Total Beauty has made this an U.S. only sweepstakes, but international followers can still vote.

Let's take a look at my entry in the Battle of the Bloggers" Summer Spotlight.

We were sent the butter LONDON Brilliant Bronze Trio to create our Summer Spotlight look. So I set to work. I knew I wanted to create a DIY decal look that would be summery and fun. 

I started with a base color of  Poole on all my nails except for my ring finger. Poole is a tiffany blue shade with a hint of green - making it a soft, minty shade that is opaque in two coats. I used Torch for a base color on the ring fingernail. Torch is a shimmery bright orange shade. The shimmer is amazing.

Then I added a gradient using Marbs. It is a stunning, rich gold nail polish.


Then came the butterfly decals. After I made a couple of "sheets" of nail polish using all the shades, I used a punch to cut out the butterflies. Then I applied them to my nails and added a few random dots with a dotting tool. 

I love how this turned out. It's subtle, yet classy and summery. 

What do you think? Are you going to try DIY decal nail art?
