Tutorial: Stamping Nail Art

Hi there, starshines! A couple of months ago, I posted about the stamping nail art kit that I bought from the online store MeTime Manila. Read that post *here* if you haven't already. Anyway, some of my readers were curious as to how the stamping kit works. I'm not a pro when it comes to nail art but I've watched a few vids about stamping. So today, I'm gonna show you how I use my stamping kit. This is a video tutorial, by the way. I found it hard to take pictures while I was stamping away.

Here's a sample stamped design on my index fingernail.


A stamping kit consists of a stamper, a scraper and an image plate. Will explain the use of each on the video tutorial below.


If you wanna know how to use these tools, keep on reading :)

The polish I'm using is a legit stamper polish. Stamping polishes are thicker than regular ones, making them adhere to the image really well. Some polish brands work for stamping, though. I just haven't tested the ones I have if they will work for stamping because this is my first time stamping anything on my nails.


Watch my tutorial below to know how to stamp the design on your nails :)


So basically, what you need to do are the following.

  1. Apply a coat of polish over the image, just enough to cover the whole image. Don't apply it too thickly.
  2. Scrape the excess polish off the plate and remove any polish remaining outside the image.
  3. Pick up the image using the stamper by pressing the stamper firmly onto the image plate.
  4. Transfer the image to your nail. Make sure the whole design gets transferred.

You can buy stamping nail art kits like the one I got or any other nail tools online. Or you can go to Landmark Department Store (Trinoma) 'cause I saw stamping kits and nail art brushes and many other tools there. That's the only place I've seen so far that have this. I don't go to many places, you know. ;]

So that's it! I hope you found this tutorial helpful. Enjoy stamping! :)
