It’s Christmas Eve – how did that happen? I couldn’t let Tuesday go by without another edition of International Nail Artist Tuesday.
Today’s nail expert is from Canada, our second to last Canadian to kick start our first month! Theresa, known to the nail art community as Nailstampfanatic…is an expert when it comes to nail stamping. I caught wind of her designs a few months ago through Instagram, and I just loved how she made basic nail art stamping so advanced and eye catching. Over to you Theresa!
Lindsay recently asked me to do a guest post on nail stamping. After checking out her blog I had to say yes!
I’m Theresa, aka Nailstampfanatic. I am basically obsessed with nail stamping and how you can get amazing results without being a completely talented nail artist.
How does nail stamping work? All you need is an image plate, a stamper, scraper and nail polish. In four easy steps you have a design from the image plate, transfered (or stamped) onto your nail.
1. Use a thick to cover the image on the image plate
2. Use your scraper to scrape the excess polish off the image
3. Use your stamper to pick up the image from the plate
4. Transfer the image to your nail.
Once you get the hang of it, nail stamping is completely addictive!
