Butterfly Garden

Next up on the Nabi Holographic 3D goodness, we have a Brone and Red gradient with stamped hanging vines and butterflies!


This mani started with Brone (I think they misspelled bronze?) a pinkish-orangish pale holographic polish. The holo is medium…not terribly strong, but certainly visible. Shown here is three thin coats, but they dry very fast!


I then added Red as a gradient to the tips. Once that was on, I stamped with BM-225 in black and then butterflies from a variety of different plates (BM-222 and 307) in white.


I went back later and went over the butterflies by hand with Dayglow by Serum No 5…I don’t think I have photos but OH MAN THIS POLISH ROCKS. Full mani coming soon! So yes, I had glow-in-the-dark butterfly nails. Going to bed has never been so much fun!


ANYWAY. I did not add top coat, as holo polishes tend to lose their rainbow when you add quick dry top coat and I don’t own any other type! I was pretty happy with this mani, even if it chipped rather quickly.



  • Pink/orange: Nabi – Brone
  • Red: Nabi – Red
  • White: Julie G – White Orchid
  • Black: Julie G – Black Sheep
  • Stamp: Bundle Monster – 225, 222, 307

  1. I love this one!

  2. Absolutely love this nailart. Am a sucker for the twirl-like-and-butterfly-design anyway, but with these colours it’s just gorgeous!!
