Nail Stamping

Orange Diagonal Chevron

April 19, 2012

Note: These are the same colors I used on Julie’s nails in the far right image in this post. I was inspired after doing her nails last weekend and tried a new version with the chevron stamp at a diagonal. :)

Base Color: Essie Orange, It’s Obvious
Stamping Color: Konad Special Polish in White
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster BM-201

      I don’t think it does, you’d ruin the stamper if you buff it too much I have done it on mine and I did it bfnuifg with an eraser (yup, a regular school eraser). If you’re not too sure, just buff the stamper little by little with a fine grit nail file. Good luck

    Love this! The contrast looks amazing and a very creative way of using the stamp. I’ve just discovered you have a nail blog . . . after years of reading your papercraft blog. I was thinking how cool this would be in shades of taupe – kind of like wheel tracks!

    Glad to find this site!

    I looked at the stamps and I really like how you didn’t just throw the stamp on and cover the whole nail. It’s more interesting to the side like that.
