Stamp choice for nails

  1. Process of transferring of drawing on a nail by means of a special stamp is called as "stemping". The technology originates in South Korea, local masters of Konad firm started delivering on counters the adaptation for a decor.

  3. During purchase study price range. The adaptations made in China stand much cheaper. However their quality leaves much to be desired. If you need a stamp on 1 time, it is possible to buy similar model.
  4. Take from packing a metal disk with drawings. Pay attention to an ornament contour, at good adaptations it is accurately looked through. Thus the stamping possesses sufficient depth for penetration of a varnish.
  5. On a disk with drawings there shouldn't be visible defects, scratches and other damages. The Chinese manufacturing firms do low-quality plates with patterns. Their edges which aren't perfected therefore are probability to wound a hand.
  6. Examine a stamp. Its surface usually smooth, dense and elastic. Too "friable" copies won't provide uniform transferring of drawing from a plate on a nail. As a rule, when using low-quality adaptations the contour is washed away.
  7. Also the scraper which cleans surplus of a varnish from a figured plate is included in the package. If the free edge of a scraper has jags, you damage a disk, further dressing will become impossible.

Tools for dressing of nails a stamp

  2. In the course of work you need to clean a varnish from this disk. Manipulations are carried out by means of a special scraper — a skraber. It goes in a set therefore the adaptation doesn't need to be bought for an additional fee.
  3. Directly stamp is required. The head of the main tool has to be moderately dense and elastic.
  4. Also the basis under basic layers (a colourless varnish), the finish, a varnish basis and a varnish will be required, to it contrast. Whenever possible choose the acrylic varnishes developed for a decor by a stamp.

Technology of use of a stamp for nails

How to use a stamp for nails

  1. First of all, you need to prepare nails for the subsequent manipulations. For this purpose prepare a tray on the basis of a camomile, add a little soda and sea salt. Lower fingers in structure, wait a third of hour.
  2. After passing of the set time wipe hands a towel. Remove a cuticle to the basis of a nail bed. Cut off it tweezers or the trimmer. Give to nails the necessary size, correct a form a glass file.
  3. Remove an old varnish special liquid. Wash up hands antibacterial soap, process them an anti-septic tank (peroxide, alcohol, vodka and so forth). Wait for full drying of nails.
  4. Put the first layer of base under a varnish, such course will prevent damage of a plate. Now distribute primary color on which in the future the ornament of a contrast shade will be represented on nails.
  5. Prepare a disk for work, it goes in a set with a stamp. Choose a pattern which you wish to transfer to nails. Distribute the second varnish (contrast tone) on drawing. Wait until all cavity becomes impregnated.
  6. Take a skraper (scraper), walk them on a metal disk, collecting the varnish remains. You will see that the part of a pigment was late in a plate cavity.
  7. You carry out manipulations carefully, the edge of a scraper has to be directed to a disk at an angle of 40 — 45 degrees. If you have no scraper, similarly it is possible to carry out manipulations with an old plastic card (discount, debit and so forth).
  8. Some sets assume presence of the holder for a disk in a set. The adaptation fixes a plate therefore when using a skraper the disk doesn't go here and there. Such feature allows to achieve the necessary result, excepting damages of a plate.
  9. Take a stamp, be convinced of the hardness of own hand. One accurate movement press an adaptation head to the chosen drawing. Wait for 3 — 5 seconds that the varnish was transferred to the tool. Estimate result, drawing has to imprint accurately and brightly.
  10. If everything is all right, begin transfer of an ornament on a plate. Press a stamp to a nail surface the blocking movement (at first the first edge, then the middle, the second edge). All manipulations are carried out slowly, in one step.
  11. Wait still some time. Take a Q-tip, moisten it in liquid for removal of a varnish. Wipe okolonogtevy the roller if you soiled it. Now wipe acetone a stamp, a scraper and a plate, deleting a pigment.
  12. Similarly make design on other nails, including standing (at will). You can combine drawings among themselves, wiping a stamp after each ornament postponed for a nail. When all fingers are decorated, cover nails with one layer of the finish, dry up.

Practical recommendations

How to use a stamp for nails

  1. Choose a dense and saturated varnish for filling of a cavity of a disk. You need to transfer drawing from the first. The structure shouldn't be too liquid, differently it will flow out from a cliche, being smeared on a stamp. Also the varnish shouldn't be excessively dense. In that case it won't fill an engraving cavity, leaving gaps in drawing.
  2. Act with a scraper very quickly. If the pigment dries up, it will leave in camber drawing. After a covering the finish the end result will look ugly.
  3. When you start transferring drawing to a nail, you keep a stamp in vertical situation. Have the adaptation perpendicular to a plate surface, then press. In the course of transferring slightly rotate a stamp the pendulum movements.
  4. Before purchase estimate quality of a rubber head of a stamp. It shouldn't be too rigid or, on the contrary, soft. The first option will provide only partial transferring. The second tool will smear an ornament.

Choose a good stamp for nails. The metal plate with the pleasant patterns, and also a scraper for removal of the remains of a varnish from an engraving cavity has to be included in the package. Before dressing prepare nails, make manicure. You hold a stamp vertically, be convinced that before drawing a pattern your hand won't tremble.
