With the growing profusion of flowers and Spring greenery comes the return of the butterflies. Today's manicure is an homage to these delicate winged creatures and their transformative beauty.
Using green Konad special polish, I stamped the three swirl patterns from image plate T30. The designs reminded me of fern leaves unfurling. I placed fimo butterflies from the Art Club Blue Denim wheel in random flight patterns on each nail. I made jeweled polka dots with green and blue pearls and rhinestones.
|Butterflies and buttercups!|
|Sarada took this picture of my right hand with white azaleas.|
|This red flower decided my butterfly nails needed a sprinkling of pollen.|
|Such a soft and cozy flower ring.|
|My friend, the Eastern Tent Caterpillar, is on the move.|
|A water view from the observation deck.|
|The reflection of the clouds in the water brings peace.|
Creole Splash is a bright robin's egg blue shade. While the polish is perfectly opaque in two coats, I found the formula difficult to control. It was on the thin side. With a little cleanup, you can still have a pretty manicure.
I hope you enjoyed my Butterfly Fantasia. Are you ladies catching sight of butterflies as you go about your day?
