This is my very first Lina polish and honestly, I am 100% impressed with it, but I expected to be anyway, I have some of their stamping plates and they are pretty awesome too. Alex from nail Artisan very kindly sent me Love Beads, a gold stamping polish from the Lina Queen of Carnival stamping polish range.
Lina stamping polishes are high pigment polishes, made specifically for stamping but because of ow opaque they are they can be used as a one coat, regular polish. They are also 7-free, cruelty free and vegan.
I stamped this design using the Lina Hipster, Geek or Chic 01 stamping plate, and as you can see, it’s a fantastic combo. I got fantastic pickup and the design has nice and crisps lines.
It dried super quick and when I applied the Seche Vite, even though I often do because I am super heavy handed, the polish didn’t smear.
And here is how Love Beads looks over black and white (image also from Hipster, Geek or Chic 01), it really stands out over darker colours and I think that goes for the whole range.
The bottle is a fairly large 10ml and has a super handy, wide brush that is great for covering an image on the plate quickly. The polish doesn’t have a super strong smell that I find you can often get with stamping polishes.
The Queen of Carnival stamping polishes are coming soon to Nail Artisan, so keep an eye out, and the Hipster, Geek or Chic 01, which is one of my favourite nerdy stamping plates, is out of stock at the moment but you can enter your email address here to get notified when it’s back in stock.
