Hey - i am 26 years old and i live in the Uk. I discovered Konad around October 2010 , and my bank balance has yet to recover. i have since collected a very large collection of fauxnads and Konads. the goal for this blog is simple - (1) Further explore the world of nail art stamping. (2) To keep a record of all my experiments with stamping. (3) To show you the potential each stamp has. (4) To show you that you don't have to be a 'Konading' expert to have fun! =)

Tutorial - How to make Stamping Decals.

Hey Guys!

Here's my third tutorial -  I've constructed a step by step guide to show 
you -  How to make Stamping Decals.

So lets get started shall we - Before we start you need to 
grab the following :

  - A Squishy Stamper.
 - Black Stamping Polish.
 - A Image Plate.
- Nail Polish Remover.

- Tweezers.

- Nail Art Brush / Or Dotting Tool.

- A Scraper.

- Top Coat and Base coat.

- Nail polish in colors of your choice.
- Scissors.


Step 1 (Below)

Apply a base coat to your nails - then paint your nails 
........... Then (this is important)  make sure you allow your nails to dry.

Step 2 (Below)

Stamp your selected image onto your stamper 
 *Do Not Apply this then to your nails*

.... Then allow to dry.

Step 3 (Below)

Once your Image is dry - You can then apply some colour !!! =D.

Once you have selected the appropriate nail polish/ Acrylic Paints - You 
can colour in your image with your Nail Art Brush/ Or
 Dotting tools (I prefer Dotting tools for this ).

There is no reason you couldn't use Nail Art Pens for this either.
.......Then allow this to dry

Step 4 (Below)

One your image is dry - Apply a top coat (I used a Poshe top coat here) 
Make sure you leave a good boarder around the edge 
of your design. This will help, when you lift the image up.

Now its really important to allow this to dry.

Step 5 (Below)

Relax...Watch an episode of a TV series your watching or listen to
 some music with a cup of tea =D

You need to allow your Image to completely Dry

* Do not be fooled by the edges lifting of your stamper - If in doubt
 leave it to dry for a while further *

* Ideally you should be leaving your stamping decals to dry for 
30 minutes to an Hour*

When your Image is dry - You can then use your 
tweezers to go around the image.

  The image should lift off easily. Remove the image gently.

Step 6 ( Below)

 Apply a fast drying top coat & allow this to dry ( This needs to be a
 bit tacky (Basically, if you touch it with your fingertips, you need to see that your finger print is left on your nail)  then it's the perfect time to stamp)


You can now prepare to apply the Image to your nails - I used 
 scissors to trim mine slightly ( I have small I 
felt this was essential ).

Step 7

Apply the Image to your nails

You can smooth this with a nail art brush or your finger.

Step 8 (Below)

Clean your nails and apply a top coat - Then sit back and admire =D

 I hope you enjoyed this tutorial =D



P.s I will also make another using Sandwich bags asap
