Fall Stamping Decal

bellaluna-near-dark

Hi guys! Today I'm going to bring you the tutorial for the decal accent nail on my swatch of Near Dark from Bellaluna Cosmetics. I used all the colors from the collection as well as M Polish Elizabethan to stamp with. The image is from BP-48 and I used the jelly stamper from Chelle We Stamp. Scroll below for the video and step by step instructions.

Step by step instructions
  1. Apply M Polish Elizabethan to the image and scrape.
  2. Gently but quickly roll the stamper over the image to pick up.
  3. Wait a few minutes for the polish to dry and seal with clear polish (base or topcoat).
  4. Once that's dry, start coloring in with the different colors.
  5. Not shown in the video, seal with clear polish and wait for it to dry.
  6. While you wait, lay down a white base color on your nails.
  7. When you're ready to use the decal, apply base coat to your nails so they are tacky. 
  8. Remove the decal from the stamper, cut to size, and apply to your nail.
  9. I use a stick dipped in acetone to dissolve the excess, file down any remaining free edge, then clean up with small brush.
  10. Apply topcoat and you're done!




It's not a perfect decal, I went outside the lines in the beginning and didn't notice until I was editing the macro shot. I still love how all the colors coordinate together so well.

I purchased the BP plate, the stamper and the stamping polish myself. The Bellaluna Cosmetics fall collection was provided for review. You can find those colors at http://bellalunacosmetics.storenvy.com.
