Stamping guide

This is a work in progress for now, I’m going to provide some basics on stamping art. I hope to eventually provide a basic tutorial and some tips.

For now, I’ve been documenting which polishes I like for stamping. Below are the ones I’ve tried and how they work. I’ve also included a couple that I haven’t tried myself but have heard about; these are starred. I’ve been working on uploading some pictures of comparison swatches, but I’m still working on that.

Great stamping polishes – these are my all time favorite stamping polishes. They are opaque and can be stamped clearly over both light and dark colors.

  • Sally Hansen Insta-dri – Silver Sweep (silver)
  • China Glaze – Passion (gold)
  • Essie – Good as gold (gold) *
  • Essie – Penny Talk (copper)*
  • Konad white
  • Konad black

Good stamping polishes  – these work pretty well but just don’t make the cut.

  • Essie – Scarlet O’Hara (red)
  • Konad red
  • Konad blue
  • Konad princess pink
  • Konad pastel pink
  • Konad lavender

Okay stamping polishes  – these will work depending on the look you’re going for, but aren’t very opaque

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri – Lightening (yellow)
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri – Mint sprint (teal)
