How to do Nail Stamp Decals

Hello dear readers!

As I promised, here is the tutorial on how to make nail decals by using designs from nail art plates.
I will describe all the steps below the image.
Step1: Transfer your favorite image onto a nail stamper of your choice. I used a small soft stamper and  a bird design from Stamping plate XL M using Nabi black as my stamping nail polish.

Step2: With the design still on the stamper, paint inside the image using a small brush or with your nail polish brush. Nail polish or acrylic colors can be used. Let dry. *Cover the design using a clear topcoat and let dry. I used Out the Door fast dry top coat. it makes this process much faster ;)

Step3: Once the design is dry, peel off using tweezers (or in this case, my own nails).

Step4: Apply clear topcoat on your nail color base. This step is important so that the surface is sticky enough for the decal to stick on your nail. *Make sure to let dry the topcoat a little bit before applying the decal, it should be dry to the touch but a little bit sticky. Place the decal on your nail and smooth it out carefully to get rid of creases or air bubbles.

Step5: Apply clear topcoat to protect and give shine to your decal. You can add other details before applying topcoat.

I hope this tutorial will be useful to you and that you now will be able to try this nail art ;)
