Our 7 Favourite Gel Manicure Ideas this Easter

  • 5 min read

Easter is just around the corner and there is lots to get egg-cited about (including some Easter inspired gel manicure ideas)!

We know we're excited for delicious chocolate, time off work to relax, spending time with family and friends to mention a few things. We figured why not add to that list and give you some Easter inspired manicures that will have you feeling extra festive and fun!

Mint to Be Gel Nail Polish

When you think of Easter you think pastel colours. Our Gel Nail Polish shade Mint to Be is the perfect pastel green to wear when celebrating Easter. It’ll match all that fun Easter bunny decor and it’s one of those colours that looks good on every skin tone (even when that summer tan is fading). Give Mint to Be a go and you'll love how cute you feel!

Eggsactly Gel Nail Polish

Our special shade Eggsactly is an amazing Easter shade. Keeping with the pastel tones we associate with Easter, Eggsactly is a baby blue Gel Nail Polish with little flecks of coloured glitter to give a speckled egg effect. This Gel Polish reminds us of the mini eggs you get gifted for Easter, making it a no brainer polish to celebrate with. It’s fun, festive and Easter approved!
