It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Decades and today I’m doing the 2000s. I’m honestly not too sure what colours or styles would best represent the 2000s – perhaps it is still too recent to discern what set the time apart. Instead, I’m going to give you a little bit of a nail art history lesson!
According to this article, nail stamping was first invented in 2002 by Konad. Look how far we have come since then – we are spoiled for choice with stamping plate designs and retailers! It all began in the 2000s when the introduction of stamping plates suddenly made manicures like this one become simple. I am grateful for the continuing innovation – my first attempts at stamping were truly struggles and I am so glad that squishy stampers and better etched plates have made this technique easier.
For this look, I started with a base of Cupcake Polish Berry Good Looking and stamped using Zoya Trixie and Born Pretty Store plate BP-73. Simple but effective!
Nail stamping had been around for a decade before I started getting really into nail art, so it’s strange to imagine that it wasn’t always a thing! I’m glad it is 🙂
