Would you rather paint eggs or your nails for Easter?

I don’t fancy myself an artist, so painting my nails is the probably the only time I get my “Picasso” on. So this year, in lieu of decorating Easter eggs, I think I might try a fun Easter-inspired manicure instead.

Personally, I love the idea with the baby chicks. (Did you see the little one in the egg? Too cute!) But I’m sure there are plenty more pastel looks out there that could be just right.
