You just have to go for sky blue tips and then add one butterfly on each of the nails and give a twist by placing each of the butterflies in a different spot then the one you placed on another nail. 

Solid Colored Butterfly Nails

Who doesn’t love solid colored nails, but what about butterflies? No worries, they are not going anywhere. This nail design gives a twist to the solid nails trend as you don't have to paint all of your nails in solid color and leave one or two (or maybe three) nails bare.

Nude Butterfly Nails

Nude nails? Yes they are minimal and classiest nail designs you can opt for. Today we're adding a twist to the nude nails with a butterfly art on the top of them to make a unique stand-out style of our own. It's too easy to create and highly versatile to rock at any occasion.

Say goodbye to all the minimal, cute, small and soft butterflies and welcome the bold, glittery, metallic, and ombre butterfly nails by opting the following bold butterfly nail designs I have picked for you all.

Bold Butterfly Nail Design

This cute yet bold nail design is just the right choice for the ones who are bold but with the hint of softness. Minimal leaves on two and big butterflies on other two nails, leaving the thumb nail bare (a perfect balance between bold and minimal).

Ombre Butterfly Nails

How can we leave ombre nails behind when we are talking about making a bold statement with our nails? Ombre nails have been always a go-to when we want something twisty and bold, it's highly versatile and can be incorporated according to your taste and preferences. Go light by painting only half of your four nails ombre and then add glitters and embellishments on the top to make them stand out a little more. Lastly add a big butterfly to the fifth of your nails to complete the look.

Black Butterfly Nails

Achieving a bold nail look calls for black butterfly nails, as it's timeless, classy, bold and elegant of all time. This nail inspo is really simple to achieve as you just have to paint two of your nails solid black and opt for outlined butterflies for the other three nails of yours to create a perfect balance between classic and trendy appeal.

These nails are extremely stunning because of the gorgeous details they have and the perfect outline makes it even more appealing. The white dots are making us stare at this for a little more as they are placed at just the right spot and doing their job perfectly.

Bold nails call for a splash of colors, so let’s paint our colorful inner-butterfly on our fingertips. Just like the rainbow nails we were seeing all over social media in past days these are trendy enough to stay for sometime as a trend too.
