Blue Morpho butterfly wings mani

I had a lot of fun doing this look especially since it was my first time doing the butterfly wing design. I love the base color, it was my first time doing marbling with the polish already on my nails. I started out with one coat of China Glaze's Deviantly Daring and adding a drop of Party In The Penthouse by Nicole and Bluey by Butter London and used my dotting tool to marble the colors. I then did the lines with Charcoal by Klean Color and instead of white dots I used Stroke of Brilliance by Essie. Now when I completed the lines and accents I found that the lines didn't show so I used Chunky Holo Poppy to accent the lines and of course a generous helping of Seche Ultra V to finish off the rest!

Now confession time.. I wont say that this is my best look and it didn't really feel like it came out the exact way I wanted it and plan to try the monarch wing design again at a later time with some tweaks.


  1. Hi Jen,
    I have noticed that most of your designs are very glittery so I challenge you to do one manicure that is not glittery or shimmery.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and I appreciate the challenge but I don't own any non shimmery polish whatsoever. Sorry to disappoint!
