I've seen this monarch wing design all over the place, and have been wanting to try it out. I figured that today would be an appropriate day to give it a go, since the monarch is a symbol of the Day of the Dead. I didn't have the time or patience to do a full manicure of wings, but I'm loving this accent nail! It turned out much better than I thought it would, and I'm thinking I need to do a full manicure soon!
My nails are painted with LCN's Tokyo Expression, which might be my favorite all time polish. The monarch nail was done with a base of Sally Hansen's Mellow Yellow. I sponged a layer of Sally Hansen Sun Kissed on that, and then sponged some parts with OPI's Schnapps Out Of It on top of that. I lined it in Tokyo Expression, and then did the dots in Milani's White on the Spot.
