Hi everyone, I'm Jessie from http://nailedit1.blogspot.co.nz/. I've only been in the nail blogging community for a few months and haven't done a guest blog before so this is quite exciting and new for me!
I did this monarch butterfly manicure earlier this month. I've seen variations of it all over the web and thought it was such a cute idea! I used some cheap but good nail polishes for it: Jordana - Orangesicle, Jordana - Sweet Orange, MIKI - Black and Jordana - White.
After my base coat dried I painted all my nails white, so the oranges would show up well. I then did a gradient of "Orangesicle" and "Sweet Orange," but focused the darker colour in the corner more than the top. Then I painted on the black details with a little brush and added the white dots with a dotting tool (those things are really handy!!).
I'd like to try this again sometime in another colour - pink, purple, green. Although it wouldn't look natural I think it'd still be cool :)
Thanks for reading and a big thanks to Lou for giving me the opportunity to be a guest blogger!
