Hello there 🙂
I’ve attempted to create DIY stamping decals, it looked so easy on YouTube tutorials. It’s not easy. Then again they are experts/gurus… but at least I had fun trying! (Please excuse the smudges! That’s what impatience do to nailart :p )
Graphic prints: Moyou London Princess collection 11 (for pointer)
Ice cream cone and Lolly prints: Moyou London Suki collection 3 (for middle and ring fingers)
Things I’ve learned:
- Use any plate! Just pick a design that you can colour like a picture from the colouring book!
- Stick with proper stamping polish for the stamping part (the outline), it will make life easier. I’ve used normal polishes for the fill in colours.
- Have patience! It could take some practicing.
- Again, have patience and wait for everything to dry before proceeding to the next step (I did rush and it ruin the decal and my painted nail! ).
There are a few methods in how to create stamping decals. Pick the one you think you can manage/master!
For this manicure, I’ve used Barry M’s Silks in Mist and Meadow. This will be my last summer inspired NOTD as it’s not summer where I live now 😛
It’s almost sad having to pack away my summer bright colours. I’ve enjoyed summer nail arts. Next nail post? Autumn stamping manicure in full throttle!
Here’s another photo before I decide to add the ice cream cone and lolly print 😛
Until then, take care 🙂 Thanks for reading!
