Techy Grids and Gold Tips

As Daisy mentioned, Allison of Born Pretty sent us some items to review. This time around, I’ll be showing off a stamped look using their stamping tool and one of the plates that they carry. Just a note though, this is actually my first time attempting to stamp on my nails so I had a few hit and misses as I was learning how to use the tool. The idea is simple, it just takes a bit of practice to use.

The 2 piece Practical Nail Stamper and Scraper is item #15851, and the Nail Stamp Template I used is QA97 which is item #15613. More information available on their product pages. You can’t go wrong with the prices either because each of these are definitely affordable. But if you like a sweeter deal, you can get 10% off using our coupon code DGG10 at Born Pretty Store.

So there’s several designs on the plate. I attempted to try the cherries, but either the polish consistency wasn’t right or my technique just wasn’t working. I couldn’t get the cherries design onto my stamper. I then decided to move to the other grid-like design with a gold polish that I know works well. I managed to not have too many mess ups, but it takes a few tries. Overall the product does what it’s supposed to and I like having fun design options without freehanding everything.

First off, I applied a base color on my nails and added a top coat. To use their stamper, I painted polish onto the design I wanted. With the scraper at a 45° angle, I scraped away any excess polish. I placed my stamper onto the design firmly, and transferred it. I then placed the stamper onto my nail in a rocking motion and transferred the design. Tada! Design transferred. Make sure to add a top coat.
