30+ Butterfly Nails To Try This Summer!

Are you looking for some trendy butterfly nails to try out this year?  If so, you’ve come to the right post! 

Butterflies have been such a trendy design lately!  With summer here, I wanted to put together a collection of my favorite designs to give you some inspiration.  I tried to include a wide range of styles from butterfly tips to water-color butterflies.

Whether I’m going to a salon or doing them myself, it’s so fun to get inspiration!  I wanted to put together a collection of my favorite designs, so you can figure out what style you want to try!

A lot of these looks can easily be recreated at home!  If you’re wanting to try out a matte look, I recommend getting this matte nail polish:

Matte About You Polish

To be able to hand draw on flowers, we recommend these nail art brushes.  They are incredibly fine, and help draw out really intricate details:
