Mrs. P's Potions ONEders Swatches & Stamping

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have a really exciting collection set to be released this Saturday called ONEders.  It's exciting to me because it's from a local indie brand, Mrs. P's Potions, AND they're one-coater cremes that are formulated to stamp beautifully.  Bree (aka Mrs. P) asked me to swatch them as an avid stamper who just happens to live less than 10 minutes from her and I jumped at the chance.  I was so excited to use them that I even did all this testing while I was on vacation at the cabin.  Let me tell you, these are fantastic.  I'm accustomed to using stamping-specific polish that would never be able to be worn alone but these definitely rival them in terms of vibrance and ease of use.  But, word to the wise, do use a base coat with these.  They're so packed full of pigment that they do pose the risk of staining.


This collection consists of a white, black, nude, coral, mint green/aqua, pink and purple.  She is selling them also as two mini collections of the basics (white, black, nude) or the summers (coral, green, pink, purple).  All of them are applied as one coat, except for Turbulence.  To test out the stamping quality, I tried numerous brands of plates and stampers which I will list below.  And they didn't streak at all with HK Girl top coat.  Since I wasn't at home when I tested these, I didn't have my light box so the photos have more glare than usual but I think they're still color acccurate.

Lastly, I used these Summer Selections in a gradient over 1 coat of Turbulence.  This was honestly the easiest gradient ever.  I did one quick pass with the sponge and it was done.  It was then stamped with Obsidian and Bundle Monster BM-S408 for the cutest mani ever. 


I hope you agree that these ONEders really are a wonder.  Great one-coaters (or close to it) that stamp crispy even over black.  It's so nice to see something so versatile coming from a local maker.
