Nail stamping is one of the latest fashionable nail art techniques. Appreciated by beautistas for its simplicity, but also for its speed, this technique does not require much training and will suit everyone, even those with semi-permanent nails. In this blog, we will explain what the nail stamping technique consists of and how to do it at home.
Nail stamping is a manicure technique that consists of decorating the nail using engraved metal plates to imprint designs or patterns on the nails. These patterns are varied: they can be flowers, dots, geometric patterns, abstract patterns, stripes, etc. It can be done on the fingernails or toenails. The principle of nail stamping is quite simple: all you have to do is take a stainless steel plate, on which the pattern you want to print on the nail is engraved, and transfer the pattern onto the nail using a specific rubber or silicone pad.
When starting out in nail stamping, it is possible to make the task easier by buying a stamping manicure kit. However, buying the supplies separately allows you to better adapt your equipment to what you are looking for, especially for the patterns and the size of the engraved plates.
To succeed in nail stamping, you have to have the hand to go quickly. Indeed, the varnish must be transferred from the stamp to the nail without drying in the meantime, so that the pattern is well printed. Another tip we can give you for successful nail stamping is to properly maintain your equipment. Indeed, if your stamps and engraved plates are in poor condition, this will affect the quality of the nail art and the definition of the patterns.
Nail stamping is one of the easiest nail art techniques to reproduce at home, even when you are just starting out. All you have to do is get the nail products, by buying a special nail stamping kit or by buying the different accessories separately, and in a few gestures, you’re done!
