Magical Butterfly wings with Zoya Cosmo and OPI Sheer Tints

Heyo lacquer lovers. My posts have been a little barren and late in the day lately but life has been a little hectic and whatnot so I am making sure this post gets done this morning before my day gets thrown into possible Chaos and I don't get to post until one or two am again...sigh. Anyway, today I have some lovely magical butterfly wings for you. The base colors created with Zoya Cosmo layered with OPI Sheer tints was inspired by Narmai Piggy Luv another fabulous nail blogger. If you aren't familiar with her I suggest you look her up she does great detail work and translates actual paintings to her nails.

So all I did was paint the nails with Zoya Cosmo, then paint on random dots and sections of the sheer tints (minus the blue because mine freakishly shrunk up to half its size and became completely hard even though stored just like the other three that are perfectly fine...) I then top coated and waited for it to dry completely.

I then used Essie Licorice with MoYou Kitty stamping plate 13 to stamp a butterfly wing pattern onto all the nails. I just thought this glittery, rainbowy, sheer look was perfect for some butterfly wings, and I don't doubt that in the future when I shell out for another blue I will re create this with another butterfly wing look.

What do you think guys? Do you have sheer tints by OPI? Have they all stored well for you? Let me know what you think in the comments :) Hope you enjoyed this post see you next time :)

  1. I love how this turned out! I've never had a stamp turn out as well, I'll have to try the brand you have :)

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you like it. I use the MoYou London plates and stamper. I however use a Konad scraper because I am not fond of the plastic scraper (might just not be used to it) that came with the MoYou stamper. I also press my nail into the stamp rather than roll it on to the nail, and always use a light touch when picking the image up off the plate :)

  2. This is absolutely beautiful! Ive been very inspired by Piggie Luv too, I have picked up some sheer tints but I am a little scared of them! I think the butterfly wings look so fabulous paired with the beautiful colours :) Hope your having a great 2015 so far! xx

    1. Thanks :) i hope you are having a great 2015 as well, mine has been a little crazy hence the irregular posting schedule but hopefully that levels out here soon. I love the sheer tints although my blue decided to completely dry up and become a hard lump and was therefore unuseable. It was stored exactly like the other three which are fine so no idea what happened there.
