Butterfly nail art with Elevation Polish

Wednesday, July 30, 2014


I haven't had time to create much nail art lately and I missed it. So I set to work to create a butterfly themed mani with floral accents. 

I think I like this one! If I had to recreate it I would redo the red butterfly to match the blue one. He is rather large. But I like the overall look.

I used a base color of Alpine Snow and added a little bit of blue nail polish to break up the white. It doesn't show in the photos very well - but it's there.

Then I used Elevation Polish Bohai Sea, which is a brilliant scattered holo blue,; Darkest Storm, which is a holo navy blue; Lhasa Rooftop, which is a shimmery deep magenta red; Aconcagua, which is a rusty holo orange to make the butterflies. I outlined the butterflies with black acrylic paint and added white dots for accent. I also added dots of  Elevation Polish Tronador for additional accent.

For the flowers, I used varying shades of green acrylic paint for the leaves, and the flowers are also created with the same Elevation Polishes.

I topped it off with a coat of HK Girl (which is one of my favorite topcoats for nail art).
