For the butterfly nail art I checked out various tutorials online, but this one from Nail Art 101 is a particularly good one. It's surprisingly easy, as long as you have a striper brush and a steady hand! I used the Rio Nail Art Pen in black and did the white dots with a dotting tool.
Have you ever tried butterfly nail art? What other nail art could I try over a gradient base? Stamping is something I do want to try... Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
