Butterfly Nails: Inspired by Nail Stickers

Good evening lovelies!

How has the start to your working week been? I am always so glad when Monday is over and I can get home and unwind with Mr LiPP and the pups.

I have a couple of polishes and stamping plates in my collection that I love so much I have never featured them on this little blog in case I cannot do them justice. Sounds crazy, right?! The owl stamping plate from bundle monster was one of those items where I finally conquered my fear and came up with this pretty little manicure that I was very proud of. Time to conquer another fear/favourite tonight... Barry M Spring Green.

Isn't it just the most vibrant green? I love it.

I created these nails to match some nail stickers I purchased to give myself a little pedicure with. When I saw them in the shop I realised they were exactly the same shade as Spring Green so it was a given that I would finally get to blog about this stunning polish.

For this manicure I started with two coats of Barry M Spring Green and then using my trusty Konad White I stamped these delicate little butterflies found on Konad plate M78.

I arranged the butterflies differently on each nail just to mix things up a little. For the finishing touch I added just one pink rhinestone as I love pink and green together!

How do you like these nails? I realise I am totally biased towards them as green is my favourite colour but I hope you all enjoy them too :-)

Have you tried nail stickers for manicures or pedicures yet? How did you get on with them?
