Nail Stamping

Cutesy Halloween Stamped Manicure

October 17, 2013

Sorry for not posting for SO long, guys! I’ve been posting nail pictures on my Instagram, though. Be sure to check those out.

Anyhow, this is definitely not one of the gruesome, scary Halloween manicures out there. Yikes! I’m definitely more of a Casper the Friendly Ghost type of Halloween celebrator. :)

Here are the details on each finger…

All nails were topped with Seche Vite topcoat. :)

    Love the candy corn. Is that a stamp? How did you
    do it.

      I painted the tip of the nail white and the other end orange. Then I applied a topcoat and let it dry completely. Then I put two bands of tape around the center of the nail, and painted the yellow stripe in the center. Before the yellow dried, I peeled off the tape masks.

    Hi Kristina! Quick question: I always have the problem that when I use tape, it peels away the nail varnish, e.g when doing a French manicure……is there a special tape that you use? Also, I find that because I have large nails, the stamps don’t really cover my whole nail and I’m left with gaps at either side. Is there anything that you can suggest? Thanks for taking the time to read this. Danielle :-)

      I usually put the tape on the back of my hand first to take away some of the stickiness. That usually works.

      As for the designs being too small, you might just have to be a little creative… Maybe stamp it at a diagonal, or something like that. My thumbs are usually just a tad bit too wide, too.

    THANK YOU — after 52 years of living I decided it is finally time to stop tearing my nails. Of course, accidentally slamming the thumb nail in a door helped make the decision– After reading all about Konad stamp art & realizing that you are really into stamping (a past time hobby) I devoured everything. After your email response, I decided I was coming to the “dark side” LOL I went for my first manicure (that was for me not a wedding!) I went in thinking I will not come out with clear or pale pink…I chose a nude and a blue color. I did it! I came out of the nail salon wearing something called “Rocker Blue” & it shimmers . I can’t stop looking at my nails. Embracing color on my finger nails that are short, short IS AWESOME! I can’t wait to change the color but I think I should wait at least another day. Thanks for changing my life with all your special tips & videos!!!!!
