Butterfly Dancer

Hello and happy, happy friday!

By now I am almost to my reservation which some of you know, is Mille Lacs. I'm off to pow wow it up! A pow wow is a HUGE Native American celebration.
Check out some awesome photos here if you're curious. There's tons of dancers and drummers and of course, food!
I'm a fancy shawl dancer and the nickname for fancy shawl dancers is butterfly dancers because of the way they twirl. Here's a video of a ton of fancy shawl dancers from the Gathering of Nations from this year.
I'll be sure to take tons of pictures to bring back with me and eat tons of frybread tacos for all of you!

As for my nail art I've mimicked the butterfly theme and matched the colors to my outfit. 

My first attempt at butterfly nails went terrible. This time I would say things went well!

I used
China Glaze - Fancy Pants and Turned up Turquiose  as the base colors
Kleancolor - Afternoon Picnic for the glitters
as well as Sally Hansen - Crystal Beading for the glittery details.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as I'll be dancing my butt off!
