One stroke Butterflies with daisies

 Hi y'all! I have some butterfly one stroke nail art to share with you all today! Really loved how these turned out! I tried butterflies once before this as well, and well, I didn't even finish it all the way as once I tried to get the shape of the butter fly on, it was just... not pretty. Looked nothing like a butterfly. So when I sat down to do these, I decided the one stroke butterflies would likely be much easier and they were! I love how these turned out so much! Just click through the jump to see more! 

 I started this look off with two coats of NYC Amazon Green which is a lovely frosted mint green. (Looks more cyan blue to me than mint but whatevs) and then I let that dry. I started out by putting the butterflies on my nails. I used a wide flat brush, and two different colors (In this case light blue, and white) of acrylic paint. If any of you aren't familiar with the one stroke technique, a quick google or youtube search will solve that problem! 

Once I had the basic shape and color of the wings down, I went ahead and added in my flowers, also done with acrylic paints. Then when the flowers were done, I went back to the butterflies with black paint and a tiny detail brush, adding in the little details, outlining the wings, adding the body, etc. 

These definitely came out SO MUCH better than my first attempt at butterflies for this series. I loved the look so much and the colors together are my favorite part of it. 

Hope you all enjoyed this look! Let me know what you thought in the comments below!
