Mani Monday: Butterfly and Watermelon Nails Collaboration!

Last week I collaborated with the ever so sweet and stylish Saumya from the fashion blog, Myriad Musings. We decided to do a special style series she does called Trend Trotting Thursdays! (look back on Thursdays for more!) Last week, we teamed up and decided to do a nail art series, two different and dun looks for your summer nails! Try them out yourself!
I met Saumya at one of the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) blogger events we both attended and immediately we clicked! She is the cutest mom with impeccable fashion, taste, and jokes! For her mani tutorial, she recreated a butterfly look with detailed steps below. I am still shocked at how amazing the outcome looks! It looks so hard, but with her step by step tutorial, she makes it to where anyone can do it!

For the butterfly nails you need 6 color polishes, feel free to use any coordinating color mix.  
She used 1) H&M  'blue my mind'
           2) Essie ' where's my chauffeur
           3) NY&C  'peony petals
           4) Essie  ' lilacism 
           5) NY&C ' darkness 
           6) Essie ' no place like chrome ' 
In addition you would need a fine tip nail art brush, a polka dot nail pen and some food plastic wrap. 

For my watermelon nails, scroll how to do this fun and juicy nail look yourself!

You can find our collaboration on her blog here!
Thank you and check back later this week for a special announcement!
