MPolish watermarble

Hey y'all! 

Today on the blog, I have these glorious watermarble nails brought to you by MPolish. MPolish is an up and coming indie polish brand that specializes in FIVE free stamping polish. 


I purchased the full spring line on the date of launch, February 17th and she sold out minutes later! Keep reading and you'll see why! 

Colors (left to right): Apricot Delight, Starflower, Apple Blossom, Sweet Clover, Snowberry, and Bells Of Ireland. 


The spring line of MPolish includes 6 iridescent colors that work best when stamped (or watermarbled in this case)   over a darker color. They are beautiful over almost any color but when you put them over a darker base, they almost glow. 

(I am loving the idea of taking a macro this way, I totally borrowed the idea from my friend Manna over at Manna's Manis. Go check her out!)


Here's a picture of the polishes I used for this marble:

Shown here (left to right): Essie protein base, Zoya Sailor, MPolish Apple Blossom, Snowberry, and Starflower, Seche Vite 


Pictures do not do these polishes justice, you really must see them in person. I cannot stop staring at my nails! 

Even though they're stamping polishes, I had to try watermarbling with them. My thought process went something like: I watermarble with the same mainstream polishes that I use for stamping > MPolish is a stamping polish so it's highly pigmented > let's give this a whirl. 


Isn't it beautiful? 

Now, I won't say that I had an easy time getting them to spread at first but I was using cold tap water. It's typically easier to get polish to spread in room temperature water. I will be trying this with them again using room temp water so I can report on their true watermarbling abilities. 
*****UPDATE: I tried marbling with them again with room temperature water and they spread like a dream!*****


What I can say is that these polishes are unlike any others I have in my collection of over 300 polishes both in quality and distinctive finish on the nail. You will not be disappointed in MPolish and you definitely need the whole collection even if you're not an avid stamper as they can be used for other nail art techniques! 

As I stated before, MPolish sold out during her launch, but she is currently accepting pre-orders for a second release of the full spring line. You can place your order HERE.

What polishes are you most looking forward to for the spring? Did you manage to snatch up some MPolish?

**these polishes were purchased by me. The review aspect of this post express opinions that are solely my own.**

  11. This is gorgeous! Yet another reason to move these up my wishlist. Just to clarify, though, is that Zoya Anchor or Sailor? Looks like Sailor, but I'm hardly a Zoya encyclopedia.
