Digit-al Dozen: Rainforest Flutterbies

Greetings and Nailutations,

We are now on Day 4 and I had to do a mani with butterflies.  The images I see of the butterflies in the rainforest are exotic, colorful and vibrant (even if they are little "flying worms.")  (Sorry, I had to quote Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory.)  I wanted to go bold, so I went down the neon road and I think I will go down that road more often!

Now let's get to the details!

Products used:
Fleur de Lis - Crosette, Skyrocket, Kamuro, Willow, Peony (provided by brand for Polish Con Gradient Tutorial table)
Drip Drop Nail Paint - Tighty Whities (base), Yoga Pants
Ellagee Polish - Lickity Split Latex Mani Mask (press sample)
Clear Jelly Stamper - Stamper (press sample)
SuperChic Lacquer - Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat
LINA Nail Art Supplies - Spring 01 Plate
Heather's Hues - Heart of the Matter

I started with a white base of Tighty Whities and then used a gradient of neons with these amazing flakies in them from Fleur de Lis.  I topped the gradient with a shiny top coat and stamped 2 different styles of butterflies on with Spring 01 Plate and Yoga Pants.

And I also did the matte version - which I am a huge fan of.  Neons + Matte = :)

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails
