I want to share an advanced stamping technique called reverse stamping. It's an easy way to create stunning colourful designs. It looks way more complicated than it is. Find out how I created these beauties!

If you're new to stamping you should start with my stamping tutorial here. If you're a stamping pro, try this more advanced stamping nail art technique.
I only use Born Pretty products for all my stamping. You can use any stamping plate you want but you should use high quality stamping polishes for the best results.

Now, using a small dotting tool dipped in your choice of polish, colour in the blank space on the design. As you can tell by the picture, it doesn't have to be perfect. Unlike regular stamping, it's okay if the polish dries so take your time and add as many colours as you like. You can also use regular polish to colour your stamp in as well.
I could have painted the leaves too but I needed a base colour so I painted the nail green instead.
Clear jelly stampers work the best with reverse stamping because you can flip it over to see if you've missed any spots.
I have tried several different methods on how to transfer the stamped image onto the nail. First, I tried using clear polish painted on the nail until it was almost dry (still a little sticky) but not all of the image transferred onto the nail. I also tried to paint the clear polish onto the stamped image and stamp it onto the nail but that didn't work well either. Then I came across a You Tube video where someone used foil glue, so I tried it and it worked perfectly. What a genius idea! I wish I had thought of that.
If you've never used foil glue, it's a paint on glue that goes on white (or blue with some brands) and dries clear. It's used to adhere nail foils. I will be doing a tutorial for foils soon so subscribe now so you don't miss it!
Once the glue is dried, stamp the image onto the nail. Add a top coat and it's done. Amazing designs you won't see anywhere else, and you can do it yourself!
