Mani Monday: DIY Butterfly Nail Art

We are a little obsessed with butterflies, as you can tell by the Ruby Wing logo.  Here is a great DIY nail art tutorial to help you create butterflies on your fingertips.

Step 1 : Apply two coats of background polish on all ten nails, we recommend Ruby Wing Lagoon polish. Apply your first wing-color choice in the form of a curved line. Apply your second wing-color choice next to it, and leave a space so you can repeat the curved lines as a mirror image.

Step 2 : Take your striper brush and very lightly pull your brush through both colors, stopping in the middle of the empty space. Repeat this to fill out the wing design, and make sure to angle the lines towards the middle so they meet in the center. The lines should all meet in the center of the empty space you left.

Step 3 : Once your wings are marbleized on all the nails, create the detail for your butterfly by painting the body and outlining the butterfly for a better look. Love from Ruby Wing
