Stamping Polish List

I have a lot of people ask me about the best polishes for stamping and while I think most of the Konad polishes made specifically for stamping offer the most opaque, crisp results, there are other regular nail polishes out there that I have had good results with. As a general guideline most metallics/shimmers will stamp very nicely, this includes magnetic polishes. Polishes with glitter should be avoided, the glitter will just get stuck in your engravings. Polishes with more pigments will be your best option such as one-coat polishes. Below is a list of all the polishes I own that stamp very nicely over almost any color.

    Kim, what’s your best or favorite stamping white? I struggle with that when I want white on medium to light shades. Konad Special White gives me mixed results somehow. Price is no object if I find ‘the one.’ 😉

      I have yet to find one…I don’t really like white stamps so I haven’t really searched for a good one. I have a white by Milani, White on the Spot, that I like better than Konad but it can be iffy too.

      I bought sally hansen xtreme wear white and like it better than konad 😉

    I have found the As Seen On T.V. Hot Design pens are awesome for stamping. I had been using Konad and Bundle monster polish. I was experimenting with stuff I had already and found that the white, blue, raspberry, pink yellow & green are far better than any brand I have used. Give it a try. I wish I knew how to upload a picture to show how good they are. You can get them at any drugstore for 14.99.
