- APPLYING POLISH -
✅ Cover the whole design with nail polish, using a generous quantity. If you want to save some nail polish and if you are a bit more experienced with stamping you can also try to cover about half of the design and then drag the rest of the polish with the scraper to cover the whole design.
❌ Don't apply a thin layer of nail polish, as it will dry much faster.
- SCRAPING -
✅ Scrape gently once (preferably in a 45-degree angle), with a pressure similar to when you dust off the table 😉. Even if you see the design is not clean is fine, the streaks won't pick up.
❌ Don't press too hard against the plate while scraping, you don't need to scrape the design clean.
❌ Don't scrape backwards.
❌ Don't scrape several times in a row, you will make the polish dry faster.
- PICKING UP -
✅ Pick up with a smooth rolling motion.
✅ Pick up by pressing down gently.
❌ Don't press too hard while rolling the stamper, if the head is being squished that is too much pressure.
❌ Don't press moving your stamper in every direction. This is not the TV controller, it won't work by pressing like crazy.
❌ Don't roll the stamper back and forth, otherwise, you will stamp back on the plate.
❌ Don't wait too long before picking up or the design will dry.
- STAMPING -
✅ Stamp on your nail when it's touch dry. If you feel the nail is too smooth and the designs don't stick try applying top coat and stamp when it's still a bit tacky.
❌ Be careful not to press too hard and pierce the head of the stamper with your nail.
- EXTRA TIPS -
❗️Clear your stamper using a lint roller (or clear tape if you prefer). Don't clear the stamper with nail polish remover or acetone as this will harm the materials.
❗️Remover the back of the stamper (3 IN 1 ✦ SUPER CLEAR RECTANGULAR STAMPER & SCRAPER) for more precision.
❗️Store your stampers in a dry, cool place away from the sun and with the silicone head protected from the dust.
