Today I'll be showing you the clear stamper that was sent from Born Pretty Store for my review.
Since the day I've started stamping, I've been using various stampers. Colored, white, squishy, large, rectangle, firm, you name it, I've tried it. But my first choice has always been my old Konad stamper. I'm aware that sometimes you need the squishy stamper if an image won't fit your huge thumb, but sometimes, some stampers won't work with some plates so I always go back to my beloved Konad stamper.
Anyway, I've been following the fuss about clear stampers for a while and I have thought "well, that's just another stamper". But boy, I was wrong. Really wrong! Honestly, I don't know how I've ever managed to survive without a clear stamper before!!!!
Ok, first the artistic photos!
The stamper comes with a plastic scraper which honestly, I never use. The old credit card works like a charm for me.
The clear stamper head is soft and squishy. And clear, obviously... :) The logo on the stamper is just a sticker which is likely to remove after a few uses. I wish it was a permenant one.
I picked the pink body. You may choose purple or clear bodies as well.
Ok, moving on to more important stuff.
Remember how we used to prime our stampers with buffers and acetone? Well, this is one thing you SHOULDN'T be doing to this stamper. Because using acetone, harsh removers or buffers will cloud the clear vision.
The only way to clean this stamper is a lint remover, which is my number one method for all my stampers.
Ok, for my nails, I used 2 coats of Essie Coctails and Coconuts over my regular base coat. I prepped the skin around my nails with a local brand of liquid palisade for easy cleanup. I used Wet & Wild Black creme for stamping.
Look how nicely the stamper picked up the image... No missing parts or whatsoever.
And here is the fun part. The below picture shows the image as you should be putting on your nails.
See what I mean? You get to see where you stamp! Isn't that genius????
This is vital for double stamping and for specific placement of some small images. Think about the possibilities!!!! I think I'm going to order some spare stamper heads for this one!!!
And here's the finished manicure. Only the middle finger missed a spot, but that's mainly because I was shooting a video ath the same time, so I was a little late picking up the polish.
And if you want to see the stamper in action, you may watch the video.
This is my first video ever! My voice and accent sounds soooo funny. And editing takes like forever but I like it so much and I think I'll keep them coming. What do you think?
Anyway, if you want to own the miracle clear stamper for such a little price, visit Born Pretty Store and be sure to use my 10% off coupon code for a lovely discount. The code is HLL91 by the way.
