Summer Butterflies

This is a manicure I've wanted to do for a long time.  I've seen the idea on both Lacquerized's blog and Cutepolish's youtube channel.  I thought I could free hand it myself; but alas - I had to enlist Amanda's help.  She did a beautiful job with the painting.  When I type it looks like butterflies flitting over the keyboard.  I love this mani so much.

Orly - It's Up To Blue (thumb), Sally Hansen - Amazing Blaze (index), Studio M - Frenzy (middle), Sinful Colors - Courtney Orange (ring), Orly - Hook Up (pinky), KISS black striper for the black wing accents and Pure Ice Superstar for the dots.

LOVE.   LOVE.   And so much win!

Editor's note - The Orly Hook Up really stained my nails.


  1. These are amazing Melissa. I have also seen cutepolish's tutorial on youtube but haven't got 'round to doing them yet. I love how you used different colours for each finger :-)

  2. Oh wow... these are gorgeous!
    This goes on my list of things to try.. :D
