Marble Effect Butterfly Mani featuring Madam Glam Polishes

November 13th Update: I replaced the video at the end of this post with YouTube version.

Today I created something using a new technique, new polishes, and new stamping plate. How exciting!

I started off with Madam Glam Minty Canvas for all my nails. You can see the swatch and review about this polish on this post. Then here comes the new technique - I placed few drops of Madam Glam Sea Swing and Sun (blue), You're a Beauty (pink) and Minty Canvas randomly on plastic paper, squashed and twisted with a stamper, then dabbed it onto my nails. I repeated the process few times till I was happy with the marble effect. This technique was inspired by Sandy @Beaching Nails and Swanette @nailstamp4fun, who showed us this technique on their respective YouTube channels a while back. 

When the base was done, I stamped leaves and flowers from Ejiubas EJB-01 plate (side B) using Urban Nail Art white stamping polish, then made a stamping decal out of butterflies with Mundo de Uñas Dark Gray, coloured in with Madam Glam Aqualicious and You're a Beauty. I stamped dragonfly instead of butterfly for pointer and pinkie. 

This is such a fun effect, yet easy to create. You can achieve the similar look by placing drops directly on your nails and squash, but I think this technique is better at keeping the polish layer nice and thin. I wish the photo shows the marble effect better, but I like this soft look. These Madam Glam polishes work so well together to create a springy look!

ベースは全爪 Madam Glam Minty Canvas。このポリッシュのswatchとレビューはこちら。そしてここからが新テクニック。プラスチックフィルムの上にMadam Glam Sea Swing and Sun (青)、You're a Beauty (ピンク)、Minty Canvasをランダムに垂らし、スタンパーで潰してクイっと捻り、爪にポンポンと乗せる。マーブル模様がうまく出るまでこれを数回繰り返す。このテクニックはスタンピングの大先輩、Sandy @Beaching Nails と Swanette @nailstamp4funのそれぞれのYouTubeチャンネルで見たものを採用させていただきました。

ベースができたら、Ejiubas EJB-01プレート (B面)の葉っぱや花柄をUrban Nail Artの白のスタンピングポリッシュでスタンプ。その後Mundo de Uñas Dark Grayでチョウチョのdecalを作成し、Madam Glam AqualiciousとYou're a Beautyで色付け。人差し指と小指はチョウチョの代わりにトンボをスタンプ。

We're still few weeks away from Halloween, but I think I've seen enough of spooky manis already :P
This is so fresh and nice for a change <3

このマーブル効果、初めてなので色が近いパステル同士でやってみました。写真ではちょっと見にくいですが、実際はなかなか自然なマーブルに仕上がっています。簡単でいいですね~(゚∀゚) しかも爪にポリッシュを直接垂らしてから潰す方法よりも薄く仕上がるのが◎。色んな組み合わせで試したいテクニックです。

I'm so going to try this technique again with different colour combos :D

新しいプレートも使ったし、Madam GlamのポリッシュとUrban Nail Artのスタンピングポリッシュも使えて一石三鳥\(^o^)/ ハロウィンのネイルにやや食傷気味なので、趣向を変えて春らしい爽やかな仕上がりになって満足です。しかし、最近炎天下の中外に出ることが多いので手の日焼けが酷いですね・・・。こういう可愛い色使うと肌とまったく合わないのが玉に瑕^_^;
