SO! Today, I wanted to take another stab (literally) at stamping. Feeling more confident in learning how to do it affectively, using tips and tricks from other bloggers and just “practice makes perfect!”
NOW, I started off with a clean, dry nail! I got all my tools out, I used the polish’s and topcoats below. Now I found that the purple, firmer stamper I had worked WAYYY better than the softer, jelly like one so decided to stick with that. After learning from yesterdays massacre, I knew I needed to verbally assault it before or it wouldn’t obey.
ASSERT YOUR DOMINANCE OVER IT! lol
I tried some plain, easy stamps an Owl and a Seahorse and HOLY F BALLS BATMAN! Were doing it!
Kind of hard to see ( I know) since there’s no base color to contrast it to. But believe me when I saw I screamed like a banshee toddler when I got the whole owl image onto my nail! YAS!
SO I decided to be brave and paint my nails and finally get it over a base color. I chose some pink, grey, white to contrast the darker/lighter stamping colors. I also used a liquid latex barrier around the nail, since some of the stamps patterns are bigger and would go onto my skin. Liquid latex is a life saver for nail art!
Step #1 BE BRAVE!
Step #2 Verbally assault and be abusive towards the tools
Step #3 Stab, Stamp, Repeat! I can do this…………
OMFG…………..VICTORIOUS BANSHEE SCREAMING……………..!
Now, Are they the most beautiful, clean lined, flawless, stamp ever?! Absoluuuutely not!
But are they the best I’ve ever been able to do and still pretty damn CUTE?!
HELLS YES BATMAN! So as they say practice makes perfect and when it doubt just stab it and cuss it out! I hope this helps those who feel as I did with nail stamping and how infuriating it can be! It takes time and patience and don’t give up! find what works for you and go from there.
