New Years Day Nails

Thursday, 1 January 2015

“ I just had to try out my stamping template and co-ordinated them to the dress I am wearing. For anyone that has never done nail art stamping like me this is what I achieved the first time and must say I was impressed by how easy it is.

I used 3 coats of Barry M silver glittery nail polish. Allow to dry fully between each coat.

I decided to try out the leopard print stamp. You bit a bit of your choosen colour on the template ( mine was Rimmel 60 second in black). Use the scraper and press down firmly on a slant to move the polish down over all of the leopard print stamp.  You then use your pick up tool and press it down hard on top of the template and roll it slightly to pick up the polish. I chose the wider end of the tool for this.
If you do not press down firmly when doing it the pick up tool tends to slip on the template and blurs the print.

Quickly press the stamp over your nail in a gentle rolling motion until you have gone over your nail,. You should now ave a black leopard print over your base colour. I only had a white crackle one so that is why it looks cracked and will look so much better with a normal white nail polish.

You can either leave this as it is or colour in some of the spots with other colours like I did. Allow to dry then finish it off with a top coat. I used Sally Hensen Insta Dry as I have read that this doesn't smudge the pattern when applied.

I have loads of templates to try out and when I have perfected it will be adding some videos so you can see just how easy it is.

Hope you like you look.

    1. Hi Jeanne, thank you. I have bought quite a few other nail plates too but they ywon't arrive until about 2 weeks as they are from China but they are so much cheaper so worth the extra wait.
