If you live in the Great White North, you are probably already aware of the 150th birthday celebration soon approaching, which is kind of a big deal! I always make sure I’m rocking something festive for Canada Day, but this year I have the opportunity of going the extra mile with my look! Nail Polish Canada recently sent me some awesome maple leaf nail stencils to add some pizzazz to my manicure for the big day. I’ve also teamed up with them to give away some free nail stencils so that my fellow Canadian readers can also show some national pride for the big celebration! If you’d like to learn more about how to use the stencils and how to possibly grab some for yourself to try, please keep reading!
How to use vinyl nail stencils
These nail stencils are very simple to use! All you need to do is add a fresh base coat of nail polish (in this case, I’d suggest red or white!), wait for the coat to dry fully, apply the stencil over your nail, paint a thin layer of polish over the stencil, remove the stencil immediately after applying the polish, wait for the polish to dry, and finish off with a top coat.
Tips & Tricks
- Apply and remove the stencil with a pair of tweezers – they’re much easier to handle this way.
- Apply the thin coat of polish over the stencil using a sponge for cleaner lines and to prevent bleeding. Usually shimmer or metallic polishes work best for the stencil design.
