Monday Blues: Butterfly Explosion

Hello my lovelies! It's the first Monday of February. I hope it's gonna be a great month for everyone! I'm excited about spring and can't wait for the warm weather. Meanwhile, I created a manicure that expresses just how much I'm looking forward to blue skies. If you follow my blog for a while, you might have noticed that I have a bit of a butterfly obsession. I created countless butterfly manicures in the last years, so why not make another one. Here it is!


First off, let me say that this manicure didn't turn out as expected. I wanted to use another polish for the stamping but the bottle cap was completely stuck. After struggling with it for a while, I gave up and chose another polish that didn't stamp that great. I still got lots of compliments for these nails so I guess the vivid base color is what counts more. My butterfly obsession doesn't stop at nails, I have a couple of dresses and lots of jewellery that is butterfly themed. I used two of my earrings as props for these pictures.


Both polishes I used for this manicure are from Kiko. The base color is 525 Metallic Pastel Blue and the stamping color is 294 Indigo. The butterfly image is from plate BP-07 from the Born Pretty Store.


This manicure was extremely easy to create and made a great impression on everyone. This bright blue is the kind of shade that doesn't go unnoticed. Don't forget that you can use code MFL91 to get 10% off your Born Pretty order. And check out the other February Monday Blues in the links below!


Have a great week!

  2. They look awesome! I really should use my acrylic paints more often especially now that I know that doing gradients with them can get such great results like this. The peacock stamping looks fantastic too.
