31DC2012: Day 22 - Inspired by a Song

Today's mani is inspired by a song, by my favourite singer of ALL time. <3 Delta Goodrem was my biggest role model when I was little. She still is an amazing role model. If you're not from Australia you probably don't know who she is. Well you may know her as the woman who dated Nick Jonas last year. This November I will have been a huge Delta fan for TEN years. How crazy! :O If you don't know who she is, you should really Google search her. She's amazing. :) I was sooooooo lucky this year and I got to meet her... TWICE! It was surreal to see her in person. I bawled my eyes out when I saw her. LOL.

So this mani is inspired by one of my favourite songs by her; Butterfly. :) She opened her Visualise Tour in 2005 with this song!
So obviously, since the song is called Butterfly, I did butterfly nail art! This nail art is also inspired by Brie (strawbrie on Instagram) who did a GORGEOUS butterfly mani recently!

I first did a sponged gradient with Essie - Van d Go and a coral franken that I made and showed you here. This franken is pretty similar to Sally Hansen - Coral Reef if you like the colour! I then used acrylic paints and a striping brush for the rest of the nail art! :)

Hope you like it! And hope you'll check out Delta's music!

Is it strange that I knew what song you had before I even clicked on the link? Butterfly is my fave Delta song too, AND I'm from the UK. I knew of her from when she was in Neighbours, haha.

@Polished Raych
That's so cool that you knew the song before even clicking the link haha :D Yay!

I loooooooooved her on Neighbours too. <3 I used to be OBSESSED with Neighbours when I was younger. I'm pretty sure that was the first place I heard of her too.

@Call of Beauty Slack Ops
Thank you! :)

@ElissaYep! That's the only reason I knew of her too. I forget what she was called now, but I remember watching the episode where she's singing at her piano and I was instantly hooked.

Like it? I totally love it, Elissa! You made one fantastic design! It really takes full concentration to make each nail design perfect. There are ready-made nail art available in the stores, but you chose to do it on your own. That’s really awesome! But I wish you sealed it with top coat so that it can have that glazed effect, and also to prolong the quality.
