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.
