fall trends 12 Nail Art Stamping 3 Stamped on my Heart: Nail ArtFor some strange reason, I was born with hands incapable of drawing cute pictures on my nails. It is really frustrating seeing all the nail art pictures, especially now since I am seeing a lot of Halloween themed nail art. I found an easy solution that I want to share with you all!

First you need to apply a basecoat like the start of any other manicure.

Next, you need to apply one to two coats of the polish you want in the background of your design. It is very important to let this coat dry completely before moving to the next step.

You then need to paint the design with your second polish.

Next, use the scraper from you nail stamping kit and scrape the excess polish. You must use the scraper at a 90 degree angle and not slanted so you only get the excess polish.
