Fly like a Butterfly!

Hey everyone! :) I'd like to show you a new nail art that I've been wanting to do. This is my first attempt which took a few tries to get it to my approved passing. :P

I used Essence Surferama from their Surfer Babe Collection in 2 coats. It's a berry creme that applies easily and dries quick. :) 

Now here's my first attempt at doing a monarch butterfly that I was inspired by lacquerized. For this part I only used a black nail art brush, white nail polish which I used a dotting tool to place the dots. It isn't perfect but it's close for a first try :)

Hope you all enjoyed & happy polishing!


  1. nail crazy: Thank you! :) I love it and I can't wait to try different color combinations in the wing :D

  2. Surferama is great on its own but really cute nail art. I wouldn't have guessed it was a first try.

  3. As a person who loves butterflies, I've been meaning to try this nail design too. Looks really lovely. :)

  4. purplegreenpanda: Thank you! And yeah it took me a bit to get it, I had to do a couple of nails twice or even three times until I was satisfied! :D

    rins: I love these butterflies too. I used to have them in my classroom when I was in elementary school :P Thank you! ^^
