DIY Fast and Easy Stamping Summer Nails

I bought a nail art stamp kit a few months ago, I didn't really start playing with it till recently though. My sister enjoyed the stamps so I thought I'd give it a second chance earlier this month. I have really come around to it, it's pretty neat. The best part of it for my is that it is so quick.
When my fiance and I go somewhere my nails seem to to never be done so I do them quickly just before leaving. Since I do them so quickly they are never dry and as soon as I am in the car I noticed at least one nail messed up. With the stamps the polish is pretty much dry by the time it hits my nails & I have a few fast drying top coats so one coat of that and I am good to go.
Here's what you'll need: A top coat (I use Rimmel Base and Top Coat), feature colors for your stamps. nail stamping kit.
First, prep for your manicure, to make it last longer. Remove your old polish, if any, and soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes. Trim your nails and push back your cuticles but don't cut them. Do not use lotions or oils on your hands before you start, it may make the dry time longer.
If you'd like start with a clear or a color base coat. 
I just apply stamp to clean nails.
Apply polish to the disk, swipe with the scraper over the polish 
then pick it up with the stamper. 
Apply to you nail. 
You can apply more designs or more colors of one design like I have in the above pictures. 
When you are happy with the design of your name apply a top coat and you're done!
Thanks for viewing!
