Sunset Butterflies

Don't forget to enter my 100 post giveaway!!!!

Hello! After a little break, I was in the mood to do some more nail art.  I am really loving my new nail art brush and I'm always looking for ideas and inspiration to use it.  The butterfly mani has been done a thousand times already, but I have always wanted to try it.  And with my nail art brush, I was finally able too.

I wanted to do this mani skittles style, and opted for a sunset effect.

I love how all these colors look together!  The yellow to the blue reminds me of the colors in the sky during a sunset.  They also all work well as butterfly colors.  I used the brush half to paint on the black lines, and the dotting look on the other end for the white spots.  I finally found a use for that itty bitty dotting tool!

I definitely need to practice my lines, but from far away I don't think it looks too bad.  And I love the colors!  I think i'll be trying out butterfly nails again, practice makes perfect and all.

Here's what I used:
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out
Hard Candy in Sky
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Lacey Lilac
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Bubblegum Pink
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sun Kissed
Sinful Colors in Unicorn
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On

What do you think of my attempt at butterfly nails?

Claws up!
