Have some fun with nail art this spring...

Fiona Ward

Easter's officially around the corner! And while most of us won't be celebrating with our families like we normally would, there's still plenty of ways you can get into the spirit this year.

If you're a beauty lover, why not get creative with a fun Easter manicure? From simple designs to full-blown nail art, there's nothing like looking down at your hands to see a pretty pop of pastel.

Speckled Easter egg nails

Simple but effective, you can mimic the look of Cadbury's Mini Eggs with a few simple tools - and it always looks adorable.

Start with a pastel shade (or try stripes like Dannii), and then you can use a small nail art brush to make the speckles - it doesn't have to be too perfect! Finish with a matte topcoat for that frosted look.

How cute are these? You'll need a very steady hand and a fine brush to give these a whirl, or perhaps you'll leave it to the professionals! But either way, we love the creamy colour story of these painted tips.

We love these simple-yet-effective designs, which can be achieved using a tiny dotting tool. Mix up your colours depending on your mood - for more of an Easter-themed look, stick to your pastels.

You can also use a tooth pick or even the end of a hair pin, and use a pale pink shade as your base.
