White Nail Polish Stamping Comparison


     I hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather was so nice here that some friends and I got together for a BBQ and outside games. I might have even gotten a slight tan! I love the warmer weather and everything that it brings. For today's post I'm doing a comparison of white nail polishes and how well they stamp. You might remember my previous post about black nail polishes or you might not it was quite a few months ago. I sort of got sidetracked when it came to making this a series. oops! 

     For this comparison I used Konad stamping white, Sinful Colors Snow me White, Milani White on the Spot and Finger Paints Paper Mache and image plate SH213 from Shandy. Just like last time I wanted a design that had a lot of detail to it to really see just how well the polishes would work.  Let's take a look at my results. For this test I used Sally Girl Curfew as my base color. 


     As you can see there are a few patchy spot in the Konad design. This is due mainly to user error. I scraped a little too hard and removed a lot of polish. I didn't notice it until after the image was already on my nail.  Not the most accurate for testing I know but I think you can still get a good idea of how it works so I decided to not re-do it. 

     All 4 polishes stamp well but they have different opacity to them. Surprisingly the Milani has the most opaque image even though it was the thinnest when applying it on the stamp. Sinful colors did the next best job as far as a crisp clear image goes.  The Konad and Finger Paints seem to be equal in opacity.

    
   Over all based off of this experience Id have to say that Milani White on the Spot is the best nail polish for stamping out of these 4. Even beating out the stamping specific polish from Konad. Impressive considering it's also the oldest of the 4. I've had this bottle for almost 3 years now. What so you think of these results? Are you surprised at which one's stamped the best?  Do you have a favorite white polish to stamp with? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  1. I picked up the Sinful last week exactly because I had heard it works for stamping, and I always struggle with white. I hope it proves to work for me, too!

  2. I think you should have good results with it. I've heard that a lot of the Sinful cremes work well for stamping. I'm planning on comparing more colors for stamping and I know I will use a lot of Sinful's for them. I like to include budget friendly options in these posts. That why there is something for every budget.

  4. Oh, that Milani works well! I love my Konad white but it's gotten quite thick, so it's reeeally opaque now.

  9. I love it when a polish stamps really opaque. Maybe I should try leaving the top off of mine for a few minutes to thicken it up.

  13. I haven't been able to get a bottle of Snow me White in ages *sob* it's as if the shops here think white is too boring to stock! Little do they know!

  14. I'm definitely surprised by your results and will have to try these other whites for stamping. Up till now, I have always just used Konad White.

  16. Awe that stinks! It's actually the color that is sold out most often at my Local Walgreens too. I think people go through black and white polish the most. Well those of us that do nail art anyway. =)

  17. I wouldn't go out and buy new whites if the Konad one is working for you. Although white and black at the two most popular colors I use in nail art so I figure I can never have too many. I just figured people could keep these in mind when looking for a good stamping white or if they want to try a new one.

  19. I love posts like this! Konad is my go-to for white, I've never thought of using my Snow Me White! I always thought it would be too sheer. Definitely need to give it a try now. :)
