Half stamped

Hi everyone! As you know, I almost always stamp with full nail images. But most plates have smaller images on them as well, and plate sets come with plenty of smaller images. So I have quite a few plates that I rarely ever use, with a lot of nice images! Now I plan on using smaller images a bit more often, and hopefully it'll become easier to stamp those little ones straight as well. The image that I picked today is like a half full nail image and that's how I stamped it as well. What do you think of it?


China Glaze Sweet Hook with Color Club Wild At Heart and Konad plate m51.


Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. I always have that problem too! The old BM plates have really small whole nail images so this is a rally good idea to stamp just hald the nail :)

  10. So pretty! I never would have thought to turn the design that way. I usually stamp them horizontal like a band. I'll have to try it this way.

  34. Aww, thanks Marina! :) Some brands have starter kits, with a plate, stamp and scraper, maybe that could be nice for you?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank you, that's nice to hear! :) I have my stamping polishes on seperate nail wheels, so I can easy hold them next to my normal wheels and pick a combo, makes it a lot easier!

    ReplyDelete

  37. Thanks Brittney :) And I will!

  38. I'm sure you'll find an image that works for it, but if your images are too small, you could perhaps stamp it several times on 1 side of your nails :)

  39. Thanks GosiaB, I'm glad to hear you like it!

  40. Thank you, MissDoll! I actually find full nail images easier to stamp, for me those little ones are harder to get straight on each nail :) And I think you should! Once you get the hang of it, it's surprisingly easy and fun!
