Hello again! Today I have this fun rainbow reverse stamping design. This is the first time I’ve done the reverse stamping technique, and while I kinda messed up one step (watch the video if you want to see it) overall I really like the technique.
Since I didn’t really know what I was doing I didn’t want to do a full hand, so I kept it to an accent nail for this design. Once again, I used a plate I received in exchange for my honest review from the Born Pretty Store, plate BP-L052. I used nail polish to fill in the design, and would like to try the technique again with acrylic paint as well. Check out the video to see the process.
I didn’t wait for the polish on the stamp to dry, so it got a little gooey as I tried to press it onto my nail but it turned out okay. Next time, I’ll wait for the stamp to dry more and use a sticky base coat on my nail to help it adhere.
I had a lot of trouble picking this one up with my clear stamper, and had to try about 8 times before I finally got the full design. I think clear stampers are better at picking up smaller designs rather than full nail designs, or maybe it’s my technique? Or maybe it’s just my stamper. I’ve tried priming it using a magic eraser, and it’s okay but still doesn’t pick up as nicely as I want it to. Any recommendations?
As with all the plates I received from the Born Pretty Store, I really like the quality and designs on this plate. The designs pick up really nicely with my marshmallow stamper, and with a bit more effort using my clear stamper. The price is great, and as long as you’re not impatient, they’re a good deal. And really, don’t we all need practice in cultivating patience? 😉
That’s it for me. Have a good one, until next time!
