papillon

Just to clarify I am not a fan of butterflies, but I do like this nail design that stormed the web and is just about everywhere to be fund. I gave it a try today and I find it quite simple to make. But if it got you stuck somewhere just fire away with a question in your comment. I’ll be happy to help :-)

For base I used 060 Bloody Mary To Go from Catrice (one coat will do) and after it dried I tapped a thin brush first with yellow – LOOK by Bipa, nail tattoo liner; and then with orange – LOOK by Bipa again. It could also do the trick if you use a sponge and tap that so the brush doesn’t pick up the red polish.

In thenext step start drawing the curvy lines to outline the butterfly’s wing pattern – Jessica, DNA 2, black.

Colour the tip with black – Essence, Multi Dimension, 20 Fatal. With the dotter tool make some white dots over the black tip – Inglot, 38, white.

Please forgive my crapy photos today. The camera on my phone decided not to auto focus anymore so… :-( *sigh* hope I get it fixed somehow. Here’s the final outcome on all of the nails.
