MASH Review: Nail Art Stamping Polish

Hello Lacquer Luvers! Today I have a review post for you all. I was asked to review MASH's Nail Art Polish for Stamping. After being so impressed with their last set of stamping plates, I accepted the offer with no hesitation. I hope you all enjoy this post.

Since I am reviewing their black and white stamping polishes I thought it would be best to test their opacity ability on contrasting colors. I used Bettina Matte (white) on my ring and index fingers and Bettina Onix (black) on my pinky, middle, and thumb.

I chose an image from MASH-45 and began stamping. On the fingers I painted black, I used their white stamping polish. On the fingers I painted white, I used their black stamping polish.

You all know that my go-to stamping polishes for black and white designs are from Konad so that's what I will be comparing these to. The first thing I noticed is that the polish bottles were larger than Konad's bottles. MASH Nail Art Polish is .50 fl oz while Konad's is .42 fl oz. The next thing I noticed was that the consistency of these polishes were considerably thinner than Konad's. For me, this leaves issues with opacity as you can see in the pictures. However, it also means that I am not in a rushed frenzy to transfer the image to my nails because it doesn't dry as fast on the plate.

Upon completion of this review, I would say that the MASH Nail Art Polish for Stamping is a great alternative. These work well especially for those of you who have gave up on stamping just because you can't get it fast enough (trust me, I've been there, too!). The price is fantastic as well! These retail on MASH's website for $5.99 and shipping is FREE! Overall, I think these polishes are fantastic for anyone starting out with stamping. I would definitely recommend these to beginners and pro's alike. If you are interested in purchasing these stamping polishes, just click on this link. MASH also offers a great variety of accessories, tools, and nail care products so make sure to check out their website As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!


**EDIT: I MUST add that these polishes clean up so much better and easier than Konad's. They do not stain and with a quick swipe of a q-tip dipped in nail polish remover or acetone it is GONE! That, my dears, is a HUGE plus!**


  1. How does the black polish clean up compared to Konads black?

    1. I can't believe I left that part out!! That is one of the best things about both of these. Clean-up is incredible. They do not stain and clean up is a breeze! Thanks for asking, I will edit this post. =)

  3. Beautiful mani. Glad these stamping polish work well. That's a lovely stamping design too. :-)

  4. Wow, the black on white lines are really crisp! I've been trying to stamp, but I think speed is still my biggest problem--switching to a different polish like these might be the answer!

  5. AMAZING!!!The lines are so crisp and clear! I might have to get those sometimes!!!
    Great review, thanks!!!
