You can create fun and unique nail art designs in just three quick and easy steps – apply polish to the image plate, stamp it, and transfer it to your nails. You can stamp the designs on artificial or natural nails too. Use different color nail polishes on a variety of images to create colorful one-of-a-kind designs on your nails.
Sometimes, a sample design chart of nails created by a professional nail technician using the kit is also included, to make it easier for you to create your own unique designs using the stamping kit. The best part is that it comes complete with full instructions, tips and techniques for getting the best results.
Before you begin, read the user’s guide to make sure you get the best out of your nail stamping kit. Ensure the surface you are working on is protected and that your nails are clean, dry and grease free. You can stamp the image design directly onto your natural nail or apply a base coat of polish in your favorite color before stamping on the image.
You can actually use any completely opaque nail polish on the image stamps. You can even go on eBay and buy a generic, or what’s otherwise known as “fauxnad” stamper and scraper alone and buy your favorite image plates separately.
