Dragonfly Wings

It’s wing day! I’ve done butterfly wings at least three times…possibly more. So this time I decided to mix it up a bit and try dragonfly wings a-la-kbkopija. Really, there are three differences…sorta. The wings start at the free-edge not the cuticle (although that was just so its easier to photograph), the wings are green, and the bottom edge also has dots.

I really like how these came out! I knew there was a reason I do wings so frequently :-p I started the whole thing with a three-color green/teal gradient, although you can’t see much of it in the final product. It still adds a bit of variety!

Every time I do wings, I just want to do more. If there is one type of nail art I can do…bug wings! Odd specialty :-p
