Autumn Butterfly - NOTD

It's Friday and this is my first post of the week!
Bad blogger.
I have a whole array of excuses though, first off, I have not been able to get a single manicure to go right, I've tried everyday but it just wasn't happening. Secondly, I have run out of everything, cotton pads, nail polish remover, sponges, Seche Vite, base coat and now tea bags!
This is all because I have had to do 3 school runs a day leaving me very little time to go stock up on these things, but the boy is now full time (a week and a half early by his choice!) so I have some free time again!
It feels so good.

Today's nail art is something I have wanted to try since I first started taking an interest in nails.
I had forgotten about it until recently on the school run, my son started counting butterflies.






I'm so pleased with how these turned out, although I'm not sure if it's because I love them or because I'm so relieved they turned out well enough to blog!
They are super pretty though, I just wish I had some Seche Vite as they are looking a little bumpy for my liking. But it's nothing another coat of topcoat won't sort out.

The base colour is a Nails Inc that I got in a set from TK Maxx and was yet to try, it's called New Burlington Place and it's so pretty for Autumn, I took some photos before I started the nail art to show you!



Does that earn me some good blogger points back?
This was two coats with no topcoat. 
Just beautiful!

For the nail art I used Barry M Black and Matt White.
