Enchanted Butterfly Nail Art

Photo of the nails I wore a month ago. Yes, it really takes me THAT long to update anything :D

My boyfriend bought me this cool metallic shiny purple, but when I wore it it was pink!!! :doh: (useless fact: Talty never wears pink!). It has a golden shimmer to it, so my boyfriend suggested a steampunk design... it came out ugly as hell, so I removed it. I suddenly saw butterflies in there and opted for this design.

I used M71 from BornPrettyStore for the flower and leaves, and one of the butterflies from Konad's M32. I then dotted some glitter in the center of the flowers, a bit on the background and below the butterfly.

It was awesome in person, but I see a lot of tiny flaws in the photo :XD: oh well, I liked this design and I'm still learning how to do nail art, so I'm uploading this to receive some feedback and to keep a record of my progress.

This time I won't be giving a cookie to those that find the cat hair, because it's too obvious! lol I love my cats, even if their hairs get in everything I do :heart:

That's the price of having cats, a small price to pay :)

i really like it except i think the butterfly is too small. it turned out great but it took me a moment to notice it. maybe next time big butterfly and small flower. But i love the design.

Thank you! :D That's probably my fault, I prefer small things lalalalala

i'm just starting to do nail art. what exactly is M71 and M32? are those stickers or what does it mean?? thank you :)
Talty's avatar
M71 and M32 are the numbers or the image plates I used. I could explain you how it works, but this page some some great images and a video that explain it better than I could: [link]

I don't like painting my own nails, but I love looking at other people's, especially if they've got intricate designs and stuff. These are cool! :XD:

Son sellos, son más o menos algo entre calcomanias y pintarlas. Uso una especie de estencil para dibujarlas con el esmalte :D

Muchas gracias, me da mucho gusto que te hayan agradado :glomp:
