First Attempt at Nail Stamping!

Hi guys! I recently ordered some nail stamping plates, along with the Konad stamper and scraper. I ordered a couple Konad plates, but mostly Bundle Monster & Cheeky plates. I had a hard time getting the stamp to transfer from the stamper onto my nail, but I worked with it. I started out with Essie's Play Date as my base and then used the Konad white special polish to stamp.

Below I did 2 coats of Play Date & I used BM-221 (a floral design). The first two are kind of shaded, while the third is in direct light.

As you can tell, my ring finger had a bit of smudging. My pointer and middle fingers turned out the best.

I'm looking forward to trying out more designs!
What do you think?

  2. I love the color combination that you chose. It looks so feminine and pretty. Great job on your first nail stamping! I wish I could say my first time looked half as good.
