nail art: neon dip-dyed easter eggs
I get a daily fix of visual soul food from the amazing design blog Oh Joy!, and this guest post by Courtney of Merriment did not disappoint. Her neon dip-dyed Easter eggs are so fresh and fun. I couldn’t wait to bring this modern, spring-y look to my nails.

I began with my go-to white polish, Sally Hansen xTreme Wear in White On. I wanted to use Scotch tape to get clean lines with the colors, so I let my white nails dry overnight to avoid smudging or pulling up the white polish with tape. If you want to freehand your colors, you can move along more quickly.
I used Scotch tape to section off different egg-inspired patterns on each nail and began adding the colors.
I particularly like the gradient dip-dyed look you get by placing two shades of the same color next to each other, like I did on my pointer finger and pinkie.
I love white nail polish, and using it here really makes the bright colors pop. Stay tuned for more Easter nail art ideas throughout the rest of the week!
