Purple Pixie Butterflies

Hey Everyone! I hope everyone is staying safe and warm out there. I can't believe how crazy the weather is out there. I was hoping we would get some cool air down this way but it doesn't seem like it is going to happen. On a good note today we start Zoya week! 

I used two of the awesome 2013 Pixie Dusts for this mani. I used Stevie from the Summer collection and Carter from the Fall collection to create a gradient. It isn't perfect but I was pretty happy with how the gradient came out.

I used two coats of Stevie for the base. I really love the way the Pixie Dusts look. The sparkle they have makes me very happy.

I actually had to do this mani twice because I had a great idea the first time that looked awful. I guess it was not too horrible, according to C anyway, but after an hour I couldn't take it anymore and I had to start over.

This mani made me think of candy for some reason. Due to having to redo the mani twice I didn't bother stamping it last night. I couldn't stop thinking about how this mani needed butterflies on it so I decided to do some stamping before I took it off. 

I used Sinful Colors white and Cheeky Jumbo Plate 9 Wild at Heart for the butterflies.

The butterflies made it perfect! 

I couldn't leave it alone so I put clear on my ring and middle finger to show you how the Pixie Dusts look with top coat. Unfortunately I did this just before taking it off and it was already dark so I couldn't get a good picture in the light.

You can see a little bit of difference in the last picture but not enough. I will have to remember to take better pictures of the top coated Pixie Dusts next time. 

That's all for now :)


  1. Of course I love this--so much I might need to copy it (but probably no butterflies because I am impatient).


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
