Nail art is a gorgeous, yet subtle way to add some flair and personality to your everyday look. While elaborate hand painted nail art is best left to the pros, you can still jazz up your nails on your own by nail art stamping.
Nail art stamping is a relatively new nail art technique which involves transferring designs to your nails using a stamper. In a nutshell, nail polish is applied onto a metal plate with designs engraved on them, which is then applied to the nail using a stamping tool.
Advantages of Nail Art Stamping
Unlike other types of nail art, nail stamping gives ultra-fine and detailed designs, which can be quite difficult to achieve with freehand nail painting. What’s good about nail stamping is that you can easily change the nail art designs whenever and wherever you wish. Apart from the fact that it’s very easy to apply, there’s also a wide range of styles and designs that you can choose from. You definitely won’t run out of options because there’s just way too many.
Tools Needed for Nail Art Stamping
Typically, nail stamping kits already come with all the necessary tools you need to make your nails pretty. But as you move forward in your nail stamping journey, you may find yourself buying individual tools because some tools included in the kits just won’t cut it. Apart from your nail polish, these are the three main tools that you will need for nail stamping.
A stamping plate is a metal plate that has different designs engraved on them. These designs are the same designs that you will transfer to your nails.
Nail stampers are used to transfer the design on the stamping plate onto your nails. Stampers that come with stamping kits are usually made from rubber, but nail stamping enthusiasts highly recommend using transparent stampers such as the Clear Jelly Stamper for accuracy and ease of use.
This is used to scrape off any excess nail polish applied on the stamping plate.
