I have been full of ideas for nail art so I have been trying different options and experimenting with nail art designs. This time I decided to try my MoYou stamping template. It is basically a metal plate engraved with different designs. I have a small template to experiment and then go up to the larger plates with more designs. It looks so easy when you see somebody demonstrating it! They make it look so easy. You apply a special stamping nail polish onto the plate and then you have a scraper and swipe across the polish to remove the excess. You have a clear plastic stamp and press onto the plate to collect the design and press onto your nail. Practice makes perfect!
The tricky bet is scraping just enough polish to apply onto the nail. Scrape too much and you don’t have enough to pick up the design. As always I applied protective base coat and then applied Mavala ‘St-Germain’, which is a beautiful burgundy colour with a tiny hint of purple in it. It’s a lovely autumnal colour which you can also wear in the summer.
I then stamped a floral design over the dried colour and waited for few minutes before applying a top coat to the nails.
Voila! a quick, easy and pretty design for the nails!
