nail art: Whats Up Nails butterfly vinyls

pr sample

My least favorite part of painting is actually getting the base down; or the outlines if you want to call it that. So I thought maybe I'd speed up that part by using nail vinyls. I got some cute butterfly patterned ones from Whats Up Nails in my package and to my joy, they're actually small enough! Big fat yay for that :D

I used essie limo-scene as my base color and after that was completely dry I used the vinyls and filled that out with black, my favorite outline color. Cirque Colors Memento Mori is a one-coater, so something like it is perfect!

I let that dry for a few minutes and then colored everything in with blue and a taupey shade for the butterfly bodies. I always add topcoat here, so I'm able to go over the outlines again and add details, like the stripesm thickening the outer parts with black and to finish with tiny white dots. I couldn't love the result more! So happy!

Black and nude is one of my fave combos, so I already loved it after using just the vinyls:

I'm seriously so amazed that the vinyls are small enough for my taste!! I'll definitely be on the look out for more like that. It's so much fun to use these <3


  1. This is just delightful! I liked it when I saw it on IG, but I enjoyed seeing your process even more. I love how you customised the basic nail vinyl pattern. :)
