Butterflies in your stomach can be a fantastic feeling—but butterflies on your fingernails are even better!

We’re all about the ’90s/2000s revival that is currently underway and butterflies are back in a big way. And why shouldn’t they be? The whimsical creatures are colorful and cute—perfect for summer.

Not only are the butterfly clips you probably wore as a teenager back in style, but the fluttery insects are making an appearance on nails as well.

The gorgeous creatures are known for their vast color palettes, allowing them to fit with whichever hue of polish you choose. Pastels look particularly pretty.

Those with steady hands may opt to add their butterflies with nail art, but luckily for the rest of us, there are some fabulous nail stickers to choose from.

If you aren’t ready to completely take flight with the trend, that’s okay—embrace the accent nail. Let those butterfly babies land where they wish.

The cuties can be as bold and detailed, or subtle and sweet, as you wish. Just wing it!
