It's nails time!


Hello!!!

So,i come with something i wanted to talk with you for a while,and it's nail stamping.
Some of you may have alrady heard about this,for others this may be a whole new term,but it's actually nothing scary or barbaric,it's actually something quit easy to do and it gives your nails a whole new level of beauty and fun,as long as you have the right tools to work with.

If you google it,the first name that will show off is Konad,they have the best and biggest variety of plates that are used to stamping,however,as they are not so easy to find in Portugal i came to find a much cheaper and still equally good solution in the Essence Nail Stamping Kit. Essence products are sold in the pharmacies of Continente and they are an European brand of make-up that's actually quite ship and has a very good quality. I got my Nail Stamping Kit for less then 4€,and it comes with the stamper, a scraper and a plate with some different images.
However i find that Essence lacks on variety when it comes to extra plates,which you can buy separately, so i'll be trying to buy myself some Konad plates around the internet or so,i have been seeing quite a few images i would like to try.

Below is an easy tutorial i found around YouTube and that can easily help you to understand better of what i'm talking about. =D




One thing i make different from the girl in the video,is that i don't use the q-tips, instead I wait 'til the end and clean the excess with a nail polish corrector pencil. I got this one, also from Essence, and it coasted me 3€,including 3 tips to subsitute.It's acetone free and has a slight cherry odor.


I hope you found this little tip of beauty helpful,i surely found my nails to be a lot more fun when i started using this method,instead of using plain colors only!

xoxo

  1. I so need to try that out... I love nail art!
    Although I'd really really love those huge Japanese-style nails with plushies, fruits, blah blah blah... they're completely useless, but so pretty! <3

    Also, I'm happy for you and you followers, you deserve the hype, girl! :D

  13. I searched for this technique when I made a post about decorated nails in my blog. I found nothing even similar to buy here in Brazil :/ I found a site that ships Konad stuff but it didn't have THE cool stamps.

    The flowers on your nails look so delicate!!!

  14. That sucks and it's weird knowing you guys have so many variety when it comes to nailpolishes. *hugs*
    Well,i'll see how much it weights,and how much it coasts to be shipped,maybe once i get some money i can gift you a little set,they are not that expensive after all.^^

  16. I'd never heard of this, it's a great idea. I just managed to grow out my nails and I'm having lots of fun painting them in loads of different ways.
