Do you remember what was my opinion on stamping one year ago or so? You don't? Well...I do.
To be short I'll just say one word : DIFFICULT. If you asked me what I thought about stamping this is the answer I would have given you...but now things have changed.
I didn't just learn to stamp right...but I started LOVING it. Now If you ask me to describe stamping I wouldn't use the word I used a year ago(I am not saying it isn't because sometimes i have to try 5-6 times until I get the design to transfer right from the plate to my nail) but I'd say something like : exciting, great, creative.
You can do a very large variety of designs using only one stamping plate - you can mix colours and designs exactly as you wish.
If you haven't started stamping yet- what have you been doing? Try it but be prepared to have patience because it takes some practice.
Today I want to show you a manicure I did using a stamping plate from my fav brand - MoyouNails
|This is the holo I used as a base colour- photographed yesterday, in the sun. |
I personally love this nail polish :x
|I stamped the design with the MoyouNails special nail polish and sealed the design with my |
all-time-favourite top coat from Farmec.
As you can see...from today post I started doing a new thing : I will be writing the name or the number of the nail polish on the photo.
Maybe like this it will be easier both for you and for me.
Next, I will show you what stamping plate I used for this manicure and some more designs I did with it.
I used MoyouNails no.122 (you can see it in the picture too) --->
I choose this plate for the geometric designs...and because I thought they would look good in different combination.
I wasn't wrong : they really do.
You can find the plate on MoyouNail.com
I've made many blog posts about the quality of the plates but I will tell you some words now too.
I haven't got ONE plate that doesn't work perfectly - yes, I had some problems transfering some designs BUT they worked out in the end with a lot of practice and also with the right stamper.
I am using the stamper I got from them- and I love it. It's not to hard not to squishy. I thing it's perfect.
Here are some other designs I did with MoyouNails no.122 :
