Mani Monday – Fishtail Braid for Easter with Dermelect “Fearless Beauty” Collection

It’s April 1st, aka April Fool’s Day, and it also happens to be Dyngus Day, which even though it’s celebrated in Cleveland, I had never heard of until the Anderson Cooper giggle-fest last year. So whether you’re pranking your friends, spraying girls with water, hitting boys with pussy willows, or trying to avoid a “case of the Mondays”, I hope your week is off to a good start.

This is just a quick Mani Monday. I celebrated Easter with my family yesterday and when I decided to wear a bright color-block dress, I knew I had to switch up my nail look from the pastel fishtail braid I showed you on Friday. Enter, the Fearless Beauty collection from Dermelect, created by Celebrity Manicurist Elle and Fear No Beauty’s Karie Frost.

I used Fearless (cobalt blue), Moxie (bright, not chalky, pepto pink), and Renegade (jade) to create the look. The colors paired perfectly with my dress, shown above when I wore it to NYFW last September.

Since we don’t have kids and Mom finally stopped hiding Easter baskets, after doing it for 30+ years, Easter is pretty laid back, just an early dinner. But this year we stopped by the famous Eggshelland for a visit. I’ve never been and hearing this was the last year, I had to go. The display uses over 20,000 enamel painted egg shells and it’s quite a sight. If you’re in the CLE, they’ll have it up until April 5th so head on over.

The Dermelect Fearless Beauty collection will be available this summer so consider this an early preview with a full review closer to launch.

If you celebrate Easter, did you create a special manicure? Does your city have any Easter displays like Eggshelland? Have you tried Dermelect nail polish? What do you think of the new summer shades?

    I LOVE that fishtail mani!! Glad you had a fun, chill day. I did a pastel and robin’s egg inspired mani. I loved it!

      I’m trying. But only with things that are simple. Free hand drawings with a nail art brush are beyond my comprehension. I look at Melissa from The Daily Nail with awe.

    Really cute nails.

    I’m mostly Polish & Ukrainian, but I’d never heard of Dyngus Day until I moved to Buffalo, NY where there’s a large Polish & Ukrainian community.

      I’m glad I’m not alone. A bunch of people went out to drink beer and dance to polka music yesterday. Such a unique, but fun, holiday.
