I like to plan out my nails when I’m not doing all the same thing. That way I know what color goes down first and it makes it easier to do the same color at a time.
If using a base coat (which will make it last longer and I like this base coat) start with that.
Then paint the base color of each nail how every many coats to your liking. I usually do 2.
Now prep your station for stamping. Have all your supplies out including a cotton pad with acetone or nail polish remover on it ready to go.
Using STAMPING POLISH put a coat on your stamping plate. With a 45 degree angle swipe off excess polish. This will take practice to get the right feel don’t be discouraged if you have to do it a few times. Even now I have to do some a couple times. In the beginning it will take more than a couple.
With a rolling motion (as opposed to a press and smoosh) roll the stamper over the stamping plate so that it picks up the polish. These steps should move fast.
Then with the same motion roll and press onto your nail to transfer the polish to your nail.
Repeat with all designs.
Use a clean up pen or brush with acetone to remove any bits that go on your skin.
Use a stamping friendly top coat (I like this top coat for stamping).
If desired you can add another top coat for extra protection (any top coat is fine at this step) just make sure to wait until the first is dry.
I like to use a polish hardener to speed up the drying on my very last coat.
Admire your nails and send me a picture ;)
