M Polish Winter 2015

Press sample.  M Polish Winter 2015 consists of six shades we come to expect from this awesome stamping polish line.  Three jewel toned, scattered holographic stamping polishes and three holographic and reflective metallics.  There's a lot to tell you about these stamping polishes.  Let's just start with the pictures and then we'll discuss the stamping properties.  Boom:

I was able to pick up and transfer each image well.  I didn't have any issues with them drying too quick or not picking up part of images.  They all performed amazing.

The metallics did change a bit with top coat.  Without top coat, they looked like what you see in the bottle.  Once I put a coat of top coat on, they looked like they melted.  It wasn't as opaque and became a lot more holo.  However, once they fully set, they transition back to the initial state.  Also, because they have reflective properties to them, the intensity and opaqueness change between lightings.  This is frost outdoors on a cloudy day:



See?  It's super shiny and platinum compared to my lightbox picture.  I'll show it to you again so you don't have to scroll up and get distracted.

 

The jewel toned polishes dry to a matte and dull finish.  With top coat, they get that sparkly feel that you want.  So, do not skip the top coat with any of these.

While all the shades look okay over white, they don't really have that oomph that I see when paired with a darker shade.  That's why I included a close up of dark base versus light base.  But, it's really all in preference of the user.

Just for shiggles, I used Carol for another project awhile back.  It's so pretty!:



The M Polish Winter 2015 collection will be available November 16 at 12:00 pm EST.

  1. I'm wondering if glitter got stuck in your plates when you used these? Great pictures, btw!

    1. There isn't any glitter in these polishes. They all have holo in them and the metallics have an addition of flakes. The flakes wipe off pretty easy.
