NOTD: Monarch nails

Last night I posted to my Facebook asking for color ideas and Jilltastic suggested I use orange. I almost never wear orange but I was so sick of removing glitter polish, I wanted something easier to remove when the time came 😉 I have this sort of ugly orange foil-y franken I mixed up that I try to use up whenever I get the chance so I did a coat of that for my base. It’s a great one-coater, if nothing else, and a wonderful base for other orange colors. Then I got the brilliant idea to try monarch/butterfly nails! This is my first attempt at this so it could use some work, but overall I’m really happy with it.

Since I hate the finish so much (but can’t bear to dump it out) I did two different sheer oranges over it–9.0.2.1.Orange and Sparkle and Soar. It’s a bit difficult to see the difference in the colors but inside the curve at the base of my nail is just my ugly franken and 9.0.2.1.Orange, the rest of the nail is those colors plus Sparkle and Soar over it. I absolutely adore Sparkle and Soar, I’ll have to dedicate a manicure just to it soon 🙂

 

I’m surprised at how much freehand art I’ve been doing lately–it’s great practice for my freehand art week I have coming up!
