Monarch Nail Art :)

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing on this fine Saturday?  I meant to get a post up yesterday but it completely slipped my mind.  I'm kicking myself too because I have so many posts I need to share.  I have to get back into the blogging groove.  I feel like I've been saying that for 8 months now and keep failing at it.

Today I am sharing a manicure I did in mid-August.  See, I told you that I have a back log of manicures.  Anyways, in August we had a monarch butterfly release at work.  This year we got a new butterfly garden which attracts monarchs and is supposed to give them a safe place to reproduce since they are almost close to becoming endangered.  I love butterflies so when we got the garden I was rather excited.  It attracts so many neat looking butterflies, but the monarchs have to be my favorite.

Let's take a look at my manicure!

Colors Used:
  • FingerPaints - Paper Mache
  • FingerPaints - Tie Dye Tangerine
  • FingerPaints - Yellow Out Man
I love how these turned out!  I never wear orange or yellow polishes so I always forget how much I love how these colors look.  Tie Dye Tangerine and Yellow Out Man are a part of the FingerPaints Tie Dye Revolution collection that came out earlier in the summer.  It was a collection which consisted of five bright cream polishes and re-introduction of their awesome white polish.  I absolutely loved the colors in this collection because they were perfect colors which any nail artist could use.

For this manicure, I started off with a base coat of Paper Mache.  Once it was dried, I used Tie Dye Tangerine and Yellow Out Man and created a gradient.  These polishes are PERFECT for gradients!  They are so opaque that I literally only had to dab the sponge a few times.  Typically I have to paint the sponge twice and do two rounds of dabbing.  This time, only once!  Total plus!

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Should I do more orange and yellow manicures??

I highly recommend getting over to your Sally Beauty and picking up these polishes if they still have them!  Two of the stores I went to last week still had a display!!

Until next time, <3.
