Rainbow butterfly accent nail + video tutorial
Hey ladies! I was kind of short on time but I wanted to bring you something anyways, so I made this rainbow butterfly that I've had in my head for a while. I used Parrot Polish Aeon Flux for these beautiful black holographic nails and Serum No. 5 for the glow in the dark gradient. I also made a video tutorial so come see!
Serum No. 5. What else :-p I used I Gleam In Pink, Orange You Sunny, Solar Power, Krypton-Brite, Indi-Glo & Ultra Violet. I painted the butterfly using black acrylic paint and my brush from Christrio Scotland. The top coat I'm using is HK Girl top coat from Glisten&Glow.
I have a video tutorial down here *points to the end of the blog post* but I'll also describe it to you in detail. First, apply your black polish on all of your nails and a white base color on your accent nail and let it dry thoroughly. Tape off your cuticles to minimize cleanup afterwards, I use scotch tape and medical tape (it's nice and pliable).
Take some white acrylic paint and paint your butterfly using acrylic paint. Start with the outline and then fill in the space around it. Make some lines inside the wings and let everything dry. Top coat and you're done!
