I am happy to share with you today the long awaited Metallics collection from MPolish!  Please read on for more pics and info!

As I mentioned in a previous blog post here, MPolish is releasing a new stamping polish collection on Monday, May 25th!  This will be the Metallics collection and will consist of six metallic stamping polishes in various colors.  Today I have two to show you.  Oh, and guess what...  MPolish is offering FREE SHIPPING to the US and Canada on ALL orders on Monday!!!  Woohoo!!  As in past collections, the Metallics collection will be Five-Free, cruelty-free, and is hand-blended in the US.

Mpolish is a press sample.  All other polishes purchased by me.
I was not compensated for this review.  All opinions are my own.

But there's not even a minimum spend on Monday 5/25!!

For my mani today, I decided I wanted to do something a little different.  I started with a base of Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator and a coat of OPI Nail Envy.  My base polish is Bear Pawlish Sacrifice.  Sacrifice is a stunning silver polish with a strong linear holo and holo micro glitter scattered throughout.  It is a very smooth polish and I had no trouble controlling it when polishing.  It is greatly pigmented so you could get away with one coat and it would be fully opaque, but I used two coats for this mani.

Sacrifice dries quickly and to a shiny finish.  I love the holo micro glitter in this polish.  This is no boring silver polish, oh no.  This polish has pizzazz!

I topped Sacrifice with Bear Pawlish Oso Quick, which is her new Four-Free quick drying topcoat.  I used a generous amount and had no shrinkage issues.  Oso Quick dries very shiny and doesn't dull holo at all.

I decided to stamp with my Pet'la Calaveras plate, which is chock full of sugar skull images and I love them all!!  I just wish they would completely fit on my nails.  I could shrink them, but I definitely need to practice that more.

I stamped using MPolish Baroque, which is a rosy metallic, and Elizabethan, which is a chocolate brown metallic.  I alternated the colors on my fingers, and stamped with both on my thumb.  Both Baroque and Elizabethan are wonderful to stamp with.  I had no issues with them drying too quickly, and they both provided full coverage with no bald spots.

Since there is a lot of open space in these images (and come on, they are sugar skulls!!), I figured these skulls needed some COLOR!  I lead lighted with three polishes from In The Name Of Polish's Hard Knock Life neon jellies collection.   I also accidentally stamped a skull upside down on my Cindy hand, so I went with it and stamped all of them the same way on Cindy.  That way I can enjoy this mani myself!  ;-)  The cute hand pose I used below is inspired by IG@SloppySwatches (she's got a YouTube channel as well, check her out!).

Below you can see the multicolored stamping I did on my thumb nail with MPolish Baroque and Elizabethan.  And whoops, my lead lighting was a bit sloppy...
