Stamping Nail Art Tutorial – Tropical Fantasy

Nail Art Tropical FantasyI love nail art in general, and nail art stamping in particular.  It may take a little getting used to at first (and yes, I say that from experience) but the results can be amazing!

I have watched so many wonderful ladies on YouTube paint their nail art by hand, and I am in awe of them.  Unfortunately, I am not as talented — especially when it comes to painting my right hand.  I’m still working on it, but in the meanwhile, stamping is how I get my designs (the ones I wear out in public, at any rate, LOL).

I’ll do a stamping 101 post, but for now, I want to show you how to create this mani, which I call “Tropical Fantasy”.  It’s an easy design, and if you try it, you will be thrilled with the results.

Video Tutorial

For this video, I used a bright metallic pink and a yellow, along with a Konad black stamping polish.  The stamping plate is a Pueen Special Edition Encore Plate 2A.  The stamper I am using is an XL squishy stamper.

Stamping Plate Leadlight Lacquer 1 – Review and Demo

I am apparently on a Messy Mansion stamping plate kick (probably because I had a Messy Mansion haul, LOL).  I ordered this from the Messy Mansion website.  Although the company is based in Australia, there is a warehouse in the USA.

I have to say, I love the quality of these plates!  The images are wonderful for using the leadlight technique (as you might imagine), which was developed/popularized by Messy Mansion.

I’ll do my own video on the leadlight technique video soon, but meanwhile here’s the original video from Messy Mansion.

Quick Stats

Here are some quick stats on the stamping plate:

  • The plate is 12 cm long by 6 cm wide.   This is about the same size as a MoYou London plate.
  • The images are “buffet” style, and cover the full plate (except for a small outside margin).  This is great for those of us with wider or longer nails.

Video Review and Demo

I’ve done a video review and demo of the Leadlight Lacquer plate #1, so you can see what it’s like.

Stamping Plate Review: The Bridal Nail Plate 5

The Bridal Nail plate #5 is quickly becoming one of my favorite nail stamping plates!  I bought the plate at the Messy Mansion website (www.messymansion.com.au), and at the time of my purchase it was $10.  A note for those of you in the USA — she has a warehouse here in the States, so shipping is pretty quick.

Quick Stats

Here are some quick stats on the stamping plate from Messy Mansion:

  • The plate is 12 cm long by 6 cm wide.   This is about the same size as a MoYou London plate.
  • The full nail images are roughly 15 mm wide by 20 mm tall.  I have wide nail beds and they do fit (although just barely) my thumbnail.
  • There are 15 images on the plate.

Video Review and Demo

Here’s a review and demo of the stamping plate The Bridal Nail, plate #5.  You’ll see me doing some test stamps, as well as see some of the images as they are stamped on my nails.
