I'm going to warn you my attempt did not turn out the greatest, but with a little more practice and a different paint brush I think I'll improve.
In the tutorial they used yellow and orange as a base (like a Monarch butterfly), but I wanted to put my own spin on it so I used pink and purple.
Here are the polishes I used (you know I have to show you this first. It's how I roll. lol)
From left to right: LA Colors Tease, NYC Purple Pizzazz, Sinful Colors Black on Black, and Wet 'n' Wild Fast Dry The Yellow Years ( I know I don't normally name my colors, but I think this is good practice and will try my best to do so from now on.)
After a base of Tease I sponged on Purple Pizzazz.
I then painted on my wings with Black on Black and used a dotting tool to add dots to the tip of the wings in The Yellow Years.
Since I'm right handed and have NO control with my left hand I decided to stamp on my right hand. I used a Cheeky and Red Angel plate.
I stamped using Konad Yellow and Konad Black and the glitter I added to both hands is Sally Hansen Xtreme Rockstar Pink.
This is what I came up with for my left hand:
I've linked both Lace and Lacquers and the Nail-Art-101 so don't forget to check them both out. The Nail-Art-101 has a GREAT tutorial for the butterfly wings. Also, don't forget to check out my blog list there are some amazing nail artists blogging out there.
Thanks for reading. See you soon. :p
