The One With the Butterfly Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!   Happy Monday to you all!  Should happy and Monday go in the same sentence?  My weekend didn't last long enough.  I did absolutely nothing.  Seriously had a "me" weekend where I lounged around.  Honestly, wish I had more days like that, probably could use at least two more then I'll be ready to go back to work.  Alas, I will be at work by the time this post is published running around not knowing my name.

Today's manicure is the annual butterfly manicure.  Last year I switched it up and did purple butterfly nails to raise awareness for Epidermolysis Bullosa.  This is a disease which commonly occurs in children.  Their skin is super fragile and sensitive and they can develop blisters easily.  Those children with this disease are known as butterfly children, because they are fragile like butterflies.  Last year, my good friend Meagan's friend Taylor passed away from this disease, giving me the idea for the post.

This year I wanted to do that again, so I turned yesterday's purple base into butterfly wings.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • FingerPaints - Lavender Love
  • FingerPaints - 50 Shades of Ashley
  • Acrylics
Now I don't need to gush again over this base like I did yesterday.  But look at how wonderful it is for the base of this design!!  I cannot get over how it gave the butterfly wings such dimension!  They shimmered and sparkled, and I received so many compliments on them.

What do you think?  Like the butterfly wings?

Until next time, <3.
