Today I have a review of some products that were kindly sent to me by Born Pretty Store for review.
You’ve probably seen that Crystal nail art stamper a are everywhere! I’ve been considering getting one for a while, and when Born Pretty offered to send me one for review I jumped at the chance. I’ve made attempts at stamping before, but I’ve never been very good.
The stamper (item #24059) itself is a good size, and the pad is clear and nice and squishy. It’s also completely clear, which means that you can see through so that you can know exactly where you are placing your design.
I started off by painting my nails with my base colours. I used a purple My Beauty Spot polish with Nubar Treasure layered overtop and OPI I Canolli Wear OPI. Next, I used liquid peel off tape (also from Born Pretty!) and applied it around my cuticles to limit clean up. I also discovered it’s much easier to do one hand at a time as sometimes the peel off tape sticks together and comes off.
Before applying the design to my nails, I tested it on a peice of paper to see how it would turn out. I used OPI Who You Callin’ Bossy as I don’t own any stamping polish.
Going one hand at a time, I applied the design to each nail. I am not someone who has an easy time with keeping things straight when stamping, but with this clear stamper it was so easy to know exactly where my design was going! Once I applied the design, I peeled off my peel off tape and applied to top coat to seal in my design. I finished off by cleaning up the rest of my cuticle area using a small brush dipped in acetone.
And the finished product!
I’m so impressed with this clear jelly stamper, I can’t recommend it enough! If you’ve been considering starting to stamp I would definitely suggest checking out the selection on Born Pretty Store! You can use my discount code COFFK31 to save 10% on your purchase!
