Tutorial: Nail Art Stamping

Welcome to the Art of Nail Stamping!

Ever wonder how people get those little intricate designs flawlessly printed on their nails?

Most of the time nail artists use a technique called
“Nail Stamping”

It’s exactly that… There are these little metal plates with patterns engraved on them.  All you have to do is paint your nail polish over the design, squeegee the polish, press your stamp onto the plate and then transfer the design from the stamp onto your nail.

It seems simple but it definitely takes some practice.
