In the video below i have a sped up version showing you how to make your own nail decalPS.. if you don’t have a nail stamping mat, you really need one!  Not only do they protect your surface but they make creating nail art designs much easier!
They’re a great place to practice and layout designs plus, it’s the best place to make decals!

There are a bunch of silicone nail stamping mats on the market… Here are a few that i’ve found.

Uber Mat – $17

Take a look at the video below & have a great time stamping!!!

Creating Decals on a Silicone Mat:

  1. paint a clear base coat on your workshop mat & wait for it to dry (approx. 1 min)
  2. apply your polish to your nail stamping plate
  3. scrape
  4. quickly pick up your design using your nail stamp
  5. quickly stamp your design over your clear base coat on your mat… if you wait too long your design may not transfer
    Here’s the creative part…
  6. If you have a pattern that allows you to color in the lines… using a thin paint brush pick some colors and paint them over your design…. And WAIT to dry!
  7. Once your top colors are dry gently peel your nail decal off your mat using an orange stick … or something that won’t tear the polish
  8. Trim your decal with a scissor… and apply it to your nail
  9. Clean up any overlaps with some acetone and a q-tip
  10. Protect your design with 1 coat of your favorite top coat!
