Nail stamping is a simple way to get gorgeous and complex looking nail art designs. A nail stamping kit usually includes etched metal plates, a scraper, and a soft rubber stamp. Nail polish is brushed onto the etched plates and excess polish is scraped off. Nail polish fills the grooves in the etched plates, and when the stamp is pressed onto the plate, the polish transfers to the stamp. The stamp can then be pressed onto the nail to transfer the design.
There are hundreds or even thousands of nail stamping designs to choose from. Each plate usually has a theme, such as animal print or holiday designs. Many of the designs are simply beautiful and stamping nails yields much more detailed and cleaner results than attempting nail art designs by hand. Extra nail stamping plates can be purchased from beauty supply stores and online retailer and used with almost any nail stamping kit.
