Easter NOTD

Easter eggs!
I had the idea of painting my nails each in a different pastel for Easter, with an accent nail of white with a yellow yolk in the center. Other than all of my blues, I really didn't have that many pastels, surprisingly. I did manage to scrounge up a few minis in possibly appropriate colors (the 99¢ ones from Sally's) so I gave it a try. It bothered me that the pink was too bright and the green too dark, compared to the others, and I totally screwed up the "yolk" never having tried dotting before. So this ended up being an idea that was better in theory than in practice. AND! When I went to take the photo I found that my husband had gone off with the camera so I only had my iPhone to take the pic. (pout) If taking a picture with my left hand using a camera is a challenge, you can only imagine how much more so it is with an iPhone! I think next year I will do one with a deep purple foil shade and a chocolate accent nail to stand in for Cadbury's...
