I've been looking forward to this theme. I've seen lots of pretty butterfly win manicures and wanted to have a go at one myself. Up close mine looks kind of messy but from afar it looked good. I started with three coats of I'm With The Lifeguard and then sponged on Frostbite in the bottom corner. Once it had dried a bit I used the striping brush and Black Satin to create the lines and a larger nail art brush to fill in the tips. I used a dotting tool and Lily White to add dots of various sizes over the black tips.
