Retro Comic Book Nail Art

One of my goals for the new year was to improve my nail stamping skills. I decided to jump right in and do my first full nail stamping decal for The Nail Art Guild's Retro challenge on Instagram.


Tools used: 

MoYou London Pro Plate 15

Bundle Monster Plate 602

Born Pretty Store Gold Round Studs

Polish used: 

Pueen White in White

Pueen Black in Black

Zoya Willa

Zoya Chyna

Zoya Farah

Dance Legend 409

China Glaze Adventure Red-y


I used steps similar to these to create my nail decal for my middle finger. I have tried the other method of creating decals but this one is easier when you are only doing one or two nails. For the other nails I did the basic stamping technique and for my ring finger I applied a black french tip. I applied my gold studs with tweezers and a bit of top coat.

My decal didn't turn out perfectly but considering this was my first time doing one I was really happy with the end result. I can't wait to try the technique again with other images.
