The festival of Durga Puja is just around the corner and I know how much my Kolkata reader friends are excited about this. If you visit Esplanade these days for shopping, it is so crowded that you can't even step in. Earlier I used to shop a lot from there but I am not liking the crowd nowadays. So I prefer shopping locally now. It has been very long since I did a nail art tutorial, as I was more into product reviews this month. So Lavanya asked me to do some nail arts for the upcoming festive season. I always like this if she asks me to do particular nail arts, as I tend to forget the designs I plan to do. This makes things easy for me as I can work on the requested nail art. Today let's check out Butterfly Nail Art. Butterflies are one of the most beautiful creations of God. They are an epitome of beauty and freedom. The most searched tattoo designs for girls are butterfly designs. So why not try a butterfly design on your nails too. Take a look at the tutorial to know how to do it.

Things needed:
  • Any pastel shade nail polish of your choice.
  • A black nail polish.
  • A white nail polish.
  • A thin nail art brush.
  • A top coat.
  • A dotting tool or a toothpick.


Apply 2 coats of your preferred nail polish and let it dry.

Make one slanting arch at the upper part of your nail and one at the bottom part with a black nail polish using a thin nail art brush. Fill the bottom part like you while doing a French manicure.

Using your upper arch as base, start drawing lines ending at the bottom arch thereby joining both of them.

At the bottom arch, start making small arches where you joined both the arches so that the straight joints start taking a curved shape.

Let all the black nail designs dry completely. After that, pick up white nail polish with the help of your dotting tool and make small dots at the base as shown.

Top your nail art with a top coat and your butterfly is ready to be flaunted.

Do try this cute nail art in the upcoming festive season. It looks as if its very tough and you need a steady hand, but trust me, just rest your hand on a support and then try it. It is very easy. The choice of colors is completely yours but the black and white nail polishes are mandatory. I hope you liked this nail art and I will be back again with a new nail tutorial.
Do share with us your way of doing this design and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
