Spring Challenge - Day 7 - Butterflies

Today's Spring challenge is butterfly nails! I was really excited about doing these, and knew what I was going to do. Last year some time (May or June I think) I started seeing these style nails all over Tumblr, and I was dying to try them. I have no idea why It's taken me til now to try these out.

Don't forget to check out Esme's Blog to see her buttflies :]

Base Coat: Nail RX - Stuck On You
Base Colour: Manhattan - Lemonade (my favourite yellow evvaaah)
Sponged colour: Deborah - Sunset cocktail
Black & White: Acrylic Paints
Top Coat: Models Own - 3 In 1

I always have isues with spacing dots and such. I just feel like I ruined the whole mani with these dots =/

Pre-dots :]
This is the picture I took last year that I was going to use as inspiration.
Next up on Friday is Easter Nails!

  4. I was thinking lately to do them as well, I tried them only once, at the very beggining of me doing nail art so it was a small disaster ;) I hope when I'll finally do them again it'll look as good as yours :)
