  1. Prep the nails and infill the client's BIAB overlay. 
  2. Mac applied a pastel purple as the base color, but shares that this design looks stunning with any color or even sheer! 
  3. After applying your base color, apply a top coat. 
  4. Then, rub a sheer, iridescent chrome to get a gorgeous shimmery base before painting the wings! 
  5. Use a thick, pigmented black and white gel to create the butterfly wings. 
  6. Finish with a shiny top coat to complete the look.
