Freehand Butterflies

Hi everyone,
So after wearing the metallic gradient on my nails for a couple of days (read the post here) I couldn't resist adding some nail art to them! I haven't had a chance to use any of my new nail polishes from Christmas yet, so I thought this would be a great opportunity.
I decided to do some freehand nail art using my new stripers, 
here's what I came up with:

I used Models Own Magenta PearlModels Own Purple Pearl and No7 Sing the Blues for the gradient.

For the Butterflies I used LA Colors Art Deco Striper in White, LA Colors Art Deco Striper in Purple/Blue Glitter and LA Colors Art Deco Striper in Rainbow Glitter.

Instead of doing my usual freehand flowers, I thought I'd try doing half a butterfly on the side of each nail.

The stripers work really well, and I think the glitter ones definitely make the design stand out.

Here is a close up of the Butterfly design:

Overall I'm really pleased with these stripers, they work really well and this simple design really stands out against the gradient.

Do you like this design?
Do you want to see me do more designs like this?
Let me know what you think.
