Watercolour (aquarelle) butterflies nail art

Hello lovelies,

I was experimenting with watercolours again and I've attempted to paint colourful butterflies. It certainly doesn't look like I've imagined but practice makes perfect :D

  1. This is really great; how did you do the watercolors only in the butterflies? Did you outline then watercolor inside? Love this look!

  2. Even though it wasn't what you had in mind, they look amazing! I really love them. Did you do it with normal watercolours, or are there special ones for the nails?
