The Stampivator, much like a cultivator in farming, is a tool that creates lines (or in this case a design) to a field (or in this case, your nails). See what we did there? 😏🤓🌾
This two in one stamper is the best of both worlds, being that the vibrant green stamper works more as a sticky marshmallow stamper, which is easier for beginners or to pick up those trickier, intricate designs.😤
The top has a clear barrel which holds a clear stamping head that is not as sticky as the green but just as proficient; although, like many things, technique is key (as in maybe it doesn’t need as much pressure applied when picking up an image, or whether you feel it works best in either a rolling or dabbing motion, etc.) - whichever works best for you in terms of application, it definitely isn’t impossible to get the hang of! It’s quite easy actually, we’ve even left some tips below! ;)
Additionally, the clear stamping head and barrel allow and enable precise applications every. Single. Time! 😌
.... who doesn’t like or want that? 😍
Furthermore, the solid green stamper is perfect for designs where you’d need a contrast color in the background to see better in as far as the design/color scheme goes.
The stackable, compacted design helps when it comes to storing this stamper without fearing of any other tools in your drawer or organizer tearing at the rubber stamping heads at all!
On top of that, This stamper does come with a small scraping card that is neither super thick or extremely thin - making this scraper ideal.😏 It is bendable but firm and this in itself helps make sure you leave just the right amount of stamping polish into the grooves/design on the stamping plate BUT have taken off the excess that would muddy your image and just get in the way. 😩 It’s okay, this card is a good one.😎

- Stampers are used alongside stamping plates, using the correct Stamping Polish needed for it as not just any polish will do when it comes to stamping manicures.
- Remember not to touch the stamping heads so freely, as getting oil that comes from our own skin and such on the stamping heads makes it harder for the image to transfer from the stamping plate onto the stamper.
- If you have played around with it either intentionally cause it’s fun😅 or on accident somehow 👀 then no worries! Simply running the stamping heads (only) under water and using a gentle soap works wonders. Allow them to dry and plug them back into your addiction😌.... we mean stamper. 😳😂
- Be wary of using acetone near or on this product as it will mess with the product, making the plastic a frosted color instead of the clear it is originally. Acetone tends to do this to plastic and we don’t want to do this to our pretties and take away the shine! 😭
- Use a cuticle guard/latex to peel away the excess stamping image that doesn’t land on your nails, for an easy clean up! Grab some from us here.😋
- And lastly, clean up the remaining image from your stamper that didn’t make it into your mani by rolling the stamper head on a lint roller sheet. You can even tear a piece of tape and clean off the design from the stamping head that way as well! 😯🤗
Abide by these and you will be A-Okay! 👌🏼 😁
