Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today? I'm excited to be back posting with Amanda from Fashion Footing for our 13th round of Bestie Twin Nails! Can you believe we have been doing this feature for a year now?! I don't know where the time went! To mark our one year anniversary, we are holding a giveaway!!! Let's talk nails, then we'll talk giveaway!
For our manicure this time, we were inspired by this butterfly manicure by SensationalNails4U on Instagram. I had never seen a gradient monarch wing like that and I was just dying to attempt the design. I'm sure Amanda wasn't thrilled that I picked such an intricate manicure, but she was a good sport and agreed to it. Unlike me who refuses to do glitter placement....ever.
Let's take a look!
- NYC New York Color - Jacaranda Flower
- Zoya - Micky
- FingerPaints - Frosty Lemonade
- INM - Northern Lights
- Black and white stripers
I started off with a base coat of white polish. When it was dried, I sponged on my gradient using Jacaranda Flower, Micky, and Frosty Lemonade. When the colors looked how I wanted them, I added a top coat of INM Northern Lights because all gradients demand this gorgeous glitter.
I then went through with a black striper and added the monarch wings. I've done this design a few times before, but this is my all time favorite! I swear the others never turned out this well. I ended up keeping them on for about five days! I never keep manicures on that long, but I literally loved these!
What do you think? Fan of this manicure? Something you would try?
