I ❤ Cadbury Creme Eggs!

What's your favourite easter treat?  Mine would have to be Cadbury Creme Eggs. Especially, the cadbury creme egg McFlurry at McDonalds.. guilty pleasure. I practically mark the date on my calendar when these delicious treats start showing up in stores.

So.. while contemplating what easter nails I was going to do, they were the first thing that came to mind.

This took a LONG time! lol And it is my first ever manicure with words on it, which was the trickiest part.. but I'm so so pleased with how this mani turned out in the end. I was also happy and surprised that I found two old polishes that matched the creme eggs colors (red and purple).

Red is Sally Hansen New Lengths Red Ambition
Purple is Rimmel London 60seconds Night Before
Silver lining is Sally Hansen New Lengths City Lights
Yellow is Sally Hansen Insta Dri Lightening
I also used white acrylic paint for the "egg splat" before using the yellow.

And, just for your reading pleasure, PimpThatSnack.com did The Creme de la Creme Egg
