Monarch – 31DC2014

This is a slightly updated version of one of my all-time favorite personal nail arts…textured monarch butterfly wings! This time, I added an additional color (yellow) to the gradient. The mani is counting for “Fashion” day in the 31 Day Challenge because it looks like one of my favorite dresses, this amazing butterfly dress by Luly Yang.


This mani is actually rather simple…it probably takes longer to take off (thank you, textured polishes) than it does to put on! I put together a tutorial almost a year ago, I’ll post it if you guys want! Just let me know.



~ Yellow: Zoya – Solange
~ Light orange: Julie G – Tangerine Dream
~ Medium orange: Julie G – Sugar Rush
~ Dark orange: Julie G – Hot Cinnamon
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow Me White


Yah ok, so I just love butterfly wing nail art. And you know you do too! Enjoy 😀
