Easter is just a few days away. Nail artist Tamsin Salfrais shows how to make three easy Easter nail designs that you can mix and match or wear all together.

Concentric Cross

This simple design is based on a cross pattern. Salfrais chose a purple and gold palette for the Easter holiday, but you can choose any color scheme providing you have three shades of the color.

What you will need:

  • Nude nail polish
  • Three nail stripers in a light, medium, and dark shade
  • Glitter nail striper
  • Top coat
