I think this design is fitting to post today (although I wore it about a week ago) because we finally have some intermittent sunshine today! It's basically been dreary and raining on and off for the last week and a half in addition to having flood concerns looming over us all. So some nice cheery butterflies are just what I needed!

Since my boyfriend got me Ellagee Crushed Citrine for Christmas, I've been looking for an opportunity to use it alongside Crows Toes Shoot the Butterfly. So, I decided to take some inspiration from the latter polish's name and go with a butterfly theme! I started off with one coat of black polish on my thumb, middle, and pinky fingers. I also applied a coat of Sinful Colors Clementine to my index and ring fingers. When those bases were completely dry, I applied two thin coats of Shoot the Butterfly onto my thumb, middle, and pinky fingers. After protecting my cuticles with liquid latex, I sponged a few layers of Crushed Citrine onto my index and ring fingers for maximum glitter coverage. Then, I painted my butterfly wing design using black polish and a few dots of white. Then I coated with generous amounts of topcoat for a smooth, glossy finish.
I also took a quick video to show how sparkly this mani was, but since we were lacking sunshine when I wore this mani it's a little sub-par by my standards... but at least it's something!

I loved wearing this combo, it was oddly a nice combination of bright and vampy - perfect! What do you think? Lemme know, and thanks for stopping by!
