Have you seen these cool speckled nail polishes from Illamasqua? I think they are really cool and they remind me of mini eggs!
Basically I really like them but they are £14.50 a bottle. I’m sure they’re great quality but my meagre student budget does not stretch to that right now.
I’m fairly sure by this time next year Barry M will have come out with a more wallet friendly version so I’ll stick it out. In the meantime I made my own imitation mini egg nails.
Just picked two similar colours in different shades and speckled the darker over the lighter. I went for a chocolatey look, but I reckon this would be really nice with pastels.
I finished it up with a matte topcoat, which gives it a more authentic texture and I’m ready for the Easter weekend.

They’re not quite right, and not as cool as the Illamasqua version, but for a first attempt they’re not bad.
