Stamping decals

From quite a while I wanted to make some stamping decals but I never had the proper tools for it. Thanks to Born Pretty Store I received recently a rectangle shaped stamper and a scraper. I took out from my collection my new Qgirl Q18 stamping plate and started to make my decals. I have to mention, it needs a lot of patients to make one!

First I have chosen the base colors: Golden Rose nr.51 from the Selective Collection and a new green polish by Aden nr.171. This is the first and the last time that I buy this brand, the brush of this bottle is thick and very hard to handle, the formula of the polish lives strikes and after a few hours it becomes bubble too! 

I made a small step by step tutorial. First I stamped the chosen image on the stamper, I painted with green and red (Orly - Monroe's Red) some of the parts I wanted and left a few shapes without polish. After drying I topped it all with a clear top coat. And now comes the part when you need patience, I waited until it dried completely and with the help of a tweezer I removed the image from the stamper. I placed the decals on my nails painted with the gold polish and finished it with a top coat.
This is the final result. Considering that I am using this technique for the first time, I am pleased with the results.

All in all the stamper is very useful, because of it shape. I had to file down a little bit the surface of it because the image pattern didn't transferred on it completely, but after it, it worked perfectly. I have to mention that I used the scraper just once, because it scratches very badly the surface of the plate and that is why I used my usual plastic scraper to finish this manicure.

  2. I have ordered that same stamper and it had arrived yesterday. I can't wait to try it. It is good to know that it'll need some buffing.
    I like your decals. They look very festive.

  16. Én rá teszem a körmömre és a plusszt lereszelem körömreszelővel illetve letörlöm pemzlivel és körömtisztitóval. Előre levágni méretre eléggé nehéz lenne mivel kis vékony és ragacsos felületről beszélünk. Sok idő és türelem szükséges amig elkészűl és megszárad, de a végeredmény látványos, ezért néha érdemes vele foglalkozni.
