Guest Blogger No.2! - The One With The Butterfly...And The Girl Who Answers Emails ;)

Hello fellow nail art enthusiasts, I am Kelsie from kelsiesnailfiles and I am so excited to be doing this guest post here at Varnished Valkyrie! I am fairly new to the nail art and blogging world so I love making new friends (especially Canadian ones!) and getting the opportunity to showcase some of my work on other blogs :)

First of all I want to say that I have been a follower of Varnished Valkyrie for a little while now and I adore it! I think that having two contributors to a blog is a fantastic idea! Kas and George each have a unique style so it keeps things fresh and interesting.. it also sets them apart from other blogs (in a very good way). Thank you ladies for having me here, it really is a pleasure. 

Now, on to the nail art.. This mani was loosely inspired by a stamping manicure that I stumbled upon a while back, which you can see here ( Before I decided to purchase my own stamping set, and long before i started blogging, I used to attempt to freehand a lot of stamping manicures that I found online. Today is no exception... I couldn't get my hands on that plate with the two butterfly halves, so I decided to wing it! 

I used Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Midnight in NY as my base (I only just noticed how perfect that is because Kas and George are probably lounging in NY right about now lol)
I freehanded the butterflies and added the dots using KleanColor neons in blue, pink, and amethyst.

Once again I'd like to say a big thank you to Kas and George for having me here! :)


  1. This is absolutely fantastic! How long did that take?! :)

    1. Not as long as you'd think... And thank you! :)

  2. Wow, this looks amazing! Your freehand skills rock! :)

  3. wow! her mani looks so cute! LOVE IT!

  4. The colors are very bright against the base, absolutely gorgeous!

  5. " I decided to wing it!" Purposeful pun? Either way, it put a smile on my face! I love your manicure- ridiculously awesome for freehand! The colours all work brilliantly together, and I love how the butterfly wings match up. :) Very talented!

  6. These are amazing! You got some crazy freehand skills, I always love your blog!
