Nail stamping has taken the nail art industry by storm. From DIYers to professional nail technicians, every nail art addict has been on the hunt for countless plates and polishes to add to their kits. However, there are at least five specific tools that every professional nail art kit should have and that every stamper should be familiar with. To make sure your kit is up to par, we’ve gone ahead and broken down the five must-have tools for you.
1. A Wide Assortment of Stamping Plates
These must-have tools are absolutely mandatory for creating stunning nail art, and having a large arsenal in your kit is key. Clients will come to you during every season and holiday looking for nail art that compliments the festivities, like Christmas, summer, or spring nail designs. To make sure you can offer up unique designs that will keep your clients loyal, stock up on lots of plates to make sure your professional nail art kit is always on point.
2. Top-of-the-Line Nail Stamping Polish
Clients can be pretty picky about polish colours, so having a good variety in your kit is a good idea. It’s also important to make sure the polish is good quality and can stand up to a little bit of wear and tear. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the popular nail colour trends too. A lot of times, clients will bring in pictures of some of the more trendy styles for you to imitate. So go ahead and grab a whole pile of polish. You’ll be so thankful you stocked up your professional nail art kit well before that choosy client walks through your door.
3. A Boss Stamper
If you use your stamper many times throughout the day, it’s a good idea to make sure your kit not only has a reliable stamper, but at least one or two back up stamper heads as well. Stampers have a delicate surface, so it’s important to take care of your stamper as you work. However, the more use your stamper sees, the more frequently it will need to be replaced. By keeping a spare (or two!) in your kit, you’ll be able to swap it out if needed without skipping a beat.
4. A Great Scraper
Although a credit card will work in a pinch, it’s a good idea to have a couple of scrapers on hand. Think of these as pens – they’re totally necessary, but can get lost easily in the shuffle. Keep a few on hand, one in your pocket, and a couple more tucked away in your professional nail kit. Stock up now and save those poor credit cards from nail polish build-up.
5. A Bunch of Brushes
Having a couple of go-to nail art brushes in your kit is a very good thing. Brushes can be used to clean up nail polish oopsies or paint a stunning French mani with ease. Some brushes even come with diamonds in the handle to help bling out your kit. Besides being stylish, these brushes will make your art stand out against the rest.
