Monarch Butterfly Nails

For this design I attempted a monarch butterfly wing design.

This design wasn’t too hard to pull off. I started by painting all my nails in a yellow colour.

Then using a makeup sponge, I sponged a gradient in orange onto the bottom halves of each nail.

I then took a black nail art pen to outline where I wanted the black areas of the wings to be. I then filled in the outline at the tips of the nails with black nail polish.

Finally, I used a small dotting tool and a white colour to add some dots over the black area at the tips of each nail.
