Monarch Butterfly

Good morning everyone! Today I have for you a Monarch Butterfly inspired manicure. I know this has been done many times before but since this is my first time trying it, I thought I'd post it. I am IN LOVE with this manicure! It's probably one of my favorite manis that I've done so far. I have always thought Monarch Butterflies were beautiful but I love them even more now.

Sorry for all the pictures. I tried to control myself for this post but the butterfly is so pretty, it deserves not one--but five pictures:


For this manicure I used...
China Glaze Lighthouse- golden yellow base
Zoya Rica- orange-y coral sponged in the center
Zoya Reva- raspberry red sponged on tips and into center
Art Deco White and Black- used for black lines and white dots

When I first saw this manicure on other blogs I really wanted to try it. I had no idea how easy it would be! Mine could have come out flawless but my Art Deco polishes are so thick and goopy! It made drawing the lines 10x harder than it had to be. I think I'll try the Kiss nail art polishes next because these were such bad quality.
