This spring, M Polish unveils one of the first independently created, hand mixed, cruelty free and Big-5 free stamping polishes to the nail art world. “I am a stamping addict” says M Polish founder Megan Patituce. I have a ton of stamping plates but I wanted the ability to make whatever color I wanted and have those colors be 5-free, because I know a lot of people are becoming increasingly concerned about what is in their polish.”
Spring 2015 Collection: On February 17, 2015, M Polish launched their maiden Spring 2015 collection. This 6 piece collection consists of Apple Blossom (light pink), Apricot Delight (light orange), Bells of Ireland (mint green), Snowberry (pearly white), Starflower (cornflower blue), and Sweetclover (duochrome yellow-green). Polishes will be available in individual 11 mL (full size) bottles for $6.50 and 5 mL (mini) bottles for $3.25. Full collections will also be sold at $36.00 for full size and $18.00 for mini bottles.
How to Use: Stamping polish is used in coordination with stamping plates and stampers available from a variety of companies. Paint the stamping plate with the M Polish of your choice, lightly scrape the excess polish off with your stamping scraper, and roll your stamper onto the design. To transfer to the nail, roll the stamper across your nail for a crisp image. M Polishes are designed to work best over dark polish bases.
I was excited to try a few looks but I was super nervous because as you may remember, I'm not very good at nail art. But I was really determined to try!
M Polish Snowberry is a white stamping polish without any shimmer. I was super happy that it was opaque right away. I used a base polish of China Glaze Pop The Trunk from the Spring 2015 Road Trip Collection and used my Konad Plate m64.
CHECK THAT OUT! This was my first attempt at stamping in like... 3 years. Crisp. I was super impressed with how well the polishes picked up on the plate and laid down on the nail.
M Polish Apple Blossom is a light pink stamping polish without shimmer. I used a base polish of China Glaze Boho Blues from the Spring 2015 Road Trip Collection and stamped with my Konad plate m63.
I was really happy with this delicate design. I probably should have used a darker base color to really make it pop but it was still lovely.
M Polish Starflower is a light blue stamping polish with a slight inner glow but no shimmer. I used a base color of JulieG Sour Grape from the 2015 Jelly Beans collection and stamped with my Konad plate m51.
Look how this blue pops!
M Polish has also launched a special, limited edition Mother's Day Duo called Mama Loves Polish Duo, available now until Mother's Day. The best part is that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the Avon 39 "The Walk to End Breast Cancer" for Rebekah so you're supporting a great cause. The duo is available $13.50.
M Polish Annette is a coral pink. I used a base color of Love, Angeline Did You Say Peppercorn?! from the Chateau Macaron collection and stamped with my Konad plate m25.
I love how soft and delicate this looks while being able to pick up the entire image.
M Polish Sliver of Hope is a silver metallic stamping polish. I used a base color of LVX Turkoise from the Spring 2015 collection and stamped with my Konad plate s6.
Look how opaque those squares are! Aces, M Polish, aces.
Notice that my water mark is a little different? That's because I was given the privilege to feature M Polish on Nail It online! Check out the article here.
M Polish already has a summer 2015 collection coming soon which I got to preview and let me tell you - it's going to knock your socks off. If you're looking for a great new indie company to support that specifically makes stamping polishes and is 5 free, here's your girl!
