Summer Time Nail Art Challenge Day 3: Butterflies/Garden



      It's Day 3 of the Summer Time Nail Art Challenge. Which also Happens to be the last day of this Challenge. I hope you all have enjoyed looking at the designs that everyone has come up with. I know I have had a blast creating them. I especially enjoyed today's manicure. I opted to only do butterflies since I do a lot of flower manicures. I made a huge mess doing this manicure which was fun at the time but a pain when it came time to clean up. This manicure also had me missing my longer nails something fierce.

     I decided to do a skittled gradient manicure for this one with shimmery, flashy polishes. After all I wanted some sparkly butterflies. The polishes I used are: Cover Girl Rogue Red (red) Flamed Out (orange) Sulfur Blaze (yellow) OPI Tiffany Case (light Blue) Get Your Number (dark blue) Color Club Glitter Wonderland (purple) and Sally Hansen Lava (orangish/pink). I stamped the butterfly wing image using Finger Paints Black Expressionism and Bundle Monster plate BM-424.


     The OPI polishes also happen to be Liquid Sand Polishes which added a textural flair to this manicure. Alas you can't really see the gradient so much with them. I have to say that my ring finger is my favorite, it reminds me of a monarch. I actually started with that nail and knew exactly which colors I was going to use based off of a comment I got on my post about the Capitol Collection by Cover Girl.

Now let's see what everyone else came up with for the last day of the challenge.

    1. Thanks Jess =) I like them all too to be honest but my ring finger is my favorite. The pointer finger didn't quite turn out like I envisioned it but its still not bad. I only wish I had done this in a full manicure so I could wear it for a few days. I guess I could always recreate it.

    1. Thank you =) This was my first time using this stamp and I really like it. I think my nails need to be a bit longer to really appreciate the full image though.

    1. Awe thank you. I like the yellow and purple together too, but think its missing something. Almost like it needed another color. But I still like how it turned out.

    1. Thanks. I originally was going to freehand the entire manicure but when I came across this plate I knew I had to use it.
