Review: It Girl Nail Art Stamping Polishes

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


When I reviewed It Girl Nail Art's new plates, I mentioned that they also just came out with some new stamping polishes. I showed them to you in my video reviews of the plates, which you can see here:






But I also want to give you a closer look and show you a couple of manicures so you can see the polishes in action!


I received It Girl Nail Art Ruby and Sapphire to review:

The polishes come in rectangular bottles, and contain 10.5 ml of polish. They're big 5-free, and they smell just like normal polish, no icky odor.

Ruby is a berry-leaning red metallic with tons of sparkle. It stamps easily and crisply:



And shows up over both white and black, although it does show up better over white:





And, very important for us stampers, it doesn't smudge when you add topcoat:





Sapphire is a deep royal blue metallic that performs just as beautifully as Ruby does:






So let's take a look at a couple of manicures! For my first manicure I used Zoya Alicia as my base, and then stamped using It Girl Nail Art fashion plate IG103:

Take a look at how crisp and clean the stamping is, and how rich the color is! Just gorgeous!


But I know what you're saying--let's see some stamping over a darker color. Okay then--I stamped Ruby over Shinespark Polish Pretty Unicorn, a similar deep burgundy holo multichrome, to see how it would show up:

For this I used It Girl Nail Art fashion plate IG105. Even though this color is dark and similar, Ruby stands out and shines with no problem at all.


So what do I think of these polishes? These are excellent quality metallic stamping polishes that give top-notch images, don't smear with topcoat, and show up well over a variety of polishes. I definitely recommend them, and I hope she keeps coming out with more colors!


You can find these polishes in the It Girl Nail Art Etsy store; if you've visited the Storenvy site previously, don't be confused, she's using the Etsy site exclusively now. You can also follow It Girl Nail Art on Facebook and Instagram for updates and information.


Happy stamping!
