Nail Stamping - My First Attempt

nail stamping, nail art, nail polish, nails


I love painting my nails. They're never going to look as good as if I get them done professionally, but I really don't like the aftercare and the state of my nails after having them done, plus I can't afford to get them done regularly, so I try to stick to doing my own nails.

NailPolish.co.uk are a brand new website offering a wide range of luxury brands, products and collections, with speedy delivery.

They recently teamed with MoYou London to send me a fantastic little box of goodies for me to try.
Let me show you what I received...

I chose 3 seasonal nail polish shades from OPI: Get In The Expresso Lane, a rich dark coffee brown, First Date at the Golden Gate, a classic red, and Muir Muir on the Wall, a seasonal plum.

I also received an Elegant Touch Nail Apothecary Base Coat, a selection of nail art tools and a Stamping Set from MoYou London including a tropical collection stamping plate, scraper, rectangle stamp and quickly little instruction booklet with easy to follow directions on how to stamp.

I've never tried Nail Stamping before. I always see people with cute nail art and think, 'I'll NEVER manage that!' I'm not the most creative when it comes to my nails. But I'm intrigued to give it a go.

I prepped my nails, used the base coat and chose the OPI Get In The Expresso Lane (which looks a lot darker here in the pictures than on the nails), then set out the stamping set. It was a little tricky trying to find a pattern that didn't look too summery, but using a white polish from my collection I had a little play around and this is what I came up with...

It was super easy to do. Simply paint over the design on the plate with your chosen polish, scrape over with the scraper then press the stamper on to the plate before gently rolling it over your nail. Then a sweep of top coat. Ta-dah!

It's a great way of jazzing up your nails and really easy to do.
They aren't perfect, but for my first attempt I think they're quite cute. :)

  8. These are so pretty, you did an amazing job! I love how festive they look too. I can never be bothered to paint my nails, I take ages to do them and they end up looking all chipped within a day or 2. I am a bit lazy when it comes to these things though!xx #KCACOLS
