Sparkly Butterfly Mani

Tuesday, February 10, 2015 2 Comments A+ a-

Feb 21st Update: I replaced the video at the end of this post with YouTube version.

With so many goodies sent from Harunouta (see previous post for details), I was at a loss where to start. Then I remembered I have been wanting to do a butterfly mani, so I picked up a plate that has different butterfly images, which is BP-34.

For this mani, I started off with China Glaze HeliYum for thumb, middle finger, and ring finger. I stamped a flower image from BP-34 with Mundo de Uñas Cream & my friend Coppi's franken 'Coral', then made a decal out of butterfly image using Mundo de Uñas Black. I used 4 different Dance Legend Wow Prism polishes (names and bottle shots below) to colour in the butterflies, using this detail brush. For other fingers, I simply painted 3 coats of Dance Legend Steel Panther (just love this polish so much) and all nails topcoated with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.

I love the happy tropical look of this mani. This butterfly image is such a nice size, not too big, not too small, and is perfect for colouring in. Any butterfly lover should really have this plate!

親指、中指、薬指のベースはChina Glaze HeliYum。BP-34プレートの花柄をMundo de Uñas Creamとこっぴさんからいただいたフランケン'Coral'でそれぞれスタンプ。さらにチョウチョ柄をMundo de Uñas Blackでスタンプしてdecal作成。色付けにはDance Legend Wow Prismコレクションの4本のポリッシュを使用しています。かなり細かい色分けになるので、同じく春の歌さんのこちらの極細ブラシを使って色付けしました。他の指は好き過ぎてしょうがないDance Legend Steel Pantherを3度塗り、仕上げはGlisten & Glow HK Girlトップコート。使用ポリッシュはこちら。

Polishes used


China Glaze HeliYum
Dance Legend Steel Panther
Dance Legend Holy Diver
Dance Legend Inhale
Dance Legend Last Serenade
Dance Legend Just Another Star


Mundo de Uñas Black
Mundo de Uñas Cream
Coppi's franken 'Coral'

I was going to stamp the same flower on pointer and pinkie as well. I tried that on my right hand
but it turned out so 'noisy', so I kept it simply on my left hand

本当は人差し指と小指も同じ花柄でスタンプしようとしたのですが、まず右手で試したところかなりウルサイ感じに仕上がってしまったので、左手は作戦変更でSteel Pantherでシンプルにしてみました。

I like that this butterfly is a good size, yet not too big to cover up
the flower stamp in the background :)

Beautiful butterfly. Dance legend polishes are really marvellous too. Thanks for your tutorials. It seems so easy when you do it.

Thanks hun! I'm so obsessed with these Dance Legends lately :D They can turn any average looking manis into marvelous ones I think^^ Not saying that this mani would be boring without them though. Those images on this little Born Pretty plate are adorable :)
