For Easter, we always bring out our prettiest pastels and our brilliant whites regardless of what the weather is actually like outside. One other thing you should do to celebrate the holiday is paint your nails with an Easter theme. There are so many options from bunnies to chicks to eggs. And of course you can stick with your pastel color scheme. Not only will the manicures look adorable, the weather doesn’t have any impact on them. Rain, shine or even snow, they will still look cute.
