Purple Crumpet Fairy Spring Challenge Day 22 - Butterfly!

I really liked this until I saw how awesome all the other blogger's butterflies were!  Lots of them did butterfly wing nails which I've never seen before and are simply stunning! 

So - for this I used Revlon - Watermelon Fizz WHICH SMELLS LIKE WATERMELONS!!! A lot of people seem not to like the smell, but I love it, and I have the same problem that I had when I wore  Revlon - Grapefruit Fizz - I keep smelling my fingers and looking like a weirdo! :)

Anyway, I love this colour - it's really bright and juicy and squishy and makes me look really tanned! I took some pictures in the sunshine today! That's right... SUNSHINE! In dreary old Plymouth! I'm going to go out and enjoy it later, once I've written some more of my dissertation (boooo).

Look at the pretty gold shimmer!!!

I used:

Revlon - Watermelon Fizz
Konad Special Stamping Polish - White

For the butterfly - 
China Glaze - White on White
Rimmel - Strawberry Fizz (also scented - like Strawberries!)
Hot Looks Collection 2000 - BMX Bandit
Sinful Colors - Island Coral
Kleancolor - Aurora  

I used the Kleancolor to do the teeny tiny bit of glitter on the butterfly - I managed to fish out a single piece of large hex glitter to put under the pink spot. I'm quite pleased with myself about that ^_^ The butterfly is done freehand with a teeny brush and some dotting tools.

Make sure you check out these other fabulous bloggers!

Thankyou for looking!
