Polish the nail baby blue. Add two yellow petals in the corners. Double-load a brush with pink and white polish and apply it to the center of the nail to create two petal-shapes. Add two more petals, partially overlapping the first two, to turn the petals into butterfly wings.


Use a nail art brush and black polish to draw the butterfly’s body and antennas. Add a curved black dashed line under the butterfly.  Make black dots at the corners of the flowers. Use a nail art brush and white polish to draw lines coming out of the flowers.


Add two white dots at the end of the antennas. Add three curved white lines beside the black dashed line.
