I have been seeing so much ugliness online lately, so even though this manicure is out of season in the States, I wanted to create something that looked beautiful.
I took advantage of a thermal gel polish I recently bought from Madam Glam for the occasion. I’ve been dying to use this but wanted to wait until my nails grew out a little more so the color change effect would be more noticeable.
The color change effect works great with flower and butterfly images, so I used 3 different images from Cheeky Jumbo Plate 2 to create my design.
I stamped the butterflies first on my index and pinky fingers, erasing parts of the image with tape so that they would only cover half of my nail at a diagonal. I stamped the full butterfly image onto my thumb (not shown). The single hibiscus was used on the other half of the index and pinky nails while the entire image of the combined butterfly and flower design was stamped onto my middle and ring fingernails, flipping the image on one nail so that the nails didn’t look exactly the same. I also added a single small butterfly to the middle finger to fill some empty space.
I was quite pleased with how this turned out, and I’ve been entertained by watching the colors shift back and forth in different temperatures.
Hope you all have had a great week! Happy polishing!
