After chrome, gradient, tie-dye and negative space manicures, here’s another nail trend doing the rounds. It’s butterfly nails! It is a throwback trend from the 90s which is being welcomed back! From celebrities to manicurists, this trend is making everyone’s heart flutter. After Kylie Jenner was seen flaunting butterfly nail art on her Instagram feed last week, it didn’t take long for her fans and followers to get onboard this trend.
If you’re wondering where to start, then here’s all the inspiration you need.
A trendy mix
This manicure has not one, but three trends coming together—glass, ombré and butterfly nails. If you want to go minimal with the butterfly nail trend, then this nail art is perfect for you. Paint tiny pink butterflies on glass nails so they pop and let the rest of your fingernails sport the ombré effect.
Butterflies on jelly nails
Your multi-coloured jelly nails just got a cool new upgrade, thanks to butterfly nails making a comeback. Either get tiny butterflies painted in silver on your jelly nails or get your hands on butterfly stickers for a similar effect.
Short and sweet
A huge shout-out to girls with short nails! If you’re looking to amp up your short and cute nails so they stand out, then you must give butterfly nails a shot. With a nude base, paint blue butterflies on two or three of your fingernails, and voila!
Dose of colours
If you want your butterfly manicure to pop, then add a dash of vibrant colours to your nails. Think baby pink and sky blue on a clear white base—this combination of colours is sure to make your manicure look oh-so-statement-y.
OTT and how!
Now, here’s a take on butterfly nails that is definitely going to give all the others a run for their money. Glitter glass nails with butterfly accents placed on every fingernail. While maintaining such nails can be a task, we are so intrigued by this Lady Gaga-esque nail art. Cool or creepy? Decide for yourself!
So girls, it’s time to give the hottest new nail trend in town a shot!
