Skull Nail Art

Happy Mani Monday! How was your weekend? The fiancé and I braved the gross weather on Saturday to go see some wedding invitations. It's crazy how many options there are!

I am SO excited to share today's mani with you because I tried nail stamping for the first time ever! Okay that's a lie -  I tried it last week and got frustrated so I gave up. But I tried again today and figured it out. The clear jelly stamper and stamping plate are both from Born Pretty Store. Since next week is Halloween I tried out the skulls. This design is so fun!

The gorgeous holo polish on my nails is ILNP Mega (X) and yes, it is blindingly amazing and sparkly in the sun.

Here's how stamping works:
1. Apply base coat or regular polish on the nail.
2. Apply the nail polish to desired image on a plate.
3. Scrape excess polish off quickly.
4. Immediately press the stamper with a gentle rolling motion to pick up the design. The image will be transferred onto the stamp.
5. Stamp the image on your nail with the same gentle rolling motion. The image will then be transferred on your nail.
6. After stamping nail art, apply top coat.

I hope you give nail stamping a try! It was definitely out of my comfort zone but I'm so glad I stuck with it because the outcome is worth it. Btw, when you place an order with BPS make sure you use my discount code ASYW10 for 10% off!
