So continuing on with the theme, a caterpillar will eventually turn into a butterfly and as summer start to arrive in England, a butterfly design seemed just right. Here's I've paired two different stamping plates to create this design.
Step one - was to paint my nails white in order for the peach colour, that was very translucent, to show up better. I didn't mind too much how streaky or opaque this layer was, it was just to use as a base.
Step two - Painting on the peach colour, here I just kept painting more on until it was to a thickness of my liking. Here I used three coats of the polish.
Step three - Stamping of the leaves, using a black polish I stamped onto my nails. Placing the design in different places on each nail.
Step four - I then used a cotton wool bud when stamping the butterflies to remove any that I didn't want, as my plate didn't have a small collection of the butterflies, just a full nail design. I typically left three on the stamper and stamped those three into any blank space on my nail.
I then cleaned up around my edges and put on a top coat to make the design last.
