SEA SHELLS NAILS 🐚 Reverse Stamping Nail Design

Hello everyone! For this wonderful sea shells nail design Lou used:

  1. UNT peel off base coat

  2. Halo Dye Blossom polish inks from Rosalind

  3. Stamping plate Uber Chic 'Seashells Aplenty'

  4. Iridescent Glitter

  5. Hit the Bottle stamping polish 'As Black As Night' and 'Stonewashed & Windswept'

  6. Water Tight' waterbased smear free topcoat- A must have top coat for when you are working with foils, pigments and it's a great non-smear top coat to apply over your stamping!

  7. ORLY "Bonder" basecoat (Aussies get it here)

  8. Pueen Cosmetics latex tape liquid peel off & cuticle guard

  9. Fast Drying Top Coat

Basic step by step instructions:

  1. Apply base coat and let it dry completely.

  2. While your nails are drying, protect skin around your nails with a coat of a liquid latex.

  3. Apply inks over your base.

  4. Paint lines with the top coat and sprinkle them with glitter. Let dry a bit and then dust off the excess glitter with a fan brush.

  5. Apply stamping polish to the chosen image on the plate. Use the scraper angled at approximately 45 degrees to remove any excess polish off of it. Gently roll the stamper on the image to pick up the design.

  6. Fill in the image with the polishes you like and let dry (do not over dry it though).

  7. Apply a layer of a top coat and let it dry till it's still a bit tacky but not wet-wet. Lou used ‘Bonder’ by Orly, although it's a basecoat, when it dries it's still a bit sticky and that helps for the stamp to transfer to the nail better.)

  8. Using a little pressure and gentle rolling motion stamp the image onto the nail.

  9. Finally, after cleaning up around your nails, apply topcoat to seal and protect your design.
