I love Easter. Who doesn’t love Easter?! If there’s chocolate involved I’m happy.
Yet this year, one of this things that really caught my eye is just how beautiful mini eggs are. Yes they taste divine but they are also so pleasing to look at. The colours reflect some of my favourite pastel shades and they almost look like something nature has produced: perfectly shaped pebbles on a beach; something found in the nest of an eastern bluebird (They lay the most beautiful eggs, you should definitely have a google). Once removed from their packaging they don’t scream commercial chocolate and there is no sign that they were ever mass produced in a factory setting. They are like little pearls. I cannot get enough of the little sprinkling of speckles on each and every egg either. So clean cut and beautiful!
The colours reminded me not only of one of my favourite nail varnish at the moment, L’oreal Colour Riche in 104 Beige Countess, but also the shades that are on my wish list at the moment.
- 851 Les Blancs Nouvelle Vague from the L’oreal Colour Riche range
- Porchester Square Gel effect polish by Nails inc.
- Parka Perfecy by Essie (Ballet Slippers in also gorgeous)
- 403 Palais Royal by Dior (I wish!)
I was inspired to take some photos, displaying both the beauty of the Beige Countess L’oreal nail varnish and the little chocolate eggs. Here are a few of my favourite shots 🙂
I thought I’d also attach some photos of our family easter cake, it is a tradition that we make this every year. Seeing as we decorate it with mini eggs, I thought these photos were appropriate!
What colours and shades are you loving this easter? Do you have any special Easter traditions? I hope everyone is having a great day!
