Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have a review of the Temix black stamping polish from bornprettystore to share with you. This is a pretty good black stamping polish in terms of quality but I do have a few reservations about it, so let's jump right in and I'll let you know all of my thoughts!
First impressions about this polish were that its consistency and formula were pretty standard for a stamping polish. I found the polish to be very thick and inky, which is to be expected from a creme stamping polish. I was slightly off put by the smell - the only other polishes I stamp with are either regular nail polish or M Polish stamping polishes, neither of which have a very strong smell in comparison. Temix has a smell more similar to Seche Vite or other polishes that are not 3 free. That being said, I do not know the ingredients of this polish nor is it listed on the sight. I did email my contact at BPS to see if she could find out but she was unsure and told me that they would update the website when possible to reflect the ingredients list.
As far as actual stamping goes, Temix kinda hit right in the middle for me - while definitely more opaque than nail polish, it didn't play nicely with my Creative Shop stamper, and I had to use a sticky marshmallow stamper in order to be able to pick up an image without patchiness. The polish worked wonderfully with my marshmallow stamper but considering not everyone owns multiple stamping heads, I can imagine that this polish might be frustrating for some to use.
The image transferred nicely to my nail - in this case I used it to make a decal. The other polishes didn't smear the black around when I was filling in my image, nor did my topcoat smear the black image either.
Overall - I didn't really have issues with this polish and do think it works well, but it bothers me that I don't know the ingredients, particularly in light of the nail communities recent issues in transparency with another brand (looking at you, Mentality!) and I don't like that I can't use my preferred stamper with it.
