Hello ladies,

My tips are aflutter! Butterflies comprised of fimo found a shimmering habitat to display their blue wings. They rest atop Revlon Sweet Nothings in Rendez-blue. The purple base color is the last mini polish of the Borghese Serena collection I have to share with you. 

Revlon Rendez-blue is from the Sweet Nothings trio I purchased at Ulta earlier in the year. I have a number of polishes bought before I began painted Lady fingers. I decided to start a category called untried and true to classify these beauties from collections past. While I am still committed to creating looks with newly released colors, I want to uncover the possibilities of my whole collection.  

Another butterfly from the Museum of Natural Sciences. I have such an affinity for the blue wings. 

The purple mini from the Borghese Serena collection applied easily and was opaque in two coats. The color reminds me of shimmering grape jam. While Revlon Rendez-blue wasn't the simplest color to use for a funky french, I loved how the blue tinted white appeared like icy azalea petals. Over the Borghese mini, Rendez-blue looks fushia with a bit of snow. This color would make a beautiful layering note. 

The blue butterflies are much thinner on the nail than pictures can tell. I didn't have any issues with their wings catching on fabrics. I painted the french and added the butterfly to the wet polish, proceeding nail by nail until completion. No glue was required. I used one coat of CND Air Dry to seal the look. 

Happy painting, ladies!
