I'M BACK with my (extremely belated) Easter nails!

Hi my friends! I know, I am the worst blogger EVER... I got the flu, came back for one little post, and then disappeared again. This time it was for a much better reason - I went to Europe! I was there traveling for about a week and a half and saw five countries in that short period of time, which left me no time for blogging (plus I didn't have my computer haha). It was an amazing trip! I'm so glad to be home and getting back into the swing of things again.

I have several manis from a few weeks ago that I'm gonna show you guys over the next couple days, and hopefully by that time I'll be caught up enough with my life that I'll have time to sit down and do some serious nail artin'. I miss it!

The nails I have to show y'all today are the nails I wore for Easter!

The mani I originally planned for Easter turned out to be a disaster for several reasons, so these didn't even get done until Easter evening. I was hanging out with my family and didn't want to spend too much time on my nails, but I still wanted them to look cute. Pastel polka dot skittles seemed like the perfect solution!

I used all Lime Crime polishes for this design. I've had the whole set since December but just now used them for the first time. A travesty, because they are amazing. The only way I can describe them is neon pastels!

I started with a base of two coats of (from thumb to pinkie) Once in a Blue Mousse, Parfait Day, Pastel-chio, Lavendairy, and Peaches <3 Cream. They all applied flawlessly.

After my base colors were down I just used a small dotting tool to add the dots. The only color I used for the dots that I hadn't used for the bases was the ivory color on my thumb, Milky Ways.

These were super easy but I really liked them! I can't wait to use these colors like a million more times. What do y'all think?
