If you’re looking for chic design for your nails this Easter, you’ll love this Faberge Egg nail art tutorial. You might have seen the Faberge Easter Egg nails I did in 2013, this year the Faberge egg design is even brighter and easier to execute! Bonus. So, if you have some spare time and ideally, some dotting tools, you’ll be sporting this look as you open your Easter treasures.
Just follow our step-by-step tutorial below. We recommend you read it once before you get started.
- Apply 2-4 coats of white nail polish on all nails. It should be completely opaque, without waiting for your polish to dry, proceed to the next step.
- Using the smallest size dotting tool, use gold polish to outline (with tiny, unconnected dots) all nails as pictured.
- Using the middle sized dotting tool, add gold dots with gold polish. These should be inside the gold outline pattern on all nails as pictured.
- Using the middle size dotting tool with red polish, add red dots on all nails as pictured. Then with the smallest size dotting tool, add red dots at the base of each finger.
- Using the smallest dotting tool with red and gold polish, add tiny flowers at the tip of each finger.
- Allow 15 minute for your design to dry, then apply 2 coats of clear top coat to seal and smooth the design.
Extra Tip #1: Avoid using polish that has begun to dry for dots, they will appear uneven and sit on surface like a stud.
Extra Tip #2: Thoroughly clean your dotting tools when changing colours. Also clean them if too much polish sticks/dries on them.

Even my husband who is usually indifferent to nail art was impressed: “This is a great design! I think it’s my favorite of all the designs you’ve done so far!” This is a pretty big compliment considering I’ve done hundreds of designs and my poor hubby has seen and discussed, each and every one of them.
So, are you in for some Faberge Eggs this year?
By the way, do you like the 2013 Faberge Easter Egg nails or the new 2015 version?
