Ello ello sweetpeas! Hope you're all keeping well & enjoying the weekend!
Its been a wee while since I've done a step by step nail art pictorial so I thought I'd rectify that today with some butterfly wing inspired nails :) I've seen this nail design many times & its one I've been itching to try. Not only is it super pretty but so easy to do as well!
For the base colour of my butterfly wing nails I used this simply stunning beauty by 2TrueCosmetics, shade 6 from their limited edition Crystal Collection which is a stunning burnt orange & fuchsia pink duo-chrome shimmer. The colour shift is so prominent & eye catching, I adore it!
Now to begin creating the design, I grabbed my nail art brush & some black polish & started off by drawing a quarter moon circle at the bottom left hand corner of the nail near the cuticle before adding on four curved lines from the quarter moon going about ¾ of the way down the nail...
Then using a black nail art pen I joined the four lines at the bottom to creating my curved edge wing shape...
Going back in with the black polish & brush I then filled in the remainder of the nail to the tips...
Then grabbing my white nail art pen, I added lots of little white dots to the black tips of the wing.
After a quick clean up job around the edges using a thin brush & some acetone, I finally applied a nice thick coat of topcoat to finish & thats it! Pretty butterfly wings ready to fly!
Hope you liked the butterfly nails & tutorial lovelies! Thanks as always for stopping by!
Lotsa love to ya!
