Butterfly Nails have taken over in the nail design realm and we are here for it! This super cute nail art style is a great look that can be as simple or DRAMATIC as you wish. Keep things tame with just a butterfly over the color of your choice. OR up the design ante and MESMERIZE by taking things up a notch with TONS of crystal glamour!
Butterfly Nails -2020 Nail Beauty Trend to Get Into
Personally, we enjoy and have worn both ends of the spectrum… simple and intricate. Nevertheless, with this nail look the compliments just seem to roll in with ease. It’s a great style that a lot of nail lovers can relate to; especially if they like anything nature-esqe, ethereal or vibrant.
How do you style it? Honestly, there is no “right” way. Many ladies choose to do it with french tips, as the tip, with and without acrylics. Or even as an accent nail. Which in our opinion… works REALLY WELL! As an accent nail, the butterfly will stand out but not overpower. Which is important if you don’t want your main nail color of choice getting lost in the shuffle.
Also, we have noticed that some choose not to paint or create a “whole” butterfly. They will make a design with just one set of wings; and make that spectacular. Still just as beautiful, and an excellent option for this trend.
Does It Work for the Novice or At Home?
Additionally, these types of nails are cool to get into because they are easy to do from home as well. During the pandemic we all have had to readjust thanks to shops being closed during lockdown. Therefore, having a pretty nail design to do from home is VERY convenient.
If you have the gift of drawing and steady hands you can create all the various butterfly artwork for your nails as you like. We have seen big ones, small ones, as well as some that extend across multiple fingers. The creativity is endless.
However, if you would like a helping hand (excuse the pun LOL); or would like a cheat. There are a few options available to gain the Butterfly effect. You can purchase nail stickers and simply place them where you like on your nails. Or many companies and nail techs sell pre-made press-on nails aka decals, with the Butterfly nail design already on it. Winning!
