On today's blog, I share a floral manicure using an advanced nail stamping technique.
I did floral manicure for #31DC2014 on Instagram. I started this manicure with 2 coats of 'Rain Storm' by SinfulColors Professional. This polish is a dusty blue colored creme. I love this color and the formula as well. It provides great coverage with just one easy coat and no pooling at the cuticles.
Polish shown is 'Rain Storm' by SinfulColors Professionals.
I created the rose stamps using a technique called advanced or reverse stamping. I started by transferring the image from the stamping plate onto my stamper. To do so, I used black stamping polish from Mundo de Unas and stamping plate SEA02 from Pueen's Encore Collection.
Once the image dried on the stamper (3 to 5 minutes), I filled it with acrylic paint and let dry for another 3 to 5 minutes while on the stamper. I finished the stamp by applying a coat of fast dry top coat and carefully peeling off the stamp from the stamper. My favorite one is from Seche Vite.
Polish shown is Seche Vite's top coat.
To apply the stamp, I first trimmed off some of the excess image with scissors. I then applied a layer of top coat on my nail and placed the stamp immediately after, I finished by trimming off the remaining excess and by applying a final layer of top coat.

This was one of my more advanced manicure and I absolutely love how it turned out! How did you like it? Thanks for reading!
