QUESTION: Why am I having voids in my bigger images and why do I sometimes have tiny, bubble-like voids in some of my smaller images?
If you are using a large stamping plate
and, when you scrape the stamping polish off, the middle of the image is missing polish, all you need to remember is to push down the plate before scraping. The stamping plates have a slight bow to them so you need to push it flat to the table and then scrape.
Work on a hard, flat surface so that you can push the stamping plate
flat. If you work on a towel, manicure pad or anything soft, you can't push it flat.
☑️Make sure your scraper is completely clean and free of dried stamping polish. If there is even a tiny bit of dried polish on the end, it will scratch out part of the design.
☑️When scraping the stamping polish off, hold the scraper the long way and use the belly of the scraper rather than standing it straight up especially for large backgrounds.
If you are seeing tiny, bubble-like voids, try applying your nail stamping polish
in one direction and scraping in the opposite direction.
Make sure your stamping plate is squeaky clean
.QUESTION: Why does my stamping polish seem watery when I apply it to the
Our nail stamping polish
is similar to regular nail polish in that it will separate in the bottle over time if it's not used for awhile. We sell mixing marbles that work great. Put one marble in the bottle and shake well and you're good to go.
QUESTION: My stamping polish seems to have thickened up in the bottle and my stamper won't pick it up? Is there a way to thin it out?
Over time, stamping polish will start to thicken especially our Metallic nail stamping polish. Our CjS Polish Thinner
works great. Start with putting in 1 drop, add a mixing marble, shake well and check the consistency. Put in another drop if it is still too thick. Be careful not to put in too much because you
can thin it out too much. It's possible to thin it out but it is not possible to thicken it back up.
