Thursday's Talons: Fantasy Butterflies

Currently listening to: The Call by Backstreet Boys

Good morning girls!

Today I'd like to show you a manicure which was inspired by a beautiful design I saw on Mini Nail Blog:


 I didn't take pictures of the different stages but I plan to recreate this manicure on my own nails whenever I can and I'll take more photos then, if you're interested.


The polishes I used for the background were Kiko 255, H&M Fashionista, Saffron London 62 and 17 Midnight Sapphire.


My first step was to paint my nails using the magenta polish by Saffron London.  Once that was dry, I  sponged Midnight Sapphire on the bottom corner of each nail and Fashionista on the top corner.  I then realised Fashionista didn't really show up so I added a layer of Kiko 255 ;-)


I added the butterflies using Konad plate m36 and Barry M Silver Foil.

 

My final step was to add a coat of Essence Night in Vegas, my very first flakie!


What do you think girls?  Do you love this manicure as much as I do?!

Bye for now,
Laura

  3. Lovely! I didn't used the butterfly's from the stamping plate because at all my designs I found it kind of kitschy. But with the colorful background on your nails I love it...now I think to try it myself! Thanks for sharing, this is an inspiration for me!
