Full Image Stamping How-To

A couple weeks ago a nail buddy was asking me about the MoYou London full image stamping plates.  Specifically, she was asking me how to use these plates.  Here is an image in case you are not sure what I mean.


She ended up asking me to do a tutorial on how to use these plates.  I figured she couldn't be the only one wondering how to use these plates, so why not!  

The idea behind these full image plates is to give the user lots of variety in stamping.  There are so many manicure ideas in this one plate.  You get to choose how to create your scene!

I used all Bettina lacquers in this manicure, starting with two coats of Marshmallow.


Of course, before you start stamping you should have an idea of what you want to do.  Remember, stamping requires that you work fast!  I decided to use a different image for each nail and I used Birds.

Apply

Scrape

Pick Up Image
(I wasn't fast enough and the polish was drying already, hence bad pick up)

Each nail has different image:


Next I choose accent images to stamp over the base image.  I used FlowersOcean and Pink Bikini.




I ended up with the following design:


I had to add some extra touches to the design!






Don't be intimated by these plates!  There are so many fun and exciting ideas on one plate.  If you do purchases the plates, my recommendation is to play around with them.  Don't limit yourself to one image. Get a bunch of lacquers and stamp away.  The plates encourage creativity...HAVE FUN!

I would love to see what you come up with.  Share your design on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram!
