I feel like reverse stamping was all the rage for a while, and I wasn’t able to try it because of my super lame stamping plates! Well, if you saw my last post, you know that now I’m 21 plates richer and I finally got to try reverse stamping!
So, my pointer finger is two coats of Zoya Purity, my middle is two coats of China Glaze At Vase Value and my pinky is two coats of Zoya Ziv (bonus: my thumb is two coats of Zoya Belinda).
For the reverse stamp, I used Purity for the actual stamp, then I applied some Essie Good To Go. Once that was dry, I filled in the pattern with Ziv, Belinda and At Vase Value. Once that was set, I applied a coat of Purity over top. I let that totally dry for at least 10 minutes, peeled and applied! I applied it over a coat of base coat. Then cut the access and cleaned up the edges.
On my pointer and middle I decided to add gold triangles to go with the stamp. Then added a coat of Good To Go on all nails.
I have to say… it’s not my cleanest work, but it’s pretty cool. I definitely need practice with the technique, but I’m excited about the prospects! And I love those triangle studs! What do you guys think?
