Stamping out the stamping bugs

Thursday, April 23, 2015

I convinced myself that I had to try stamping to create nail art again. I have never had much luck with stamping and couldn't seem to transfer a clean image to my nails. Well, I am glad I tried again. Laurie from Dressed Up Digits gave me the courage to try again.

A little while back, I purchased some Mundo de Unas stamping polish. Well, it sat on my desk for weeks before I gathered the courage to attempt nail art with stamping. Let me tell you... it made all the difference in the world. I am extremely excited as this opens a whole new nail art door for me!

I started off with a base coat of OPI Alpine Snow and added an alcohol ink marble to it. I used Mermaid and Poppyfield inks. I love alcohol inks for a quick marbled look. Then I stamped with Mundo de Unas Blue Navy and an image from the XL 18 plate from BundleMonster. The Blue Navy polish transferred flawlessly to my nails. There was no lifting of the polish or bald spots left behind.   I still need to work on my placement though. The image plate was also easy to work with.

Stamped nail art using Mundo de Unas polishes and BundleMonster image plates.

I will definitely be increasing my stash of image plates and stamping polishes. I know that a lot of people have great luck using normal polishes to stamp with - and I will eventually try those again - after I build my confidence and skills.

Have you tried Mundo de Unas? What do you stamp with for a clean image?

I purchased this Mundo polish (and quite a few others) from llarowe.


  1. I haven't tried Mundo de Unas yet, but once my Konad polish runs out, I'm trying it. My biggest success in stamping came when I got a squishy marshmallowy white stamper. It's so much softer than the harder Konad one I was using and you don't have to roll the design on and since using it, all my stamping comes out almost perfect. I still have placement issues though.

    1. Yes, I agree! With everything you said. I also have a squishy marshmallowy white stamper now too. The Konad just didn't seem to work well on me since my nails are so rounded. Now, placement is my biggest challenge.

  2. Thanks for sharing.I found a lot of interesting information here. A really good post, very thankful and hopeful that you will write many more posts like this one.
