Purple Gradient Tribal Print Stamping

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

One of the nail art techniques that I haven't done in a while is stamping so I decided to get back into it. I got some plates from Born Pretty Store to try out so I went ahead and did a manicure. This was kind of a spontaneous design so its not perfect but let's see how it looks.

Sally Hansen, Essie, American Apparel, Seche Vite

I started with Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud on my nails. Then I did a gradient by sponging on Essie Splash of Grenadine on the tips of my nails. I stamped using American Apparel Hassid with the Born Pretty Store stamper and scraper set with an image from the Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA66. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off. Finished with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Here is how the stamping plate looks when I first received it. It came with a blue protective film on both the front and back to prevent any scratches prior to peeling the film off. The only complaint I have about this plate is that the back does not have a protective paper backing other image plates have. So you have to be careful not to cut yourself with it.

Here's a closer look at the stamping plate and the designs on it. I like that it has some full size images as well as small images on it. What drew me in to this plate was this tribal image and the geometric one. Surprisingly, I also really like the butterfly image too. This cost $2.99 but you can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order.

My stamping skills aren't the best since its been a while since I've done it but I like how this looks regardless. It almost looks ancient to me because the print looks broken and faded here. What do you think of this tribal print stamping manicure?

  3. I love tribal print over gradients! I definitely need this plate I've wanted to do tribal nails for a while now but I don't think I have the skills or the patience for freehand haha

    1. Thanks! You should get this plate then. I've always wanted to do a free handed tribal print but I don't think it would turn out too good. So this plate is a great alternative :)

    1. Thanks! You can stamp with a lot of colors, they just have to be opaque enough :)
