Butterfly Nail Art

Happy July! I still can't quite believe it's not May anymore. I better start making my packing list and deciding which polishes to take to college - I don't know how I'll pick! Anyway, today's manicure is some butterfly nail art that I did on top of the jelly sandwich I showed you on this past Wednesday. I used a black Kiss striper, Wet n Wild White Creme, and a toothpick to make the design, and I followed this tutorial by Confessions of a Polishaholic - though, of course, hers looks about a million times better than mine.

I guess there's not much else to say about this one, except that I am shocked that it wore as long as it did - I think I had this one for four days, and there were only two very small chips at the end of that time. With all the coats of nail polish I used in the jelly sandwich with nail art and more top coat on top, I didn't expect it to last two full days, and I have no clue why it did! I'm glad, though, because I wore this during my college registration, so if it had all fallen off I wouldn't have had time to fix it. 

Have you tried butterfly nails? If not, you should - and let me know!

  8. Cute! I totally feel you about which polishes to bring to school. This past year I brought all 300-something polishes...but for this year I might just bring a large container of polishes, mostly untrieds. But it's like favoring your children =P

  9. My goodness! I can't imagine packing all my bottles up...I'll probably end up taking more than I really should, though. LOL
