Technique: Reverse Stamping

Just learned about a technique called reverse stamping, where you combine the techniques of DIY decals (which I’ve mentioned before) and stamping plates to come up with almost a stained glass effect. Yes, I’m a little behind, it’s been out in nail blogs for about a year and a half, but it’s never too late to learn something new.

When I followed all the links back to what seems to be the original design, I found 3 new blogs to follow and great examples of this technique. Follow me through the rabbit hole…

1) Start with Sarah at Chalkboard Nails, who just posted this example of the technique.

2) The tutorial she used was from Drama Queen Nails, who posted this mini-tutorial on Instagram (full version on her blog).

3) She learned the technique from the tutorial by Shatter Me Claire

4) …who modified the technique (to make it easier) from what seems to be the original: this Nailz Craze tutorial (mini-tutorial below, full version on the blog).

Have you tried this technique? How did it turn out?
