Flutterby

Hey everyone!  I wanted something fun and breezy to wear for the weekend, so here's what I came up with!


I started with two coats of Zoya Wednesday, a great soft teal creme.


Next, I sponged on OPI Planks a Lot, a medium light purple creme, for a gradient effect, followed by one coat of SV.


I used Konad Special Blue with Bundle Monster plate BM-205 for the butterfly pattern.


I wanted a little bit of a flash in there, so I used the same stamp image with Up Colors Azul Arco-Iris, a gorgeous light blue holo.


The holo came out just as I hoped it would, subtle with a flash here and there.


It really gave the butterflies a bit more depth.  I finished it all off with one more coat of SV.


Here is a macro shot so you can see how the holo looks over the Konad Special Blue!


I had a lot of fun with this one, even if it was a tiny bit time consuming!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Happy Painting!

Colors: Zoya Wednesday, OPI Planks a Lot, Konad Special Blue, Up Colors Azul Arco-Iris
