Butterfly Flowers

... are totally part of a new species, created by me!

And I decided to create them on my nails after seeing this tutorial by The Lacquerologist ;)

I had already tried the dragged empty brush technique (just named it like this, yes) in this mani, remember?

So, when I saw Emily's post yesterday, I knew I had to recreate it... with a slight colourful change of course ;)

Wanna see?

Who's rocking the most gorgeous pearly white ever?!!? ME!!!!
And can you believe this baby is a one coater? Well, this is 
Bellaoggi Pearl White No.08, ladies! 
I bet everyone here has had the most frustrating mani efforts with a pearly white that is annoyingly translucent and such! Am I right ? 
Onwards with the mani, though, I'll swatch this baby for you later and show it off on Facebook, so keep an eye on it :)

So, then I got three gorgeous neon polishes and did the empty brush draggin thing
yellow - Dermac√©lsia Fluor Yellow 
pink - Bitty Professional No.09
green - Bitty Professional No.11

I then picked up my Golden Rose Nail Art No.128 purple striper and drew the petals for the flowers on the sides of each nail.
They're not perfect but I guess with this design what you're aiming at is a sketchy look rather than a neat and perfect flower drawing :)

To finish it, I did the flower's middle in black with Jade Rose No.61 and some dots using the same Bellaoggi polish.
And that was when I noticed they kind of also reminded me of butterfly wings! :)

How do you like these? Are they a good recreation of Emily's? 
Check it out here and after seeing mine let me know what you think ;)

Have a fantastic weekend, lovelies! <3

Hugs & Kissies,
