Whats Up Nails Stamping Nail Polish Swatches

Press  Sample 

Hey there!  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen quite a few posts using Whats Up Nails stamping polishes.  I thought it might be good to properly swatch them as regular polish and as stamping polish over black and white in case folks want to get a look at them individually.  This really have become staples in my collection and I've already gone through whole bottles of some of them that I use most often (I'm looking at you, black and white...rose gold, you're almost there too).  They apply great as regular polish though I can't speak to whether or not they stain since I always use a base and rarely keep the same mani on for more than a day and most stamp really opaque, even over black.  At the end of the post, I'll also post some manis I've done where I used quite a few of them together, just for fun.  

To begin, I used the Magnified Clear Stamper & Scraper for these swatches.  Below is how it worked right away.  No prep work required and perfect pickup.  This has also become a go to except that now I have gotten acetone on the plastic on the backside of it so part of it is cloudy.  I still do use it except have to try to pickup the image away from the cloudy part.  All swatches were done with 2 coats over the plain nails and stamping using stamping plates B048 Simple Shapes or B039 Geometric Trance (no longer available) on the black and white nails.  All were finished with Vibrant Vinyls Fast & Hard top coat and photographed in a light box with 5K bulbs.
