The supernatural . . . with Halloween (and Halloween challenges!) right around the corner, I didn't want to go with ghosts or vampires or anything like that. They will be done soon enough! So I was browsing around, searching for inspiration for another mani- the Honor Nails You Love prompt (which I'm treating as a recreate)- when I stumbled upon the perfect idea- in four places no less! Thanks go to More Nail Polish, A Liquid Blog, Fedora Harp, and ErinZi's Nails for the inspiration!
While all of my lovely collaborators did this mani as butterfly wings, I took a slightly different spin- mine are fairy wings! See how shimmery, sparkly and magical they are? :) I've always wanted to do a butterfly wing mani, but I don't have a stamp with that design, so I kept putting it off. After seeing so many lovelies show up in the challenge, and after gaining confidence through the challenge, I decided to give it a go freehand.
My bases are Orly Fowl Play (index and pinkie), Orly Ingenue (middle) and Hard Candy Beetle (ring). The designs were made with a tiny paintbrush and black and white cream polishes.
See the magical duochrome-ness? Ingenue is especially stunning with it's pink-purple-copper shift, and I'm not really sure why I don't use it more!
