Celebrity nail artist Jin Soon Choi's eggshell nail art.

Despite what other tutorials may say, you don't, in fact, need eggs to create the look of eggshell nail art. (Yes, it's a thing! For Easter!) 

Instead, celebrity nail artist Jin Soon Choi has created a version that mimics the crushed look using white and coloured polishes alone—and as you can see, it's SO pretty.

Here's the step-by-step, with no actual eggs harmed in process.

Eggshell Nail Art Tutorial

1. File and shape your nails into a long squoval shape, and apply a base coat. (Jin used her own JINsoon Power Coat.)

2. Apply two coats of a white nail polish, such as JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Kookie White.

3. Using a thin brush, draw intersecting lines on top of the white in a colour of your choice. Here, Jin started with a lime yellow (JINsoon x Tila March Nail Lacquer in Charme) on the pinky finger.
