Hi everyone! This is Devon from Bundlemonster and today
I’d like to show you the art of stamping with this nail stamping 101 tutorial. The first step is to make sure you have all
the needed items to stamp. Paper Towels Acetone Cotton Pads Stamper and Scraper Clean Up Brushes Your stamping plate creative art polish and regular polish Base Coat and Top Coat First remove the protective film from the
plate. Start with completely dried painted nails. Then, select an image and apply a thin layer
of stamping polish. Take your scraper and swipe at a forty five
degree angle. Now act quickly and grab your stamper. Once you’ve checked that the image has transferred
maneuver and apply it directly to your nails. Then repeat the stamping process for the rest
of your fingers. Remember to clean your stamper, scraper, and
plate between each use. If you’d like to know how to properly clean
your tools, refer to our tips and tricks section later in this video. Using your brush cleanup the excess around
the cuticle area with acetone. Remember, to clean your brush on a paper towel
after each use so you don’t reapply the polish on to your skin. For the last step make sure your design is
completely dry. Now perfect your look by applying top coat. Congratulations! You just completed the perfect stamped manicure. Stay tuned for a detailed tips and tricks
section on basic stamping techniques as we address the most frequently asked questions what are the best scraping techniques? Depending on your design you may find it more
useful to scrape in different directions. Some popular ways of scraping, are swiping
up. Swiping down. and swiping to the side It’s important to find what is most effective
for you. The most popular techniques are the up and
down or the rolling method. It also depends on your stamper. If the stamper is on the firmer side, then the rolling motion is more effective
versus if the stamper is on the softer side then
the direct up and down method is more efficient. Pure acetone or acetone based polish remover is the most effective for cleaning your stamper, scraper, and plate. It is strongly suggested not to use enriched removers that have oils in the formula because it will leave a residue
on your tools that could affect your stamping outcome. Another quick tip for
cleaning your Stamper is using tape or a lint roller to remove excess polish how long should stamping take? the whole
process from placing polish on to the plate to transferring the image to your
nail should take you no longer than 15 seconds per finger. The longer you wait
the more time you give the polish to dry out. What is the difference between
regular polish and creative art polish? The bolder image on the right uses
creative art polish which is designed to have more color pigmentation versus the
image on the Left which is semi-transparent however an opaque
regular non stamping polish will often work as well. Do I have to stamp over a base color It’s not necessary to stamp over colored
polish you can stamp on top of the clear base coat for a negative space manicure Why can’t I pick up the image with the
stamper? Possible reasons if the plate is not properly cleaned polish buildup can
occur in the crevices. Another reason is over scraping. If you over scrape the
image too many times it could cause the polish to dry out. The solution is to
make sure you quickly scrape and do a thorough cleanup with acetone on the
Stamper and the plate To make sure it’s completely clean. Why is the image not
transferring to my nails? Perhaps you waited too long between
scraping and stamping by now the polish has dried the solution is to quickly
pick up the image and stamp your entire nail bed I’ve created the perfect stamped
manicure but when I apply topcoat the image is smeared here is the solution
wait at least 10 minutes before applying your top coat in a three-stroke method
the goal is to gently glide the polish over the design without your brush
digging into the image causing it to smear your beautiful artwork For some inspiration check out these
