Nail Polish reviews, nail art and more


August 20th, 2014 | Posted by Mari in Nail wraps & decals | Stripes & dots

It all started with the idea of a simple nude manicure decorated with white horizontal stripes. Nothing more, nothing less… and here’s what I ended up wearing:

Butterfly nail design on nude

When I did white stripes over nude base I suddenly decided that the manicure looked too boring for my mood, so I spiced it up with butterflies on the accent nails. Then the butterflies demanded some black on the rest of the nails, so I had to add thin black stitches to outline some of the white stripes.

Striped nails with nude and white

For the striped manicure with butterfly accents I needed:

  • Orly Pure Porcelain – cold nude base
  • Black and white acrylic paints – wide white stripes and black stitches
  • Striping tape – to do the stripes
  • Butterly nail decals
  • Clear top to seal the design

I think I’m happy with the end result. The butterflies made the design more summer appropriate and the stripes added to the not-so-boring-nude look :) I hope you liked it too! Let me know ;)
Thank you for looking ♥
