I paired my favorite peach polish, Essie A Crewed Interest, with these clear Jamberry Paint Me Pastel wraps. I’ve tried this Easter egg look many of years with hand painted nail art and it’s been a fail each time. That’s why I love Jamberry, perfect nail art each time, and quickly!

Nailed It: Spring Break Mani – Rose Quartz Getaway

Even though I’m not going on spring break I can put myself there mentally with this mani! ¬†I picked out this wrap to wear for Easter because the color of the year rose quartz and serenity are the prefect easter colors. ¬†Once I put it on I was like this is kinda perfect with the palm print since everyone is on spring break!

The wrap I used is Rose Quartz Getaway from Jamberry with an accent nail in Essie Apres Chic.  To prep I used this Avon Senses Cherry Blossom Hand Cream to help with cuticles.  Then I made sure the the nails were clean before applying Avon Ridge Filling Base Coat before applying my wrap.

As perfect as this mani is for spring break I’m wearing it for Easter. ¬†What I love is I put it on Palm Sunday and it looks just as good come Easter Sunday! ¬†And that week inbetween when I look down at my nails I feel like I’m on a mini spring break.

Nailed It: Julep Alicia

What a better mani Monday then our own namesake!  Julep Alicia!

Julep Alicia

Julep Alicia

I have this thing with names, I like to get people polish in their name even if its not a color they’d wear. ¬†It’s like a collectors piece. ¬†Alicia, while you know the name, it’s not really as common as you’d think, so when I saw Julep had an Alicia I was ALL OVER IT. ¬†Except it’s been sold out for-ev-ver! ¬†The re-released in the new formula a few months ago and I snatched it up. ¬†At first I was like, eh, it will probably not look that great on me, but I want it for my vanity, so it sat in it’s box all pretty and new. ¬†Then for Easter I decided to bust out this shade. ¬†I was going to do a fun Easter mani but I also had a wedding and business trip so I needed just an easy shade to get me through. ¬†Julep Alicia it is!

Once I applied Julep Alicia I was immediately in love with my namesake. ¬†In just two coats it’s full coverage cream with the shiniest finish with NO topcoat! ¬†It’s super super bright and unique but doesn’t come across as gaudy. ¬†Julep Alicia is the word. ¬†If I was ultimately going to create a polish that represented me I wouldn’t change a thing!

I’ve definitely done quite a few looks suitable for the Easter holiday. ¬†I love pastels in the spring, kind of surprised how little I’ve featured them. ¬†Hopefully these got you inspired to create your perfect Easter mani. ¬†If you need even more inspiration check out my Nailed It board on Pinterest! ¬†Any thoughts on what I should do this Easter!?! ¬†A lot depends on which Easter Dress I pick! ¬†Be sure to check back for my next post on Easter dresses!

Easter Nails and Hamptons Collection Preview

I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do for my Easter mani this year but I knew I wanted a pastel… but I planned on wearing white and cobalt so I needed something to coordinate with the crisp color scheme… then I remembered Kristen got me a cobalt blue crackle for Christmas! ¬†Perfect! ¬†I decided to layer it over a pastel pink… this mark. tickled pink to be exact!

Crackles may not still be “in” but I’m still enjoying them! ¬†They’re a quick and easy way to create an interesting nail “design”. ¬†Plus I thought it looked like a cracked hard boiled easter egg so totally¬†themed out!!
