Painted Polish – Midnight Mischief (The Complete Review)

So let’s talk stamping polish. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been on the lookout for a polish that stamps well, meaning won’t smear on the stamping plate and actually stamps opaque! I had the opportunity to go to Polish Con NYC earlier this year and I just so happened to find this perfect polish by chance! I had never heard of the indie brand Painted Polish before but decided to check it out and try out their stamping polish line and I am in loveeee.

The Highlights:

  • Black stamping polish
  • Highly pigmented
  • Bottle contains 2 steel balls for mixing
  • Bottle size – 13.2ml
  • 5-Free and cruelty-free

The application:

The brush is a standard size and as a base polish, it goes on super smooth and because it is so pigmented and the formula is thicker, you get coverage in one coat. It’s the blackest black I’ve every seen for a nail polish. I don’t know about you but some black polishes I’ve purchased have been slightly grey, sheer, or require many coats to cover the nail.

Does it last?

As a base polish, it doesn’t last too long, maybe about 2 -3 days without chip but when used in stamping designs, it does have a longer life span depending on what base polish you use.


It hard to remove haha. The drawback of having such a rich, highly pigmented dark polish is the fact that it leaves a bit of black residue on the nail, especially if you are wearing it for an extended length of time. This can be fixed with a high quality base coat, professional grade nail polish remover, and/or nail cleaner, or with a coat of another nail polish LOL!

Where to get it?

You can get a bottle directly from the brand website, Painted Polish .
