Rose Layered Stamping *Tutorial
Roses and leaves.
Wanted to add a little step by step. This is how to layer your nail stamps into one design.
Two Stamping Polishes (Pictured: Konad Pink and Light Green)
Two Stamp Designs
Clean up Brush
Acetone or Nail Polish Remover
Lets get started!
Step One: Paint all of your nails a solid color. This is China Glaze Life is Rosy from the new spring Avant Garden collection. Big thumbs up on all twelve colors by the way.
Step Two: Stamp a design over your nails. This is Bundle Monster plate BM-323 and Konad Stamping Polish in Pink. (Notice I smudged my accent nail a wee bit... Plan on covering that up in the next step! To smooth out the ridge you can actually use the lick your nail method. Kind of gross, and probably not too healthy to be licking paint, but it really works.)
Step Three: Add a coat of polish over part of your nail. This is China Glaze West Side Warrior.
Step Four: Stamp your second design over the second color. Full nail stamps are perfect for this because they have clean straight lines for borders. This design is Bundle Monster plate BM-19 and Konad Special Polish in Light Green.
Step Five: Sometimes, I don't get the stamps perfectly lined up. A little nail tape, can go a long way, in covering little imperfections, and giving a sharp divide.
Clean up any polish around your nail with an old makeup brush and some acetone.
Finally, add some top coat and brace yourself for... "How did you do that?"
