Hanh Lisa Doan creates a colorful outdoor scene.
Use a flat brush and green acrylic paint to paint a little more than half of the nail. Use the brush and blue paint to paint the remainder. Add some white clouds on top of the blue.
Double-load a flat brush with yellow and pink paints, then push and wiggle to create a butterfly.
Add grass leaves and multi-colored flowers with stems. Add two wavy black lines representing birds in the sky. Add antennae and fill in the body of the butterfly in black. Accent the wing tips with purple paint and white dots. Accent the wings with black. Apply top coat.
