  1. Ok she said the common mistakes to be honest it looks perfectly fine to me

  2. Is there a good cruelty-free top coat that works as well as the Essie? Maybe Pacifica or Zoya?

  3. My top 5 are:
    1. SMEAR!?
    5.SMEAR. I QUIT! ✌?

  4. What is the best top coat to use so it won't smear?

  5. its nice and very helpful thank you cutepolish…??

  6. who watches her vids but never does them βœ‹


  8. What about prepping the stamper? I swear mine just won't prep!

  9. I see everybody using the rectangle stamping pads. I have the circle ones and have kind of trouble with them. what is the difference I don't understand.

  10. Which song is the background music?

  11. Any tips to get the clear stamper to work? Mine isn't picking up like it should. I prepped it like but it's still not working so I still use my non clear stamped which picks up the image perfectly but I can't place it on my nails perfectly since I can't see it ?

  12. your nail are gorgeous I wish that your nails will be mine I love them and your nail designs are superb …….:)

  13. Love cutepolish!!❀️

  14. The last one is horrifying. T-T

  15. This has helped me a lot! I always mess it up when it comes to stamping… I'm sure now I'll do it a lot better!

    PS: My most common mistake is using a polish that it's not really pigmented… oops…

  16. Plz can u do a diy stamping polish!!!! That will be soooooo useful!

  17. So what happens when all this is done but the stamper won't pick it up at all?

  18. I just ordered a stamper and stamping plate on Amazon and I also ordered the top coat that was in the description. I am so excited for it to come.

  19. how do you clean a clear stamper? mine got un-seethrough the first time when I cleaned it with nail polish remover πŸ™

  20. I didn't know about the blue film. So I tried and failed at stamping for 3yrs before I learned lmao

  21. Another important step is priming your stampers. For the rubberized ones, a magic eraser sponge works well. Clear stampers only need a hand wash with dish soap. They pick up much better after that. The best advice I got when learning to stamp is to stamp over a quick dry top coat. That way you can quickly erase any mistakes with scotch tape. ??

  22. the first one happened to me ???

  23. My clear stamper won't pick up the pattern, no matter what I do! I've taken off the protective sheet, I even PRIMED everything…still no luck! Is my stamper just defective?? :'(

  24. Congrats on 3 million guys!!!

  25. Sandi I downloaded ur game it awesome I love it

  26. wow!! that was an amazing video… I do nail art myself abd you are a great inspiration….

  27. Ive noticed that some topcoats change over time, like one that will smear a mani when the bottle is brand new won't smear the mani after being used for a bit and getting thicker.

  28. which top coats do you usually use for stamping? i haven't had a good one yet, so I'm going to buy it anyway. Could you please give me some ideas? πŸ™‚

  29. Hi, Just wanted to say that some companies put clear film over their plates instead of blue- which can be confusing! πŸ™‚

    Also I've noticed in my nail art group sometimes the clear stampers can be very hard to work with, even from reputable companies- they often need messing with to get them to work! Cleaning with dish soap and air drying can help, cleaning with a lint roller, and if all else fails I actually buffed two of mine because a slightly cloudy stamper was better than not being able to stamp at all!

    Oh, and while some topcoats will smear no matter what you do, most topcoats work ok if you carefully float the polish (brush lightly so the brush never makes contact with your nails, using the brush to spread the polish from the surface without dragging it through) and if you're brushing too hard or going over the same spot over again you will smudge no matter what you use- if you miss a tiny spot or it's not quite even, don't go over and over it again- let it dry and then take a little more time with a second top coat to even it all out <3

  30. Super helpful! I got a bunch of nail srampers and templates for Christmas a couple years ago and can never get them to work, so they're just sitting in the back of my nail drawer. Now I'm gonna go dig them out!

  31. Hey…its really helpful and more than that your voice is amazing

  32. I soooooooo needed this video.

  33. If you are reading this have a good day!

  34. This is the most helpful video for me. I haven't dived into nail stamping yet, I'm working up my courage. This video helped. Thanks. πŸ˜‰

  35. I need that cute polish stamp plate!!

  36. My first time experience was fun n horrible on d same tym

  37. Who else thinks that this video was so satisfying?

  38. I brought a bunch of stampers (clear ones, opaque ones, round, square) and none of them seem to pick up the stamping polish from the plate. I work quick and use enough polish and stamp in a rolling pattern but nothing. Any tips on how to fix it?

  39. I have trouble with getting the colour on my stamp. When I use a regulary Stamp, it works, but when I use the same as you do in your Video, it didn't work.

    sorry for bad english ?

  40. the #1? really? how can you forget?!
