You can create these beautiful nail stamping designs at the comfort of your home without going to the expensive nail salon (and it only takes a few minutes to achieve).

What is nail stamping?

This is a nail art technique that involves transferring designs in nail polish to your nails using a metal plate that has these designs and then a stamp to put these pre-designed designs on your nails.

Why nail stamping?

This technique gives fine, delicate and detailed designs that you can not achieve with hand painting. With nail stamping, you can design your nails for any occasion or just for fun and at your disposal.

Nail stamping kit:

Nail Stamp: a Nail stamp, also known as a stamper is used to transfer the designs made on the image plate on-to your nails.
Image plate: This is a metallic plate, in different sizes, on which the images/designs are engraved.
Scraper: You will be using this to scrape off any excess nail polish on the image plate.
Nail polish (for base color, and for stamping).
Special topcoat. You will have to buy this separately because successful stamping needs special topcoat.
Nail wipes. These will be used to clean the image plate between stampings.
Q-tips (cotton bud)
Nail art brush. Used for applying the coats.
Nail polish remover (preferably Acetone)

Nail art stamping tutorial using regular nail polish

First apply the base coat and leave it to dry completely.
Second, apply the main base color that your stamp will go over.
Next, paint your nails with a clear topcoat over your main base color and leave it to dry completely. Though this step is not mandatory, I recommend that you do it (Applying clear top coat) because it will make it easier for you to correct any stamping errors you may experience ahead.
