I have some butterfly stamping decals for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas. The colour theme this time is orange, purple and green, and my own pattern type is decals.
So I’ve made some butterfly stamping decals, and have painted my butterflies in orange, purple and green. I don’t think there are any green butterflies are there? I have used some artistic license there!
The butterflies are stamped using ÜberChic Beauty 3-01. I am a newcomer to ÜberChic Beauty plates. I have admired them from afar, but I am always very wary about buying from abroad, so I hadn’t taken the plunge. Until She Sells Seashells started selling them, that is!
Having stamped onto a mat, I then coloured the images in using a variety of polishes. I used two different shades for each butterfly, and some have different colours at the top section and bottom section, and with others I have tried to gradient the colours. It wasn’t completely successful. Plus, my purple looks a bit blue. I can assure you I used a lilac and a purple, but my camera seems to have interpreted the colours differently.
I am really not very good at applying stamping decals. I always get bubbles and smudges. These aren’t too bad, but still not perfect. I thought I’d make them matte too, and much prefer that to the shiny version. It also lessened the bubbly effect, so improved the overall look!
