to become very hard to find - and I haven't seen the blue one in three different Boots now). I thought it might be interesting to see how to get different effects, so on the left thumb I did a thin coat, and on the right a much thicker one. You can see how the thin coat gives a finer shatter effect, while the thicker one gives big chunks and looks, to me anyway, like a pink and blue giraffe (no, I haven't been drinking...)

Anyway, that's me for now! I hope wherever you are you have a nice Easter and the sun comes out for you. We've had glorious weather here and I hope it lasts - I can take better pictures in the sunlight!
