Shoot The Butterfly





Today's polish, CrowsToes Shoot The Butterfly, was part of this year's spring collection, which is perfect for a polish dedicated to a butterfly, but I'd say the colors look more like fall, don't they?








Shoot The Butterfly has a black jelly base with medium orange hexes, small white hexes and tiny holographic glitters (I guess, they're hexes too, they're to small to check). I expected it to be very sheer, but it was opaque after three coats, which is, in my eyes, not too bad for a jelly. The colors match the monarch butterfly exactly. Shoot The Butterfly dries a little gritty, I added one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat for a smooth finish.













On my accent nail I used three coats of China Glaze Harvest Moon (Capitol Colours Collection), an orange foil polish, and added a butterfly wing pattern with Bundle Monster plate BM-424, a dotting tool and black and white stamping polish. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top provided a shiny finish.




Crows Toes polishes are available at LlaroweShoppe Eclecticco and Overall Beauty.

  1. Love love this manicure!! I´m actually not a fan of orange on the nails but you´re really making me reconsider this. ^^
    Especially the wing turned out gorgeous. :)

    1. Thank you so much! Actually, this is the only orange polish in my stash, I'm not too fond of orange, either ;-)

  3. Wow, your accent nail is amazing. I literally gasped out loud when I saw it. Well well WELL done. I feel like such a noob now, with my dummy nail art.

    1. Thank you so much, Melissa! Honestly, stamping and tape manis are the only techniques I'm good at. Just never ask me to do a freehand mani, I guess any little girl could do it better ;-)
