It’s not a secret anymore, you know that I’m addicted to stamping. So when I first discovered this new stamper, I immediately ordered it. It took a while to get to me, but as soon as I got it, which is yesterday I started playing with it. But before showing you more about this unique Clear Jelly Stamper, I started by applying on my nails two coats of Magic, the collab shade of piCture pOlish and LakkomLakkom.
Just a few words about Magic! Magic is really a nice shade! I love it’s duochrome finish! It shifts from gold to rose gold. And with the amazing scatter holo finish it makes it even more awesome! It’s a two coater. But you can definitely go with a third one if you want it to be even more opaque.
The Clear Jelly Stamper comes with a small plastic scraper and a note with instructions. Basically the advice is to not clean the stamper with Acetone. Personally I don’t recommend using nail polish remover either. At some point it’ll create some kind of white cast on the stamper and it will loose some of its transparency. Instead, I recommend avoiding any kind of remover and cleaning it with tape, I think it’s the safest.
The reason why I was excited about this Clear Jelly Stamper is that you can finally see through the stamper, and it’s amazing when it comes to placing a tiny design on your nail! Aligning and centering a design that covers the whole nail is pretty easy but placing a tiny one is trickier! I think it’s also a great stamper for reverse/advanced stamping as you’re able to preview the result from the back side of the stamper.
The Clear Jelly Stamper is a little firmer than the silicone squishy ones, but not as firm and hard as the Konad ones. But because it’s firmer, when you use it for reverse/advanced stamping, be sure that all of the colors are dry before pressing the stamper on the nail to prevent the colored parts from bleeding and therefore messing the design.
As you can see, it was very easy for me to place the tiny triangles. I also noticed that this stamper cannot catch very fine designs, and I tried with many different stamping polishes and the problem was always the same. With my Pueen stamper I do not have any problems with these fine designs which made me believe that the problem’s coming from the stamper. But it’s so fragile that I will not try the techniques we usually use with the silicone ones, as I don’t want to ruin it and I want it to stay transparent!
I hope these first impressions are enough for you to know if it’s the kind of stamper you might need or not. I’m going to see how it works with reverse/advanced stamping and will tell you about it in a in-depth review. If you want I made a quick video on Instagram so you can see it in action :)
Did you know about this stamper? Did you get it or are you going to buy it? What do you think about it?
