Nail Art Tutorial: Brightly Stamped Nails

Nail Art Tutorial: Brightly Stamped Nails

02.17.14

By James

Gin of Baroque Fool gave us a something new — a manicure created using only European brands of polish. She combined them together with a stamp, and voilà!

  • Supplies needed:

     

    • Base color: Catrice Inner Purple of Trust
    • Glitters: Golden Rose Carnival No. 06 and No. 15
    • Stamps: Essence Stamp Me! Black and plate QA66

     

    SLIDE 1 OF 5
  • Step 1:

    Before you start, try your color combinations on a piece of paper to ensure the pattern doesn't overshadow the glitter. 

    I used a shiny and bright fuchsia from Catrice called Inner Purple of Trust. This is two layers and no top coat. 

    SLIDE 2 OF 5
  • Step 2:

    Add one layer of glitter. I used Golden Rose Carnival No.15.

    SLIDE 3 OF 5
  • Step 3:

    Add the second layer of glitter of another color. I used Golden Rose Carnival No. 06. After it dries, add some top coat to make the nail surface flat. That way, if you mess up the stamp, you can wipe it off.

    SLIDE 4 OF 5
  • Step 4:

    Apply your stamp. I recommend that you use some dark stamping polish if the base is very bright and colorful. Also it's better to use a pattern that is made of thin lines so the glitter doesn't get lost in the stamp. Don't forget to apply a last layer of top coat. Done!
