Advanced Stamping ~ Tulip May Flowers (HPB Link up)

Good afternoon everyone! If you are a regular reader, thanks and love ya as always. If you stopped by through the Hobby Polish Bloggers May Flowers Blog Link Up, thanks for stopping by and I hope you like this post! Be sure to check the end of this post for other May Flower posts by some of the other awesome ladies of Hobby Polish Bloggers.

Today I have some advanced stamping to show you, with picture tutorials. I have done a number of advanced stamping posts recently; as this was one of those techniques I was hesitant to try, but oh how I love it now!! So I want to share the love and hopefully encourage some others to give it a try. 

What I used in this mani:
Zoya Genesis (Paradise Sun collection)
Konad Green Stamping Polish
MoYou London Pro Plate #8
Fab Ur Nails Stamper
Zoya Frida
Zoya Coraline
Zoya Paloma
Zoya Kate
Zoya Katherine
Loreal Jolly Lolly
Loreal Bananarama
Loreal Berry Nice
Small nail art brush
Small dotting tool

For this mani I used the tulip image from MoYou plate #8. After my base of Zoya Genesis was completely dry, I stamped the tulip image on each nail using Konad Green and my Fab Ur Nails (FUN) stamper. 

I then started filling in the tulips with my various colors I chose. Everything I chose is a jelly or crelly polish, I find those easier to work with in lead-lighting. I used my fine nail art brush for filling in the tulips, and using the small dotting tool for touch ups and precise areas. 

After I was pleased with the tulip colors I filled in the grassy area using my fine nail art brush and Konad green. After everything was dry I topped it off with a nice thick layer of HK Girl Glisten and Glow. 

So what do you think of the finished mani? While this is called ‘Advanced Stamping’ I personally find this technique relative easy, fun, and very flexible! If you haven’t tried this yet, I recommend trying it. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Any questions about this mani? Leave me a comment below ~ always love to hear from you! 

Until next time, Stay Polished!
