Applying gold nail polish to nails

1. Apply nail polish

Start by applying your nail polish. You can apply a few coats of it until you get your desired saturation. I’ve gone for a rich gold color as I think it feels very Christmassy and I also love going for warm tones in cold winter months.

If you don’t want to go for gold, the stamping will be in white, so make sure that you choose a dark color so that there will be a nice clear contrast.

2. Apply the stamps

To apply the stamps to your nails, start by choosing a design and painting your stamping polish over it. Here, I’ve gone for a Christmas bell.

You can buy nail stamping kits or stamp plates online via Amazon or similar online stores.

Using Christmas nail stamping plates

Then, use your scraping tool to spread the polish over the design and scrape off any excess.

Next, press your stamp onto the design and transfer it onto your nail, pressing it on very gently and in a rolling motion to ensure that all of the polish transfers.

Repeat these stages for all of the rest of your nails. Have fun choosing a different design for each nail. Remember that you don’t want to rush, but you also don’t want to work too slowly, or else the stamping polish may start to dry.
