5 Piece Squishy Stamper

Born Pretty Store 


Hey all, I wasn't really planning on doing this blog post, but as I'd only quickly reviewed the 5 piece squishy stamper set that I bought myself from the Born Pretty Store, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you all how good this set is. I was doing my next manicure for @clairestelle8 August IG challenge and using these stampers worked great. The next challenge is Triangles, and I had the perfect image on a new plate I also bought.


Using my go to black stamping polish from Pretty and stamped the mixed triangle image. You can see how well each of the stamper heads picked the design up. When I first tried them, some worked better than others, and those that didn't work I just lightly buffed with a Magic Eraser.


After painting my nails white, I coloured the Triangles using acrylic paint.


Once dry I top coated.


Then painted foil glue on my nails, as I find this the easiest way to apply decals. And instead of peeling the decals off, I stamped them directly on my nails. Cleaned up and voilà..


I love these, not the biggest of stampers, but super squishy and great for stamping my curved nails or making decals.
I'm also super happy with how this mani turned out for this challenge. Beauty UK Super Shiny Topcoat us amazingly glossy. Hope you like it too.
Stay safe and much love....

    1. It's so much easier, no sliding around, or dissolving of the decal, and a smoother finish x
