Adventures in Stamping Part 2

I’m back with the second part of my stamping adventures.  Head over to read Part 1 if you missed it :)

I’m here to show off the third and final stamping plate I received from Llarowe.  This one has a sugary sweet theme to it and was cute as can be!

The Plate:

The Results:

This is my third successful stamping attempt – I actually did it much quicker than before and no mess ups!  I love the 2 little flowers on my ring finger and how all the detail of the stems came out!  I used Konad Special Nail Polish in White for this set! Also, I won’t lie, I was all set to make this a colorful stamping experience, but I chickened out and decided to stick to basics I know.  Soon though – I promise!

This is the LeaLaC 3 plate and retails for $5.00

I’m going to share a few tips some close friends gave me for stamping (that were important) :

  • Make sure polish base color is completely dry
  • Use a fast dry top coat over base color, this way if you mess up stamping, you can lightly wipe the image away without having to start the base color over
  • ROLL the stamper from left to right (or right to left), this will transfer the full image easier and with all detail still intact.
  • Allow image polish to dry before adding a top coat, otherwise you chance smearing the image.
  • Take your time!

Now I’ve semi mastered the small images, I think I’m ready for the Full Nail Image type plates!

You can find these image plates, as well as others, in Llarowe’s Shop.  Small plates are $5.00 and full image plates are $20.00

The image plates were designed as a collaboration by Leah Ann Llarowe, Laura Braga de Pinho and her mother Celia.
