Butterflies have been a popular style motif since the 90s. And with beauty trends leaning heavily on the that decade lately, it’s no surprise this beautiful insect lives on. Maybe not the same one though – we don’t think their life cycle is that long.
If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to get on board with this timeless trend, try out some butterfly nails for your next manicure. Whether they’re handpainted or pressed on, you’ll feel like Britney Spears in her prime in no time.
Just don’t forget to stop by Claire’s and pick up some butterfly hair clips to match.
