Many of you often ask yourself the question, can you use “normal” varnish for stamping or do you absolutely need a special stamping varnish? The absolute answer is: No… but… and yes, there is a but; In this article, your expert nail supplier Maryton will explain everything to you.
Stamping varnishes are more condensed in color, ie they are very pigmented and the consistency of the formula is thicker and more opaque, which allows the design to be really seen.
An ordinary varnish is thinner, the consistency is much more watery. So that means the polish won’t cling to the ridges and grooves of the stamping plates, instead it would run off, and it’s harder for the stamper to pick up the design and get an imprint clear.
The main difference between stamping polish and normal/regular polish is the formula. The thick consistency and the pigmentation make the stamping varnish very suitable for stamping. Can I use regular polish for stamping? Sure! but the result may not be what you want if the varnish is not sufficiently pigmented and thick.
