I have been obsessed with geometric shapes lately, so when Bundle Monster sent me their 25-piece Nail Art Stamping Image Plates to try out, I went straight for the chevron design. Now I have to admit, this is a lot more difficult than it looks, but the end result is worth it!
Step 2: Paint a thick layer of your second nail polish color onto the stamp plate. I used another OPI color called “Pepe’s Purple Passion.” It’s slightly glittery.
Step 3: Quickly scrape off the excess nail polish with the scraping tool. I find it’s best to scrape twice.
Step 4: Roll the stamper over the image starting from one side, and press firmly.
Step 5: Quickly roll the image onto the nail starting from one side. Don’t worry about getting the nail polish on your finger.
Step 6: Wash the nail polish off of the plate and stamper and continue with each nail. You have to clean the tools after each application.
Step 7: Use a Q-tip and nail polish remover to remove the polish from around your nails.
Step 8: Wait 10 to 15 minutes and then apply a clear coat over your nails. Only do one or two strokes, or the chevron design will smear.
And that’s that! Don’t give up if you don’t get it perfect the first time.
