When blue butterfly nails started as a trend

This design looks great on gel and acrylic nails and is perfect for those who want to add a touch of elegance to their look. We love how this design can be done on long and short coffin nails. This design used to be a trend back in the 1990s and 2000s. Next, this trend was paused until Kylie Jenner appeared with the pink butterfly nails. Her look reminded us of the trend, and we started reapply seeing butterfly designs in fashion magazines and beauty salons. The other great trends to try on your nails are cherry nails, daisy nails, and bling-bling nails.

There are many trendy design ideas in minimalist and bright, vibrant styles. There is always space for imagination and beauty experiments regarding blue butterfly nail designs.

Why are butterfly nails so popular?

We recommend starting with a light blue base color if you want to try this trend. Then, add white accent nails with butterfly designs. You can use real butterflies or rhinestones to create the look. Finish off your manicure with a top coat for extra shine! Now that you know how to get the perfect blue butterfly nails to, keep reading for more design ideas.

If you’re looking for something different, consider adding glitter to your blue butterfly nails. You can add glitter to all of your nails or just accent nails. To make your manicure stand out, use holographic glitter. It’s sure to catch everyone’s attention! Another great idea is to add white butterfly designs to a dark blue base color. This is a great way to make the design pop.
