Saturday showers make way for indoor activities, namely a Nail Art! Make-A-Long at NYCResistor. Taking a rare opportunity to trek outside my creative comfort zone and into into a bordering borough, the 2-hour session provided the perfect distraction from the torrential downpour. DIY Nail Stamping was on the agenda and it proved to be easier than I imagined. Keep reading for the outcome and how to create your own...
My work area at the end of a long table at NYC Resistor
Stamper with design transferred from the plate
To create the "stamp," dab a generous amount of polish onto the chosen design on the plate. Use the credit card to squeegee the excess polish off the plate and quickly press the stamper onto the plate with the polish. Check the stamp to make sure the polish transferred well and roll onto your nail--That's it! Clean the plate and the stamper with a Q-Tip and acetone between each stamp and repeat the process for as many fingers as desired.
On my first attempt I decided to use Essie's Snap Happy--so uncharacteristically BRIGHT!
