Let's get stamping

Hey all,

Today I have some stamping to show you all! Yep, I am finally branching into the world of stamping at long last.  I received this nail art stamping kit from the Born Pretty store on Friday so I thought I might as well give it a go straight away.


The Butterfly floral nail art kit comes with three little stamping polishes, a metal scrapper, a stamper and 2 stamping plates. m42 is the plate on the left and m68 is on the right. The plates are chosen at random.

I started off with a base of Nails Inc Old Park lane. A gorgeous metallic rose gold polish. It's almost a one coater and perfect for stamping but I think it looks just as good as a base. Then using the born pretty kit I stamped on Catrice Sold out forever (new version) onto each nail from the m68 plate.


I really like this stamp in particular. It very easy to work with and it stamps perfectly. I managed to smudge my middle and pinky nail with the topcoat which was a bit annoying but overall I love the design.  I have used all of the stamps and they all seem to be etched quite well. The nail polish included with the kit has quite a chemically smell to it so I didn't use them indoors. You need a well ventilated room!


The Born pretty store  is a perfect starter kit for stamping. It has pretty much everything you could need to start stamping and the plates have some really pretty designs.

I have a coupon code for 10% off if any of you would like to get a nice little discount off if your Born Pretty Store nail art goodies here:


Let me know what you think! More stamping or should I stick to freehand nail art? :P

  1. This looks so good! I love your free-hand nail art, but this is really nice for an understated look (or for those of us with less co-ordination haha) I think I might pick a set up!

    1. haha thank you :P Ah stamping is fierce handy once you get the hang of it. Plus it means you can really dress your nail up for any occasion without paying people to do it

  3. You are very good at freehand, so you should definitely not stop doing that. But stamping is also fun, so now you can do that too if you feel like it, or combine stamping and freehand art.

    1. Good idea, I think combining the two would be the best of both worlds.
      Thank you Lani! You're so nice x

  6. Moar!! :D (though as much as I love your freehand art (very talented!), I do like seeing konad manis)
    I really like the design chosen for this post, I love these floral prints as nail art! *sigh* but I'm just too lazy to do it more often myself.
