1. Apply pink gel to the entire nail. Cure for two minutes. Use black gel to add a diagonal stripe and several dots.

2. Use black gel to create the outline of a butterfly, including an antenna. Add pink and purple gel inside the outline, then drag a toothpick through the two colors to mix them together. Cure.

3. Add five pearl-shaped nail gems to the border of the nail, plus a gem in the corner. Add shimmery pink polish to highlight the portion of the nail with the black dots. Apply top gloss. Cure for one minute.
