Dipped Easter Egg Nail Art with OPI Sheer Tints!

Press Sample

Do you remember dipping your hardboiled Easter eggs into colored dye when you were younger? How about dipping one half in one color, flipping it over and dipping the other half in a different color? I was inspired by that fun childhood memory and tried to recreate it on my nails using some of the new OPI Sheer Tints (and some added sparkle!). 

  • First, I painted two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. It's a white cream, a great base for the Sheer Tints, and it was my "egg" base. 
  • Once it was completely dry, I grabbed a makeup sponge and did a gradient with OPI Don't Violet Me Down and OPI I Can Teal You Like Me.
  • I had to sponge many times to get it opaque enough but it was worth it. I even used the OPI Glitter Off on my skin around the nails for easier gradient cleanup!
  • Once I was happy with the gradient, I added one coat of OPI Desperately Seeking Sequins from the Spotlight On Glitter Collection
  • Seche Vite was used as top coat.

What do you think of this look? I wore it for the weekend and really loved it! I'm having a fun time coming up with new ideas for wearing the Sheer Tints! Thanks so much for reading!

  1. I still love colouring Easter eggs, even though I am way too old to and don't have any kids to do it with. I want to do gradient eggs with glitter now just like these!

  3. I love your design! You did a great job with the tints. I normally don't like bar glitter but I am liking that glitter, especially over light colors.
