An Almost Rainbow of Butterflies

Today's mani which I did about a week ago, started out as an experiment. I had never stamped with more than one colour before and I wanted to find out how easy or difficult it is because I like the final results so much. It turns out, it's quite simple and not very messy as long as you work fast (if you are using regular polish).


The 3 colours I used are very cheap polishes (I don't like to waste my good polish on stamping) and I think it came out really well. The colours are vivid and show enough for my liking. I got quite a few compliments on this mani. A few people asked me if I was wearing stickers or press-ons, so I guess that's a compliment. At one point I just said yes after I tried to explain to the first girl that it's all polish and stamped with 3 different colours. She looked confused and sceptical!

  1. Love how this turned out! I've always wanted to try something like this, but I don't have any bright nail polishes that stamp great in my collection.

  2. Super, I love multicolour stamping!!! Hehe, when I'm konading my nails, people ask either if I wear stickers, or if I painted the patterns myself with a brush. After I tried to explain the concept of stamping, I just gave up and now I say yes to whatever they assume it is :))
