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.

Easter bunny nails

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 this simple-yet-effective design, which can be achieved using a tiny dotting tool. You could even use a toothpick or the end of a hairpin.

Mix up your colours depending on your mood - but for an Easter-themed look, stick to pastels.

Add a spring twist to your French mani by lining the tips of your nails in a creamy pastel shade like lilac - and for a modern look, keep that line super fine. Try using a tiny detail brush.
