Anyway, it's here now and first impressions, it seems to be excellent.
I decided to do my test stamping over yesterday's mani, as and that was quite a dark base I thought I'd stamp with white. On the recommendation of a number of people I ordered Essence Stampy 001 (white) and 002 (black) from Wilko - £1.50 each!! and asked my husband to collect them on his way home from work.
I used Moyou London Kitty 14 with the white polish and stamped roses over the dark green base. The plate is mostly butterflies but I wasn't quite in the mood for them today. The white is excellent, really opaque and quite a lot brighter than I was prepared for - it is a proper white!
Since I was in test mode and had the time, I decided to try a second layer of stamping and chose more roses on Moyou London XL Pro 10, and the black Essence polish.
The black is matte but top coat really brought this alive and although I was in 2 minds about it at first, after a couple of hours I decided I really like it. The black and white are both excellent polishes and I think they work reasonably well over the green base. I expect the double stamping effect would be more successful over a brighter base, like a red or orange, but I am happy with this as a first attempt and I am delighted with the new stamper, it picked the images up really well.
