Nail Stamp Tutorial

6 Comments

I have not been stamping very long but I love the amazing results you can get from a simple stamp! The possibilities for new and different manicures are endless. A perk is with the stamp it doesn’t matter if your hand slightly shakes but with freestyle nail art that’s a big issue.  I learned how to nail stamp from a tutorial. So here is my own version  on how to nail stamp.

First, here is what you will need. A stamping plate (I am using a Konad plate) Konad are a really good brand. You also need a rubber stamp,  a scraper or a plastic card (it can be an old gift card etc) and I use Konad nail polish that is especially made for stamping. This polish is much more opaque than other so it stamps well. However, I have been told that if you want to use regular nail polish for stamping you just file the rubber stamp a few times to make it less smooth.

First paint your nails a base color. I used OPI Margarita.

Then paint lightly over the stamp design.

Then roll the stamp over the plate in one smooth motion.

Stamp on the nail using the same smooth left to right or right to left motion.

Allow it to dry, (won’t take long) and cover with a topcoat! I use OPI Top Coat.

Please let me know what you think about this  tutorial. It’s my first!!!
