In this blogpost I'm going to use the Essence nail art stampy set. This stampy set comes with 1 stamping plate with 7 designs, 1 stamp and 1 scraper. The price for this set is €3.-. You can also buy a kit at the Born Pretty Store which comes with a plate as well for less than $3.88 and free shipping.
Born Pretty Store. Have you girls receive it yet?
Step 1: Choose a design, I chose the Hello kitty design of the stamping plate m71.
Step 2: Put some nail polish on the Hello Kitty design, cover it completely. I used the Dear'Lee black nail polish.
Step 3: Use your scraper and scrape off the excess polish, leaving only the nail polish what's in the indentation of the design. Remember: you have to scrape it fast and you can only scrape it once. Don't scrape it again if it didn't work in the first place cause your scraper is dirty - just clean it with nail polish remover and start over again.
Step 4: Use your stamp and press it on the design. You can stamp it straight down onto the design or you can use a rocking motion, pressing the stamp down starting from the right then rocking it to the left. Remember: the time between the scraping and the stamping should be very short, cause the nail polish will dry very quick.
Step 5: Quick check if the whole design is on your stamp.
Step 6: Quickly press the stamp on your nail following the curve of your nail. This has to be fast as well since the nail polish can dry on your stamp.
Step 7: And you're done ^^. Woops, the placement isn't really correct but I'm still a newbie heheh....
You can also put two nail polishes on the design, see pictures below. This design is from the same stamping plate (M71) It doesn't look perfect yet xD I need to practice more lar..
Hope this tutorial helped, if you have any questions feel free to drop a comment ^_^~
