Clear Smushy Stamper & Scraper
Note: The polish you use is very important when stamping. Please make sure you are using polishes intended for stamping. Stampers will not pick up all polishes.
- Apply nail polish to your nail. Apply a quick dry top coat and wait to dry.
- Apply nail polish to desired design on stamping plate.
- Grab your stamper and scraper. Tilting the scraper at a 45 degree angle, scrape the polish across the design quickly and strongly.
- Gently press the stamper over the stamping plate with a rolling motion to pick up the design.
- Ensure the design is on the stamper.
- Stamp the image over your nail with the same gentle rolling motion. NOTE: some have noticed that gently dropping the stamper directly above the image and picking up the image has worked better than the rolling motion.
- Apply a quick dry top coat to lock in your design!
Do not touch stamper head with hands, as the oils may damage the head. Use tape to clean stamper head.
After reading some of the reviews here, I was a little cautious about buying this stamper, but I really wanted a clear one and didn't want to go scouring the internet for other alternatives, so I made the purchase.
I am by all means a very novice stamper, and this one works great! I didn't have any issues either with picking up polish or with stamping it on my nail. The few issues I had could all be boiled down to user error (not making the correct motion when picking up or putting down polish, etc.), and with practice even those kinds of errors became few and far between.
I would highly recommend this stamper!
This review is coming from a casual stamper, so take it with a grain of salt.
Before this stamper, I had been using a very cheap dollar store dual ended stamper with a firm feeling to it. I was attracted to the idea that I could more easily place my stamping on my nail with something I could see through, so I finally decided, "Okay, I'll buy this."
First, apparently not all stampers have the same firmness (remember, I said *casual* stamper, not someone who does it a lot). I was very surprised at the texture, in a good way. (Honestly, if I can't ever figure this thing out I'll just use it as a stress ball.) It was very clear, and I looked forward to stamping with it, but then... I tried to prime it.
There were no instructions included in this, so after a lengthy Google search, I found that in order to prime a clear smushy stamper one must use dish soap and lukewarm water, a lint roller, and/or a paper towel. Thus, I began my journey to get rid of the stickiness.
The dish soap approach didn't work. It helped a little but after drying the stamp returned to its sticky splendor. Then I tried the paper towel approach with just gently wiping water over it to get the "residue" off. No luck. I tried the dry approach with the lint roller, trying to "pick up" the sticky outer layer. Once again, a failure.
Another internet search down the rabbit hole later, and I decided that I would use my absolute last resort: acetone. Now, I know you aren't supposed to use acetone on this kind of stamper since it's so delicate and it can blur the clarity of the stamper, but I gave it a shot. I used a Q-tip and acetone, then quickly rinsed off the stamper to get rid of any excess. It did dull the stamper, but it was still too sticky!
After more investigation, I found a post about using a Magic Eraser to gently buff the surface, and figured I couldn't do too much more damage and gave it a shot.
Mr. Clean had my back on this one-- it did the most to reduce stickiness, although it did make it a bit cloudy. Unfortunately, my stamper is still too sticky.
For reference, I tried doing simple stamping designs between each priming stage, but the stamper never picked anything up (aside from the engraved tray the designs were on). After the last one I managed to get a better pick up but I wasn't as impressed with it; my cheap dollar store firm stamper performed better.
I know that I've done a lot of searching and priming. Perhaps I made a mistake (or several) in the process. I feel this would be a much more effective product if it came with a good care and instruction manual.
This product gets its two stars for the scraper (perfectly functional, easy to maneuver) and for how stunningly clear the stamper head was (before I made it cloudy). Even after all the priming, I could still see where on my nail I was stamping, despite the blur, so when I can get it to transfer, it's easy to place.
I an horrible at Stamping but this stamper made me look like a pro

First of all let me say Twinkled T has the best stamping polish, my issue is purely with their stamper. So immediately after receiving the stamper the clear jelly head would not stay in the base. I tried using a little bit of pressure and it tore. I contacted Twinkled T to send me a replacement head. Unfortunately they sent me the wrong sized head. I ended up throwing the whole thing in the trash because I did not feel like contacting them a second time.

This stamping polish is fantastic! It's much better than the Maniology in my opinion. Most of the colors stamp over each other better and it works great even as a regular polish. Very happy with all of the products I've gotten so far from Twinkled T! Also, when I messaged a question I had about one of the colors - they got back to me quickly.
This is the best nail file I’ve ever used!!!
This was my first time trying the flakies. They are amazing and so easy to use. I absolutely am in love with this color pictures. Don’t even do it justice. If you’re on the fence about trying this product you should definitely probably try it.
Oh, I love these halo powders. They are absolutely gorgeous and so easy to use.
I’m too excited to use these charms and other nail art goodies in my future sets! Twinkle T’s charms are durable and easy to work with- along with being super cute! Thank you for bringing your awesome ideas to the nail art world, ladies!
The halloween nails I ordered are great! They are the perfect length and so adorable. I wish there were other options available for purchase.
I use this as a clean up brush. It’s a small brush so it can get just a little off the skin
This is one of my favourite nail tools I have ever bought. I usually do one hand at a time on different days so this works perfectly for removing polish without getting cotton stuck on my other hand. I use it a lot for stamping as well to clean the plates without disturbing my nail art. It is very easy to use.
Great color coating beautiful color, great customer service and quick delivery, loved the cute little daisy stickers and great price! 10/10 recommend
Very functional and pretty, works great.
This is my first time using rubber base and it is so easy to work with! It’s such a pretty color I just put a top coat on and wear it that way. My nails are so strong and when it’s time for a fill I file it down and do a fill in. There’s been no lifting either. It’s a great product and I can’t wait to order more!
Love every shape and length that I have tried of the gel extensions. They wear for weeks without any issues for me. These are by far superior quality to some I have used before.
I’ve been doing my own nails for 3 years now and have tried countless nail files - these glass files are simply amazing! They file your nails in a fraction of the time and require less force than a traditional nail file. Each file comes with a cover so you can bring it in your purse and not worry about damaging the file or other items in your bag. Highly recommend these!
These were super cute, but I love most that they are easy to apply because there aren't tiny pieces to complicate the design (for me)
