*Purchased by me
Today for my "Swatches & Do They Stamp?" post I have the China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection.  Sally Beauty Supply is currently having a sale Buy 1 get 1 free that expires tonight, look below for more details.  I took advantage of the deal and got the whole collection.  This collection has 6 nail polishes.

Do They Stamp? 

NO, but they are great to stamp over them! :) As you see in the pictures above they look gorgeous with stamping.  You can create beautiful manicures with them.  

**Please Note: These polish contain glitter in them that can ruin your plates.  They can scratch your plates and the small glitter can get suck in the images.  So be careful when trying them out on your stamping plates. 

I did have the courage to try them out for you guys.  I stamped them on paper using my Konad stamper and Bundle Monster plate BM-411.  Look:

China Glaze Seahorsin' Around, is the only one that looks promising, but I wouldn't use them as stamping polishes.  They are so beautiful by their own. 

My thoughts: 

I really love this collection.  They are so beautiful with or with a top coat. China Glaze Seahorsin' Around stained my cuticles a little, so be careful with that one.

My favs are:
1.  Wish On A Starfish
2.  Sand Dolla Make You Holla
3.  Shell We Dance?

They are gorgeous colors to use with nail stamping.  I do not recommend them to be used as nail stamping polishes. 

I hope you enjoyed my post.  What do you think?  Will you be purchasing this collection?  Let me know in the comment section below.

Happy Stamping!!



  1. Your stamped swatches look soooo nice! Great choice of plates! :)
