Mariposa, Borboleta - Nail art inspired by a song
I haven't been too inspired lately, which basically meant I was using the time to wear a lot of my untried polishes for the first time. While that was cool and I enjoyed it, I still enjoy nail art a lot more!
This one is very special. The picture is a bit crappy, I apologize for that. However, I did this just in time for the release of Mariposa, Borboleta by Nick Howard. I first heard that song at a private concert of his I went to in December and I have been so so so in love with the song ever since. Today is the official release of the single. The design is inspired by the artwork on the cover of the single.
Also, as if I didn't already like this enough, I made it glow in the dark too! That is basically perfection.
China Glaze - Highlight Of My Summer (bright mint)
essence - i care for you (off-white)
essence - lean on me (very pale cream)
essence - winter wonderland (pastel blue)
China Glaze - Bahamian Escape (light blue)
models own - banana split (cream/pastel yellow)
Catrice - (S)wimbledon (vibrant turquoise)
essence - the night of magic (almost black, dark blue)
Serum No. 5 - Indi-Glo (glow in the dark royal blue)
Serum No. 5 - Highlight (glow in the dark jelly nude)
// note: Most of these colors don't appear in their "true" form on my nails, there was a lot of mixing and blending involved in the making of this manicure :) Also, I think those are all the polishes I used, but if I missed one, I apologize.
