Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday--Pimp My Nailz!

Hi Readers!  I am FINALLY featuring the every popular monarch butterfly wings mani as my Monkey See, Monkey Do post!  My friend Sam pinned this on Pinterest awhile ago and I loved it.  What makes it so different from others I've seen--IT'S RIMMED!  You know me and I'm always joking that everyone loves a good rim job so when I saw this all I could think of was Cassanova meets The Virgin lol!  So here it is my first ever free hand monarch butterfly wing mani
To be honest I'm not a huge fan of my mani!  The lines look WAY too fat to me!
I think I would have liked it better had I done the butterfly wing water marbling over it instead of freehand.  Face it when it comes to freehand I pretty much suck!
The inspiration for my mani was from Pimp My Nailz.  She does some very cool stuff and you can see her butterfly wing mani here

Here are the side by side comparison's!
Her lines are so nice and dainty!

To get my look I used China Glaze Salsa, OPI Atomic Orange, Zoya Pippa and Zoya Tracie.  I used Milani Black White for my wings outline and Milani White On for the dots.
