Advanced stamping techniques: Masking your images

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


So, I recently got UberChic Beauty's new cuticle barrier, and the small brush inside inspired me to try out a new stamping masking technique with it...




First, here's the video I did showing the technique, if you're a visual learner:



For this mani, I started with a base of Zoya Lacey, and then stamped my first image (from UberChic Beauty 26-02) with Hit The Bottle Shadows of Darkness (in the US and Canada, you can also find Hit The Bottle at Lantern & Wren). Then I painted around the circle portion of the image with my Edge Perfection, and waited for it to dry (in the video, I put topcoat over the stamping first, but I've since found out you don't need to do that):




Once it was dry, I stamped my second image on top, with Hit The Bottle Polish It Mossed Be Love:




Then I removed the masking from the nail:




Here's how the final mani turned out:

And here it is matted:

The possibilities are endless with this technique--you can see two other tutorials I did with it here and here.  Enjoy!


Big hugs,
