Looking to level up your manicures without a pricey trip to the salon? Nail stamping is a great way to do just that. The best nail stamping kits offer plenty of design options and include the proper tools for easy application. This somewhat new nail art technique involves transferring designs to your nails with the use of a stamper. Essentially, you apply nail polish onto an etched metal plate, gently scrape away the excess polish and, using the squishy part of your stamping tool, pick up the image and then roll it onto your nail. Ahead, we rounded up a few of the best nail stamping kits on the market.
