Ever After Polish Stamp It Up Collection Pastel Set Swatches and Review

I have a big post for you today for a collection that does a lot of different stuff! The Ever After Polish Stamp It Up Collection Pastel Set makes claims to function as regular polishes, stamping polishes, and for water marbling. Now, that is a tall order, since not all of these things always go together. Sometimes stamping polishes can be too thick to water marble or spread easily as regular polishes. Not the case here, though, these miraculously do all of these tasks with ease, even for me, a reluctant and nervous middle-skilled nail artist. Let's check them out!

First, let's start with regular swatches. These all covered in a single thin coat though I did two coats on the white for the most even coverage. They dried quickly and were close to self-leveling. Bravo!

Ever After Polish Alaina (S1) is a turquoise creme.

Now for the nail art! These all picked up perfectly and were very forgiving. The white was a tiny bit less opaque than the others, but this is only visible in my macro shots - in real life everything looked perfect.

Here is  Ever After Polish Alaina (S1) stamped with White As Snow (S5) and Juliana (S3) using the Über Chic 20-02 plate, which includes images for double stamping.

Next up is Ever After Polish Kaysen (S4) stamped with Alaina (S1) and White As Snow (S5) using two images from the Lina Nail Art Supplies Make Your Mark 07 plate. I followed with matte top coat.

Here is Ever After Polish White As Snow (S5) stamped reverse with Alivia (S2) and filled in with Kaysen (S4) using the Moyou London Pro Collection XL - 21 and finished with matte top coat.

Finally, here is my water marble using all the polishes from the Ever After Polish Stamp It Up Collection Pastel Set. They spread nicely and opaquely and I just did a little swirling of the glass to get the rings to spread. I was amazed that they did so well with water marbling given that they are also so opaque as stampers!

Overall this is an amazing set of creme polishes that does everything well! I am not a particularly skilled nail artist and yet could fairly easily and reliably get good results with stamping and water marbling. That says a lot! The entire set is available for $35 or each polish can be purchased for $8. There is also a neon set if you prefer brights or want more options. Reluctant nail artists, this collection might give you the confidence boost you need to play around more!
