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.

I like to have star designs on my nails. Different shapes, size. And this star swirl adds a twist to it. Loving it!
love the formula of the Twinkled T's polishes. Colors are beautiful and very pigmented. Loved this wheel of charms. Has had great reception from my Clients
This brush is exactly what I was looking for. I needed a brush for nail painting when I have to apply mixed gel polish colors and this is amazing. Thank you Twinkled T.
I have used many different brands of nail polish and Twinkle T has to be the best by far. Only have to use one coat for full coverage and lasts for 2 to 2 and a half weeks. This is the only brand I will use from now on.
These make so pretty nail art. Im very happy with these!
I absolutely love these stickers! I use them on an accent finger and I am constantly getting compliments on them so I need to stock up on more:-)
Great experience! Products arrived beautifully packaged and in great shape. I absolutely love the stainless steel stampers and nail display. Thank you Twinkle T!
Of all the cleanup brushes I have tried, Twinkled T still makes the very best, longest lasting ones. Both beautiful and durable, they are simply perfect.
As someone completely new to stamping it was an incredible bang for buck, Honestly almost felt like I was stealing lol. The fact that you get to choose Two Polishes on top of getting all the other stuff, not to mention how much choice you have in all the options, it's just awesome! Definitely pic this up if youre considering, great for beginners.
I have only made 2 purchases here but very large ones and I am over the moon happy with my purchases. I have never bought a polish that lasted on my nails for over 2 weeks with only 1 coat. You guys are awesome.
Nice variety of size and colors
Fantasy Nail Vinyl Variety Pack
These are hands down the best nail files I’ve ever owned and used. They are easy to clean, do not need to be cleaned often, and genuinely feel good to use.
It's so cool that y'all offer this as an option for those of us that just want to try out different gels! Super affordable and the variety is great. Formula is very long-lasting!
Look I love Gel Baby, the formula is incredible and I love the twinkled t brand. My wallet on the other hand doesn’t love the price. This is a great way to get the colors you want at a lower price point. Every bottle I have received is minimally damaged and most of the time I have to look to find the imperfections.
