flip flop february day 19: wings/outline

the theme for day 19 of this challenge as you see is wings/outline. I've been wanting to try both actually, but to add a little more detail an more of a challenge, for this one I picked wings to do, and assuming it meant butterfly wings, thats just what I did. Click the link below to see today's nails. 

 for this look i started out with a base of wet n wild wild shine sunny side up which is just a pretty basic orange color.

 I then added in a subtle gradient with la colors in an unnamed yellow (it looks a lot like sinful colors pull over and you could probably use that instead if you have it) and I also aded flicker over that which is a really bright neon yellow.
once the base for my wing was done, I painted on the details using a tiny nail art brush and black acrylic paint. I then used a dotting tool and white acrylic paint to add in the white dots. I like the look a lot more than I thought I would, and it was a lot easier than I thought it'd be too. I think it could use a little more practice, but for a first try, I think it looks awesome.
