KK CENTER HK Soft Stampers : Nail Art Looks and Review

Good morning, my darlings! Bright and early this morning, I am very excited to show you a few products from KK Center HK that I've spent quite a few weeks testing--soft stampers! Now, in all these months of swatching and reviewing and progressing to attempts at nail art, I've never gotten the hang of stamping...NEVER. This technique that comes so easily and beautifully in the hands of some bloggers and nail artists has eluded me completely--it's just never worked for me! So, when Maggie showed me these products, I was over the moon! Easy stamping without the need for separate stamper, scraper and plates?! YES PLEASE! The tops of these handy little things show you the design of the image, as shown above, while the indented image itself is on the back, as shown below!

For my first post on these stampers, I chose to do a skittles mani using at least one design from each plate as well as a few of my favorite holographic polishes on Salon Perfect Sugar Cube, a great basic white polish. Shown below are Bear Pawlish Maleficent and Apple Grass; Colors by Llarowe Addicts Attack and Smitten Polish Radiant Orchid.

USE : The premise behind these stampers is very simple. Here's a step-by-step guide :

1. Paint a solid base color.
    --I used 2 coats of Salon Perfect Sugar Cube as mine

2. Paint 2 thin coats of your chosen polish
    --I used Bear Pawlish's Maelficent and Apple Grass to cover halves of a fishtail/mermaid design.  

3. Remove excess polish around the image design by stamping or pressing firmly but quickly on a piece of paper.

5. Press the design image firmly on your nail and roll your nail quickly from one side to the other to ensure proper transfer of the image.

6. Seal in your stamped design with 1 coat of topcoat
    --I used 1 thin coat of G&G's HK Girl

Take a look at my results!

IMPRESSIONS : Is this a perfect method for stamping? By no means. Do I still love it? HECK YES! With these, I actually managed to stamp at all! When you press on paper to clean up the excess, that step is the troublesome one--not all the polish on the edges of the design comes off and you're left with smudges as seen above. But I think more practice and maybe a quick clean up with a brush and acetone around the edges of the designs might serve me well in the future. I'm also going to try experimenting with thicker polishes that don't dry as quickly--maybe that will help with not only edge cleanup but also with better transfer. All in all, I still love the idea and ease of use of these products and full intend to keep practicing until I perfect this technique. But....YAY! I semi-successfully stamped! =)

So there you have it, my darlings! My very first, somewhat successful stamping post!

  2. I have the same stampers ... I watch a lot a videos before I even try it ... its easy-to-use but. 1- wait until the nail polish is complete dry after you remove the excces ...if the design is not perfect inthe edges. .. I used a toothpick to clean up !!! Check this video http://m.youtube.com/select_site
