It is also shorter and fatter than the other 2 stampers, with just one stamp head and not the second, smaller one. I didn’t ever really use the smaller ends on my other 2 stampers so I’m not missing them by using the new Creative Shop stamper.
The metal handle is a nice shape to hold in comparison to the others. The stamp head can be easily removed if you had to replace it.
The Creative Shop stamper is squishier than the other two stampers. This is really important for ladies with longer nails or high arched nails because it doesn’t put too much pressure on the nails. The Konad one is terrible for that because it is too firm to press and roll across a large nail. You can see the squish in the photo below, I’m not pressing very hard for that image. I bet you could stamp on toes using this stamper, too.
Some things to note about the Creative Shop stamper:
- Rolling is the best way to get the image off of the plate and onto the nail. I was used to pressing flat using other stampers but this stamp head doesn’t grab the image as well that way, so rolling is what I recommend. I had some image stretching when I tried to press the image flat onto my nail so I had best results rolling it onto the nail as well.
- To clean, I recommend a lint roller or tape. I never use remover to clean stampers like this because I don’t know if it will break down the silicone. Sometimes I take a piece of packing tape and loop it and press onto my glass table with the sticky side up so I can just roll the excess polish off of the stamper onto the tape before I use on the next nail.
- The color of the stamp head isn’t white so you can easily see any color of polish after you pick up the image to help with placement. This was a hard part about the white squishy stamper because using white polish was frustrating.
- As with any new stamper or nail art accessory, you have to play with it a bit to get used to how it works and find the techniques that work best for you and your nails.
