Happy Easter everyone!

With the 3-day weekend that came with this holiday, I still felt strapped for time. In no less than 11 hours, I'd have to be back at work (boo!).

In the spirit of the festival, I've been donning an Easter nail design, as with the last 2 years (here and here). This year, it's a skittle of Easter egg designs, shown below with 1 coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat.
From left:
Index - 3 coats Essie No Baggage Please, 1 coat OPI Shorts Story, white acrylic
Middle - 2 coats Darling Diva Polish Serendipity, 1 coat OPI Shorts Story, white acrylic
Ring - 2 coats Innisfree #123 Dawn Air, stripes using Essence Oh My Glitter, Isadora Wonder Nail 729 Marzipan, OPI Shorts Story, white acrylic dots
Pinky - Isadora Wonder Nail 738 Blue Lagoon and 729 Marzipan gradient, yellow and white acrylic paint, OPI Shorts Story (dots)

Bottle shot of the polishes involved:

The Isadora polishes were part of a generous gift from My Nail Polish Online. I'm pretty spoilt with Isadora polishes from her, and they are kept like treasure. Their creme formulas are some of the best, in my opinion.

The one I had a hard time with was Essie No Baggage Please. Essie, no more streaky polishes, please.

Keeping it short, that's all for this post. Enjoy your Easter holiday and be polished!

To Leave a Comment: I've noted that OnSugar's Comment feature has caused a few readers frustration by not accepting their input. While OnSugar works on rectifying it, I did a trial and error and found that comments don't get red-taped if you enter your information in the "Name" field without any space, ie. "ALacqueredAffair" instead of "A Lacquered Affair". I hope this works. As much as I want to, OnSugar doesn't allow the disabling of Captcha.
