NOTD: Monarch Butterfly

I’ve loved this nail art design since I read Deez Nailz' tutorial, I had to try it myself! I wasn’t confident enough to create consistent designs on all of my nails (didn’t even ATTEMPT painting on my dominant hand’s nails!) so I just went with the ring finger. I’m pleased with the result!

I started off with two layers of Zoya’s Lulu and added sparkle by applying BB Couture Pina Colada. The result was a light shimmery peach shade.

Next time I will go for a brighter colour and try to attempt doing all of my nails… if I am successful there will be pictures :)

  1. Wow I love this! I've been meaning to do a butterfly mani, because there are a set of colors I want to use. I'll definitely be looking this up to do it. Thanks :)

  2. It looks good I wanted to try it too after seeing it but it does seem hard but yours came out really nice

  3. its beautiful - and it *is* hard to do it on your non dominant hand. love the shimmery base you used!

  4. I used a thin brish for the black lines, and this was my first time attempting this kind of nail art. If I can do it, anyone can! Thanks for the comments, and thanks for the inspiration Dee!

  5. WOW! Good job. I've seen the monarch design a few times, but it looks so intimidating. Yours came out great =]
