NOTD: Bright Butterflies

Me and my nails have been an ongoing saga for the past week and a half.  I've liked what I've done with them but I'm turning into some sort of Goldilocks "ooooo they're not Oxblood" "Oxblood is too dark I need something summery" and now the hilarious thing is I've changed them to something bright and season appropriate and it's done nothing but rain to the point where as I haven't been able to take my nail photos outside like I've been doing recently #irony


I wanted to pick two bold shades to go with so I chose CND Shellac in Pink Bikini and Cerulean Sea along with Black Pool, lilac and silver foil, Lecenté Iridescent Glitter in Golden White and their S1 brush.

I applied Pink Bikini to my thumb, index finger and little finger.  I did contemplate doing something with these nails but then I reasoned that I wanted the blue nails to stand out.

Now I'll confess, the blue nails weren't exactly the effect I was going for as the foil just didn't stand out as much as I wanted.  I cured two layers of Cerulean Sea, crunched up a piece of lilac and a piece of silver foil and then patted it into the areas that I knew the butterfly was going to be in.  This was worth doing for when you look up close but I would pick something bolder if I did it again.  Anyway, I mixed a glitter paste of Lecenté glitter in golden white and Clearly Pink  and draw the wings of the butterfly.  Once that was cured I used the Lecenté S1 brush to paint the detail in black and their D1 brush for tiny detail on the edge of the wings.
