You may have seen my recent reviews of stamping plates from Born Pretty Store and I thought I would share a little guide on how to stamp! It took me plenty of practice to finally get the best way to do it so I hope this can help any of you that are unsure of stamping nail art.
Step 1. Choose your stamping plate and set up where you want to work. I like to put paper down to catch any extra polish and make cleaning up a bit easier. Make sure you have your polish and Stamper close by before starting too.
Step 2. Brush chosen polish over the design. You don’t need too much polish, just enough so the whole design is covered.
Step 3. Scrape over image at a 45 degree angle. If there’s too much polish you may need to do this more than once. I usually turn the scraper over and go over it again.
Step 4. Press Stamper onto design. Be careful not to smudge the design as you do this.
Step 5. Clean up any excess polish from around the image. I use a little remover on a cotton pad to do this. A cotton bud may work better if the design is more detailed.
Step 6. Gently roll stamp over your nail. Seal your finished art with a top coat!
Once you get the hang of it stamping is really great! There are so many fantastic stamping plates around that are sure to give you gorgeous nail art!
