Oh, look! Butterfly~

Hello Readers! Here with me today, is a nail art that's been playing in my head for the past few weeks and I've finally sat down and get it done yesterday. (haha!) Inspired by one of God's magnificent creature; butterfly! So, off I went searching for ideas and what did I find? Too many beautiful butterflies! I was so inspired, ideas rushed in like running water! It took me awhile to finally decide on Richmond Birdwing Butterfly as the inspiration. But there were so many that I wanted to do! So, I guess you could expect to see more of butterfly inspired nail art on my blog in times to come! ;)

I thought it was a little pity that due to my small nail plates I couldn't add more details to this design. Lots of trials and errors with these, I'm glad they finally turn out presentable. Yeah, its a little fuzzy here and there, but that was fine with me since butterfly's wings aren't smooth and are fuzzy =P 

Have a great weekend! ♥

  2. Those look absolutely great, I have to say! And you're so right, butterfly wings are a little fuzzy, and not smooth like we use to draw them, so it makes the mani even more close to reality! The colors look wonderful together, and well... too bad I can't freehand because I'd love to do those in my own nails.

    1. Oh thank you!! :D Oh, sure you can! If I can do it, so can you! ;D I think I spent the whole afternoon on these =P But I guess the key thing was the black striper. I prepared the gradient base first, use the brush to create some random brush strokes and then the black striper to create the guidelines before filling up a little with the art brush. The first one will always be hard, but after you get the hang of it they just flow~ :D

  6. Amazing. I did butterfly nail art once, but it was from the fairly conventional tutorial everyone uses. :P It's great to see another take on butterfly nail art. Hehe.

    1. Hi, Elizabeth! Glad you took the time to check out my blog :D Haha, well... that's because I used a different butterfly as inspiration :) I'm sure there are many more other butterflies to be used as inspiration--a little breakaway from the usual monarch butterfly inspired ones (not that they are bad!) And thank you for the compliment :D
