Week 7 and then we’re down to the last 3 themes of this Nail Challenge by Beautybulletin.com
Theme no. 7 was Animal Print – and instead of the traditional ‘leopard print or zebra stripes’ that one thinks of when you hear animal print – I decided to be adventurous and go with beautiful butterfly wings nail art design…
I have always.. and still.. love all things butterfly <3 <3 <3
I even sometimes thought of myself as a butterfly.. going through my teens and early twenties as an awkward caterpillar & only emerging from my cocoon in my late twenties, to become the fabulous butterfly I was always meant to be… 😉
So needless to say, I really really loved doing and wearing this look!
I started with black on the entire nail, then created the ovals in the design with the lighter orange polish (soft pearl) as a ‘base’ on top of the black.
I then continued with doing the little white dots on the tips of the nails. When the lighter orange ovals were completely dry, I painted 2 coats of the darker orange (sizzling flame) over them, leaving it to dry completely inbetween coats.
These were the polishes that I used:
1.) Ralo Cosmetics‘ no 54 (black)
2.) Pearl White by Top Shine
3.) Soft Pearl (light orange) & Sizzling Flame (dark orange) by Top Shine
