paintitbright said: Hey there! As you do quite a lot of stamping I thought you might help me. When I stamp a lot (each nail) I sometimes have the following problem: the polish doesnt transfer from the plate to the stamp - either partly or almost as a whole :( It mostly happens when I use small/fine motives. Do you have an idea what the reason may be?

It could be a few different things…when it happens to me I try the following:

  • Clean my stamper, scraper and plate really well with 100% acetone.
  • Hold the scraper at a 45 degree angle when scraping the polish off the plate.
  • Make sure the stamping polish isn’t too thick/drying too fast.

This happened to me recently and it turned out that my stamping polish had gotten too thick. It wasn’t able to get into all the fine details of the plate and was drying too quickly. A few drops of polish thinner cleared the issue right up! HTH!
