I wanted one of these stampers from the moment I found out they existed. If you’ve ever needed to place your stamping perfectly on a part of your nail, you can understand the struggle of not being able to see how to line up the design. This crystal clear stamper solves that issue and really is a pleasure to work with.
This stamper and scraper set is from Born Pretty Store, where the merchandise is cheap and the shipping is free. It did take over a month to arrive from Singapore, but the wait was worth it!
I love that the handle and the scraper are translucent plastic to match the clear stamper.
The handle has several grooved indentations running along the length of it to provide some grip, and the stamper head is removable. I’m hoping that extra clear heads will be available for purchase someday so that making decals is super easy. In any case, the head is held into the base securely and will not fall out on its own.
The head itself is squishy yet firm. It is not as soft as a marshmallow stamper, but it is not so firm that it is not flexible. It definitely has enough give where you can simply push the stamper straight down onto your nail bed to transfer the design.
Better than anything is how this stamper does not need any priming!
The scraper is hard plastic and does what it’s supposed to do.
Of course, thanks to the hollow handle and the clear stamp head, you can see perfectly through the tube to the surface you will be stamping. This also means that any color of nail polish that you use will be fully visible. If you’ve ever tried to use white polish on a white stamper head, you will know how important this is.
It makes applying a specific part of a design very easy.
Double stamping is also a breeze if you want to add a second color on top of an image, like I did in my Easter lily manicure.
You can also make nail decals directly on the stamper head using reverse stamping techniques.
Then you can go back and add even more color to your stamping like I did for my springtime floral mani.
I can’t stress how in love I am with this stamper and scraper set. I’ve never had such a pleasurable experience with a stamper before. The fact that it doesn’t need priming instantly makes it deserve a top rating in my book, but the ease with which you can place your designs accurately on your nails really takes the cake. Anyone who enjoys stamping should own one of these!
