#52weeknailchallenge: inspired by a pattern

Soooo, pattern... It's probably a "difficult" prompt, but I've been wanting to do something, but I felt that I never had the right tools... I've never really had proper stamping polishes or a large variety of vinyls... Now I have a bit of both and I could finally do what I wanted to do for so long.

My one colleague has this scarf... Grey with almost neon orangey butterflies and I just love it! This is what I came up with.

I started with two coats of Tip Top triple putty on my index, middle and ring finger. On my thumb and pinky is two coats of Essence off to miami!.
I then placed some thousand butterflies vinyls from Cherry Blossom Store on my miracle mat. Then I painted a thin coat of off to miami! over the vinyls removing them and using it again... I found that I could use the same vinyl twice. I assume it's because I'm not placing them on my nail. Once they were semi dry I painted a clear coat of polish over it and waited again.
Once it was dry I peeled them off my mat and placed it on my nail. I top coated that and then painted OPI matt top coat over that. I left my pinky and thumb shiny.
And that is my pattern mani. What do you think? I love these vinyls even if they are a bit of a pain when it comes to peeling them off the backing.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. This looks so cute! Great colors and of course a very frugal use of the vinyls... another win!

    1. Haha thanks. Oh and I had to Google frugal.

    2. Hehe, I google translated it in the first place :D
