Who remembers these??

Again with the “old me” here!

Have you heard of “Advanced Stamping” or “Reverse stamping”?

It’s a very cool technique that can also add some pizzazz to your stamps. You can do this directly onto the stamper, a plastic Ziplock baggie or actually do it on a silicone mat (like I did).

If you’re going to use the silicone mat for this, add a top coat to your mat so you can stamp over it (trust me, it makes it easier to pick up after.)

Stamp your design over them, and color your design to your taste. Remember to work in layers, and the first color you start coloring first will be the one that is the top layer when you pick them up and apply them to your nails.

Once you’re satisfied with the design, you can add another layer of top coat to your decals and then wait 20 ish minutes for them to dry completely before peeling them off.

Make your nails sticky by adding a thin layer of colored or transparent polish to your nails and position the decal over the nail where you desire. Then, smooth out with a cleaning brush and a bit of acetone, and finally add a glossy top coat to blend in everything and you’ve got some nice intricate decals on your nails!
