The holidays are right around the corner so I figured what better time to try out the nail stamping trend! It’s quick, easy and leaves you with flawless nail art.
One of the best parts of nail stamping is that you don’t have to be good at nail art or have a steady hand! You can mix and match any shade that you like, add glitter, an accent nail, you name it – it’s all about letting your creative side show…
Keep in mind that I usually free hand my nail art so this is new for me, but I’ve become curious seeing the increasing amount of nail stamping that has taken over social media as of late.
Honestly, nail stamping kits are extremely hard to find in store, and usually when you order online you end up paying three times the amount in shipping and handling as they usually come from other countries (and take forever to arrive). Needless to say, I was super happy when I found out that Trade Secrets started carrying MoYou London! The MoYou London kits are priced at CAD $29.95 (they include a plate, polish and a separate bag with a squishy stamp and scraper) while single plates are priced at CAD $13.95. The stamp and scraper alone cost about CAD $16.95, while polishes vary from CAD $9.95 to CAD $19.95. MoYou London is currently sold exclusively at Trade Secrets in Canada. I was lucky enough to receive the Holy Shapes starter kit, and The Pro stencil to get me started, but I also picked up the Festive stencil and starter kit because, well, it’s that time of the year and I couldn’t resist!
I’ll get right into my easy 5-steps to achieving flawless nail art using one of the designs in the Festive starter kit:
- Start with a base colour of your choice, I used OPI Love Is In The Cards as mine
- Fill in the section/design that you’d like to use in the stamping plate with your second shade, I used MoYou White Knight as mine
- Take your stamper and quickly roll it over the wet polish on the plate
- Transfer and roll onto your nail, again in a quick manner
- Clean up excess polish and seal in with a top coat
If you’re into nail stamping or simply curious be sure to check out Trade Secrets (@tradesecretsca) for more information, as I mentioned before they are the only retailer in Canada that carries MoYou London. Fun fact: Trade Secrets is where I buy all of my nail polish, they always have really great deals and are usually the first to carry new collections! They will also be coming out with 6-9 new kits in the new year.
I am also doing a giveaway until December 16, 2015, see my Instagram for a chance to win your very own MoYou London ‘Festive’ Starter Kit! It’s perfect for the holidays- I can’t wait to see all of your designs! * GIVEAWAY CLOSED *
Happy Stamping! 🙂
