I am ready for Spring! I’m so over this cold weather…it may sound crazy but I’m ready to work on some Spring designs. I never have done butterfly nails like this before so I was feeling really inspired! My Watercolor Spotted nails that I did the other day kind of reminded me of butterfly wings, so I added them as some accent nails.
On all of my nails, I first painted Essie Blanc as my base color. This is one of my favorite white polishes! It definitely is difficult finding a good white polish that doesn’t streak, and this one is the best one I have found. 2 coats and it’s perfect!
Using the technique shown in this tutorial, I did the watercolor design on all my fingers (except my ring finger), and then added the spotted design (also shown in the tutorial) on my two fingers. For the watercolor, I used Rose, Gloria, Charlotte, and Blake. To hand paint the butterflies, I used these brushes along with Essie Licorice.

Are your nails ready for Spring? Mine are! I’m definitely over the dark colors of winter…bring on the brights and pastels 🙂
