Butterfly Wings

I hope you are enjoying your Monday! Today I have my creation for the Monday Nail Art Challenge on Polish-aholics Anonymous to show you. This week's theme is Butterfly.

This was my first time attempting butterfly wings. I loosely followed along with a tutorial by CutePolish. For my base, I used Barielle End of the Rainbow. I used three thin coats for opacity. With a nail art brush and Sinful Colors Black on Black, I painted on the black outlines. Finally, I used two different size dotting tools and Sinful Colors Snow Me White for the dots. I wish my lines had been a bit more straight, but I like how this turned out. Especially considering its the first time I've attempted this design.

Barielle Shades retail for $8 on their websiteSinful Colors retail for $2 at Walgreens (online/in store) and Target (in store). They're also available for $2.50 at Cherry Culture.


  1. OOh this is lovely! You chose such a nice colour to do them in!

  2. I love this and I love your blog! I hope you don't mind that I pinned this. It's so great I wanted to share it.

    1. Thank you! :D I never mind pinning, as long as its properly linked. :)

  3. Приветики! Хотелось бы открыть парикмахерскую, ищу любую полезную информацию для написания бизнес плана. Может у кого-то есть опыт в таком бизнесе? Сейчас большой выбор оборудования для парикмахерских и салонов красоты. Выбираю между компаниями Спа шоп, Venko, Kes laser, New face beauty, Укр мед гарант. В таком количестве информации самой разобраться тяжело( Скажите где дешево купить полотенца для парикмахерской?
