31DC2014 - Animal Print: Rainbow Butterfly Mani

Saturday, September 13, 2014 6 Comments A+ a-

I said that I would only do this 31DC2014 challenge every 2-3 days, but the theme has come that I would never want to miss out. Today's theme is 'Animal Print' and I had this mani in mind for 4 months!

This mani is inspired by my lovely friend Karolyn at Nails of Aquarius. She showed her butterfly mani during the MoYou contest in May (you can see her mani here) and I was totally convinced that I needed this plate in my life. I wasn't really into leadlighting back then, but was so fascinated by the effect it created. 

For this mani, I started off with JOSS Crystal Sunbeams and stamped a butterfly pattern from MoYou London Pro 05 XL using Mundo de Uñas Black. I then leadlighted with three of my homemade jellies (shown here) plus Nfu-Oh JS033. Pointer and pinkie are painted with TiNS the dreamy magic that was kindly gifted by my dear friend coppi. The pink studs come from a rhinestone wheel sent by Harunouta aka Born Pretty Store. You can find my product review here. My 10% off code for the store is 'CPM10'. Also, I have embedded an insta tutorial at the end of this post.

This was super quick mani, yet I so love the result!! I only used 4 jellies but because the colours blend, it looks rainbowy. I would like to thank Karolyn for the inspiration!

今日の31DC2014チャレンジのテーマは「アニマル柄」。連続でテーマをやるつもりはなかったんですが、今回のはちょっと見逃せないと思いまして。このネイルは「Nails of Acquarius」のKarolynのこちらのネイルがインスパイヤ元。彼女とはMoYouの5月コンテストのときに知り合ったのですが、すぐさま彼女のゴージャスなネイルアートに魅了されました。では出来上がりはこちら。

Finished product with Revlon Fast Dry Topcoat

ベースはJOSS Crystal Sunbeams。MoYou London Pro 05 XLからチョウをMundo de Uñas Blackでスタンプ。その後、ここでお見せしたお手製ジェリーのうち3色(青・紫・黄色)とNfu-Oh JS033を使用してLeadlight。人差し指と小指はこっぴさん家からお嫁入りしたTiNS the dreamy magic。ピンクのスタッズは「春の歌」から送られてきたラインストーンウィールに入っていたもの(詳細はこちら)。春の歌またはBorn PrettyStoreでご購入の際は10%オフコード「CPM10」を使用できます。使用ポリッシュはこちら(お手製ジェリー除く)。

The polish I'm holding is TiNS the dreamy magic. Super pretty pink polish full of glitters

手に持っているのがこっぴさんからいただいたTiNS the dreamy magic。こんな可愛らしいポリッシュ使ったのいつ振りかなぁ!(゚∀゚) このチョウチョ柄と合わせて正解じゃない?と自画自賛。

Doesn't it look rainbowy? I swear I only used 4 jellies!

このネイル、非常に簡単でした。簡単なのに大満足なネイルは久しぶりです。出来上がりの写真を見て「あれ、こんなに色使ったっけ?」と思ったのですが、自分の動画を見返してみると4色しか色付けに使ってないんですよね。色が混ざってレインボーカラーになったようです。これもLeadlightのいいところですかね(゚∀゚)

さて今回もインスタ動画を用意しましたが、工程間の待ち時間が少ないネイルだったので非常にさくさく気持ちよく撮れました。こんなネイルばっかりだといいんですが^_^;

Aww thanks Karolyn, my inspirator! So glad you like it :D I wanted to make sure I did this right and did your fabulous original work justice!

I'm super surprised about how the colours blend together. I had to go back to my own video to see how many colours I used, coz I can see at least 6 colours there but I swear I only used 4! This was such a pleasant mani to create with easy steps and great effect, and I would really like to thank you for coming up with this great design <3

Really pretty butterfly! I like the reversal of colours from one butterfly to the other.

Thanks love! I was going to use other colours for the 2nd butterfly, but because I liked the colour transition of the 1st one, I decided to just reverse it on the 2nd :D
