What is Nail Art Stamping?

Now, any tech can instantly achieve impressive nail art with stamping, a technique where nail polish is embedded in the grooves of an engraved design and then transferred onto the surface of the nail using a stamper.


Regular polishes are much more watery and thin in comparison to stamping polish. So this means that the polish won’t cling to the ridges and grooves of the stamping plates instead it would just run off making it harder for the nail stamp to pick it up and get a clear imprint.
