Stamping tricks

Any manicure requires training. From the first time you will not get a beautiful print, so you need to be patient. Masters of nail art recommend the following:

  • Practice stamping for marigolds on the cover that needs to be removed. So you get the hang of holding the stamp, working with the scrapers and printing patterns.
  • Carefully choose a liquid that removes the remnants of gel-varnish from the plate. As part of the funds should not be oil, because the figure will be indistinct.
    Cover-the basis of trying to choose without sparkles. Images look beautiful on contrast gel-lacquer, glitter make them vague.
  • The paint from the scrapper you used was wiped with a napkin. Do not wait until it dries.
  • On a metal disc, the varnish dries faster than on the nails. The picture should be transferred as soon as possible, otherwise it will not be fully visible.
  • Do not work near an air conditioner, an open window, in a warm room. You will not have time to stamp stamping.
  • Paint or shellac applied over the entire surface of the stencil plate. So he will evenly enter the indentations. It is better to immediately think about the angle of placing the picture on the nails.
  • Do not put cream on your hands, so stamping is not printed.
  • Removing the remains of the paint can be made with a cotton swab soaked in a nail polish remover. Try applying strips of scotch to the skin or disc, and then remove. But this is aerobatics.
  • The image is covered with paint extremely neatly. Try lifhak from the masters of manicure: apply to the plate-stencil fixer.

Quality and accurate nail stamping design is possible, if you choose the right colors. Stay on the acrylic lacquer - the drawings will be colorful and bulky.

How to choose the right varnish?

Usually, the stamping kit contains acrylic or gel based paints. If they are over or you have purchased a kit without colors, look for an alternative. When choosing a varnish, which will make patterns, pay attention to the following:

  • Consistency. A dense tool will ensure the clarity of the drawings, will not spread and prevent blurry prints.
  • Pigmentation. Play on the contrasts: a manicure should have clear boundaries of the picture and background. Selecting close on the shades of varnish, you risk getting a blurry design.
  • Basis. It is allowed to use a glossy coating, but the matte background looks best.

Want to work with paints? No problem! Decorative coating allows you to create unprecedented beauty patterns. Acrylic compositions are relatively inexpensive and sold in sets. You do not need to look for a bright tube, they are sold in all cosmetics stores.

Please note that acrylic paint can easily carry a large pattern. Thin lines and miniature elements are easier to carry with varnishes.

Fashion accents

  • Thoughtful geometry. Strict stripes, triangles, squares and figures look modern and unusual.
  • Exquisite vintage. Lacy patterns, openwork nail plate, coquettish fragment on the tips of the marigolds at the peak of fashion.
  • Predatory animalistics. Animal print is again in fashion that will please lovers of manicure a la zebra, a tiger or a leopard and even an imitation of snake skin.
Those who are wary of experiments with stamping, it is recommended to refer to the classic combinations of black and metallic, black and nude, negative space( partially visible areas of the nail).
