I have a feeling that my day 2 orange nails are going to be a pretty common design theme for today. Traditional monarch butterfly wings - and I'm not sure why I started the challenge with two butterfly designs.
I actually did a subtle gradient on my nails using Picture Polish Citrus and Ulta 3 Chocolate Cake, but then I wanted sparkle, so I put a layer of Picture Polish Popsicle over the top. Popsicle is pretty sheer, so the gradient still showed through, but it added an amazing orange shimmer.
I stamped the butterfly wing design from Vivid Lacquer plate VL004, it's just the perfect size for my fingers.
Here is a shot with my daughters pet monarch butterfly. Before anyone flames me for keeping a butterfly in a jar, know that it's electronic. Check my instagram account later tonight for a video of the butterfly and my nails in action.
