Nail art: Butterfly wings?


Remember when everyone was doing butterfly wings on their nails? I think the trend is pretty much over by now, but I suddenly felt like doing a mani like that again. I’m not sure if the final result looks anything like a butterfly wing, but I do like it 😛


Tools/items used:

-Flat brush
-Detail brush

Nail polishes used:

-Essence Hardening nail base
-China Glaze – Liquid Leather
-Essence – Stuck On You
-Rituals – Nail Gloss
-Max – White
-Cirque – Himalayan Pink
-Color Club – Cloud Nine
-Color Club – LuminICEnt
-Essence Better Than Gel Nails top coat


  1. Apply base coat
  2. Apply two layers of black nail polish
  3. Sponge some dark grey dots onto that
  4. Apply a thin top coat to get a smooth surface
  5. Paint the pattern you want to make with white nail polish and a detail brush
  6. Go over that pattern with multiple glittery nail polishes and a detail brush
  7. Finish the manicure with top coat
