April Showers Challenge - Butterflies

Hello everyone :)
I have another April Showers challenge post for you today... Butterflies! I've been dying to do butterfly nails for a long time and never got round to it so I was so excited to see it in this challenge! I've been looking around online and seen some beautiful butterfly nails, so here's how mine turned out...
I think these turned out quite well for saying it was my first go! My boyfriend had no clue what they were when I showed him but my son knew straight away :P My inspiration for these nails was a monarch butterfly, even though they're orange and not pink :P
For these nails I used two coats of OPI Pink Flamenco, I could have gotten away with one coat if I was more careful. This is such a vibrant pink polish, I've fallen in love with it! :) I then used my Models Own Nail Art Pen in black to draw the lines and used a dotting tool and OPI Alpine Snow to create the dots.
I'm so pleased with how vibrant and cute these turned out :) Again, this is one of those kinds of nail art that is very versatile depending on the colour combination. I'd love to try this over a sponged base.

Have you tried butterfly nails? What colours would you use with this nail art? let me know in the comments :)
Keep an eye out for my 250 follower giveaway tomorrow! :D
Thanks for reading :)
