M Polish "Polish Of My People" swatch and review! (Image heavy)

***Press sample***

Hey y'all! 

Today on the blog, I have a swatch and review of 4 polishes from the upcoming "Polish Of My People" collection debuting next week from M Polish! This is a very special collection because each of the polishes are loosely named for some of the nail friends that Megan, creator of M Polish, has met along her journey in the nail community.

The "Polish Of My People" collection from M Polish is a summer collection and features 7 super bright, almost neon polishes that stamp beautifully over light and dark colors. I was sent 4 of them to swatch and have lots of pictures to show you, so lets get started!

Let's talk about my first impression upon seeing these packages: WOW. I already own some M Polish that I purchased myself and love it so I had high hopes for these. They are very opaque, true to the color in the bottle, and stamp like a dream. Let's take a look at the images that I used for swatching - all of these images are from Moyou London's Sailor 06 plate. They came out very crisp and sharp, all of these stamps were done on first pickup. I had no issues getting a good image with any of them. The polishes have no smell that I noticed without putting my nose practically on the bottle. And as all of her other polishes are, this collection is FIVE free and cruelty free.

The first one that I swatched was Fresh Perspective. It can best be described as a hot pink stamping polish with a metallic finish. I swatched it here over black (Zoya Willa) and white (Zoya Purity) to show what it looks like over dark and light colors. Each of these stamps were first pick up. Again, no issues getting a clean image.

The next one that I swatched is called Hottie. It can best be described as a bright orange stamping polish with a metallic finish. It is swatched over Zoya Willa and Zoya Purity to show how it looks over both light and dark colors. I had no issues getting a clean image on this one either.

The third one that I swatched and one of my two favorites is called Scouting the Beach. It can best be described as a bright, neon yellow stamping polish with a metallic finish. I absolutely loved the way this one looked over black! Again, swatched over Zoya Willa and Purity to show its color properties over both light and dark colors. Once again, I had no issue with stamp pickup. Are you seeing a trend here yet? :D

Last, but most certainly not least, is my favorite of the bunch - Pish Plashin' Around. Now, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that my screen name is @pish.posh.polish. That's right folks, this one was named for me! Each of the other polishes have a similar story but I will leave it up to Megan or the ladies they were named for to reveal theirs. :) I love this polish so much - it is so perfect that she picked the blue one to name for me because I am a sucker for blue nail polish and this one is no exception to that. 

Pish Plashin' Around can best be described as an almost cornflower, summery blue stamping polish with a metallic finish. It is shown here over Zoya Willa and Purity to show its color properties over light and dark colors. You'll note that my thumb looks different in this picture, stay tuned to further posts about this collection to find out why. ;)

As I said previously, I already own M Polish that I purchased with my own money, so I knew the quality standards of this brand. I am pleased to say that this collection met those standards and then some. I can't wait for her to launch the line so I can buy a full sized version of these and the 3 I don't yet have. The "Polish Of My People" collection launches next week, day and time to be announced so make sure to follow M Polish on INSTAGRAM to find out specifics. You can also sign up for her newsletter on her store's website HERE


Do you think you'll pick up any M Polish when this collection launches? What other summer collections are you most looking forward to?

  5. Even though these are "stamping polishes" can you just wear them as regular polishes? If so, could you do actual swatches of them?

    1. You can wear them on their own but they're very thick since they're meant for stamping.
