I reached 800 followers so its time for a giveaway! I will be giving away 1 Holo nail polish set, 2 China Glaze nail polishes, 1 Seche Vite top coat, 1 180/180 grit nail file, 1 pedicure slipper, 2 toe seperators, and 1 set of hand painted nails you can apply at home of your choice, from my…
Hi! I recently started following your blog, and I was wondering if you could tell me what stamps you use on your nails, and how to use them a little bit? I'm looking into buying stamps, lol. Thanks for your time. :)
Oh my, this is a lot of info and I don’t want to overload you! Thanks for following and the inquiry. I recommend starting out with either one of the BundleMonster sets available on Amazon (the most recent collection if you have to choose just one). Or on ebay, there are fauxnad plates sold in sets of 12pc to 50pc & ranging in price from 9.99USD to 45USD+. These are duplicates of the pricey Konad brand plates (avg 7.50USD per small plate) and I think you can purchase konad dupes individually on the born pretty site but I’m not sure. I kinda like the plates being a surprise when I open them though and it’s just so cheap to buy them in lots.
You will also have to get Stamper/Scraper. I recommend the 2-sided konad set ($3USD on Amazon).
The rest of my answer can be found at my new blog (some of my posts are too big/long/pic heavy for tumblr, I think): tinycanvases.blogspot.com. Be advised it is still under construction! I have lots of info, links to tutorials, personal experience tips & tricks, and stamping secrets for you after the jump. Thanks again for following me!!
Since I have attracted 55 followers in one month, I figure 100 followers can’t be too far off, right? On that day, I will give away a bundle of nail art loot to one random follower. I haven’t put the prize together yet but I wanted to give my followers a heads up. The loot will include at least 5-6 nail stamping image plates (dupes from a set I got recently from which I had already ordered some of the plates individually) & a stamper/scraper set, 2-3 of my personal favorite “regular” nail polishes that are great for stamping, and my favorite nail art accessory - Onyx Pro acetone corrector pen (the walmart near my house used to keep 2 in stock, now they keep 7-8 on the shelf…all my fault). I’ll probably come up with some more stuff to toss in there by next week.
And whoever the lucky 100th follower may be will get a custom manicure painted by me to celebrate the (soon-to-be) grand opening of my hand-made manicure store on Etsy.
Rules to come with specifics on the loot next week. Have a safe and peaceful holiday!
