I wasn't sure what to expect from the stamping polish since I've never tried one. I've only used regular polishes. What made it so special? It's black. A real black. Like ink. It wasn't a faded black like my normal polish. The other huge difference I noticed is how messy this polish can get - again, similar to ink. I only have an acetone based nail polish remover which removed most of the polish, but smeared some of it around too, which means I got some on my hands as well, and that wouldn't come off. Unless I used soap & water. Nothing fancy. Just soap and water.
Even after waiting several minutes for the stamping polish to dry (it really only takes less than a minute), applying a topcoat smeared the design a little :( Make sure to apply a very thin coat first. Even then, it could smudge a little.
