It's not that I don't like butterflies. I do. If I see a real butterfly, don't bother trying to carry on a conversation with me until it's gone 'cause I'm gonna be all "Ooh, a butterfly!" and just watch that little bugger flutter around and around until it flies away. But butterfly patterns, decorations, etc. aren't really my thing. So I've never had the urge to use one of the ump-teen butterfly designs available between all the different plates I have from Konad, Bundle Monster, Red Angel, etc... I have had the DRK-A plate for a few months now though and have yet to use it. Even though I'm not big on butterfly designs, the DRK-A plate has this full nail butterfly design that kinda caught my eye from the first day I saw it. The butterflies are a bit more cartoonish, with a hand drawn look to them that I like. So for this manicure, I decided to use a few polishes from the New York City Ballet Collection. I started with 3 coats of OPI Care To Danse? to make it more opaque. Then I layered on one coat of Pirouette My Whistle, another coat of Care To Danse? and finally topped it off with one more coat of Pirouette My Whistle. For the butterfly pattern, I used Konad Special Polish in Dark Purple.
Just a few more designs to go. There is a Summer Challenge starting this Friday but I've decided to pass. Especially since I would be overlapping the start of that challenge with the end of this one. I'm planning to do a post probably once a week though linking either to the new manicures that week from the group or maybe one post a week for each part of the challenge and then I'll update links as people do them. I'm not sure which way I'm going to do it just yet. But there are some super talented ladies in our group, so even though I'm not going to participate this time, I still want to be sure to share the amazing manicures I'm expecting to see these ladies come up with!
