I did my girlfriend’s nails last night- it was a fun and relaxing way to spend a friday night! I had the idea to do monarch butterfly wings. Which is kinda funny considering the first time I tried that technique was almost exactly one year ago (seen here). I guess the beginning of spring must make me think of butterflies!
Her base color is OPI Live.Love.Carnival.. Then we sponged some Butter London Snog (raspberry) on to the tips to give the color more dimension. The black was painted on with a striper brush and China Glaze Liquid Leather. We used Zoya Purity for white dots. We also added some flakies (Zoya Chloe) to add sparkle, but unfortunately the pics don’t show it. But in real like the flakies add a hint of magic to this springtime manicure. 🙂
I think Vanessa loved her nails! I sure do. Next time I’d like to try this with duochrome polishes- I bet it would mimic the iridescent effect that you see on bugs in nature.
Enjoy your weekend, talk soon ! 🙂
