Nail That Technique Challenge - Week 4: "Reverse Stamping"


I am little late in posting week four challenge manicure for Nail That Technique. The theme for last week was reverse stamping.  

Reverse stamping is also known as stamping decals. When this concept first came out there was two ways of doing it. first method is to stamp on a plastic bag and fill the image, apply top coat and when dries peel it like a decal. Second way is to stamp on stamper head itself and do the rest thing same as first method. Now there is one new way of doing it where you fill the image on stamper itself using nail polishes, when it get dries then you directly stamp it on the nail without applying any top coat on the filled image(unlike previous reverse stamping techniques). 

 For this manicure I used second and third method to see what is more convenient.  I chose tribal design to do reverse stamping and here is my manicure:
