Who is this course for?

This course is for you if you already know the materials and tools required for stamping and you are comfortable with applying the stamping technique. If you are confident about using the stamper, you can benefit much from this course, as you will learn how to create compositions and realize your ideas. This level requires the use of brush, and therefore it is an advantage if you know the basics of handling nail art brushes and you can paint lines. If you still have some skills to improve in this field, the video will provide you with useful guideline on the specific steps of the right brush handling technique, which you can much benefit from. You can learn how to build up complex decorations and how to think in terms of processes and make up the right order of steps. If you do the steps of decoration in the right order, then you will be able to create any nail art decoration combined with stamped patterns ranging from the relatively simple ones to the more complex designs.

About this course

Norka has implemented an exciting solution. Using stamping technique, she has prepared a brown, antique-like wood grain pattern to frame the portrait that she has also selected from a stamping plate. This unusual composition is astonishingly different than anything else, that’s why it is unique. Try it in other colors, and once you have learned the technique, you may replace wood grain pattern with lace pattern or floral background, and select any pattern of smaller size instead of the portrait. These are for inspiration only, feel free to realize your own ideas.

International nail art educator

Welcome to Now I should write something about me in a given length. Honestly, it makes me itty-bitty difficulty. If I am placed within definite bounds, I do not feel free. In contrast, in the nail art I have found the unlimited freedom. It can be a beautiful, hand-painted flower or a stamped design, creating something, only the imagination limits its boundaries.
As international nail art educator, I have been showing to thousands of my colleagues in many countries around the world the possibilities of the nail art, since 2009. My most popular nail art educations are the aquarelle painting, different gel painting and combined salon stamping courses.
According to others, my works are specified by precision, detailed craftmanship and constant renewing. Due to the you can also get some preview of my nail decorations. As international educator and product developer of Moyra Hungary, I guarantee that using our products, a new, more colourful world is waiting for you in the nail art.
