Hey everyone, today I am sharing an easy tutorial to create colorful stencil for nails. A lot of looks can be created using different stencils.
For this manicure, I used Milani White on the spot as a base. The pink is Maybelline Color Show Fiesty Fuchsia and the yellow is Maybelline Sweet Sunshine.
Now on to the tutorial…
Things you will need:
Four nail paint shades: white, pink, yellow and black (You can use any shades depending on the image).
Quick dry top coat.
Image plate (I have used Bundle Monster image plate BM02)
Stamper and Scrapper
Orange stick (you can also use a toothpick or small dotting tool)
1.Select an image plate and a particular image from which you want to create the stencil.
2.Apply black nail paint on the image plate.
3.Scrap the nail paint using a scrapper.
4.Press the stamper on the nail plate and pick a clear image. Let the image dry for 2 minutes.
5.Fill the pink and yellow shades between the boundaries of the image using an orange tool.
6.Let it dry for 5 minutes. (This step is most important. The polish should be completely dry before proceeding further. If the image is not dry, it will smudge and ruin the stencil.)
7.While the image is drying paint your nails with the base shade and let it dry.
8.After the image dries completely on the stamper, apply a fast drying top coat on it. Let it dry for 2-3 minutes. Do this step carefully and try not to smudge the polish outside the image boundaries.
9.Press the tweezer along the boundaries of image carefully. The image will lift easily from the stamper.
and 10. Carefully pick the image using the tweezer.
11.Place the stencil on your nail and lightly press it using your finger.
12.Top coat your nail.
And you have colorful design on your nails.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay beautiful….
