Feeling Peachy?


Are you a fan of the recent #PeachesMakeupChallenge? Then you gotta hop onto that trend train with this mani design.

Leave your ring finger for the butterfly and paint your remaining fingers with a peach shade. If you're feeling crafty, then you can also do DIY ombre nails; take a tiny sponge and cover half of it with white nail paint and the other half with peach, dab it onto your nails and that's it.

Take a tiny butterfly sticker of a similar shade and stick it on your ring finger and voila, you're nails are ready to be shown off.

3D Nails


Want your nails to stand out from the crowd? Then 3D nails, it is!

Instead of sticking butterfly stickers to your nails, ask your nail technician to do some 3D magic on your nails and we bet you're going to be obsessed with the final outcome.

Sparkly Blues


Give your butterfly nails a much-needed sparkly update with glitter polish.

Leave your ring and tiny finger alone and paint the rest of your nails blue. Next, apply one layer of topcoat on your pinky finger and sprinkle some loose glitter on it. While the other nails are drying, peel off a butterfly sticker and press it on your ring finger.

Easy peasy and yet so pretty!
