I recently showed you a comparison of some dedicated gold stamping polishes to some Sally Hansen options available at your local drugstore. I’m back today with green!. Today I’m going to be comparing 6 green stamping polishes, 2 MdU, and 4 Sally Hansen.

Mundo de Unas – High Green

Green Stamping Polish - Mundo De Unas - High Green

MdU High Green is like other Mundo de Unas stamping polish. It’s incredibly thick, has a long working time, making it easier for novice stampers, and is very opaque and pigmented. Unfortunately, like other MdU polishes, the thick formula does make it prone to messier lines when viewed up close. Careful scraping and stable stamping can definitely help with this, but if you’re like me and are not a master stamper with perfect technique, High Green can show your errors. This should be the ideal green stamping polish, but it’s not my favourite.

14ml – $3.50 USD, 5ml- $1.65 USD

Available online only.

Shipping from Mexico – Zone A (NA shipping) ranges from $4 USD to $18USD depending on number and size of polishes purchased.

Stamps very well over dark and light colours.

Mundo de Unas – Lime

Green Stamping Polish - Mundo De Unas - Lime

MdU Lime is the same story as High Green. That said, the bright colour makes it an ideal lime green stamping polish over both light and dark colours. I love neon/bright stamping, so this is a staple in my collection. Lime is a true lime colour, not actually neon in nature, but it is bold and eye catching.

14ml – $3.50 USD, 5ml- $1.65 USD

Available online only.

Shipping from Mexico – Zone A (NA shipping) ranges from $4 USD to $18USD depending on number and size of polishes purchased.

Stamps very well over light and dark colours.

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure – Grass Slipper

Green Stamping Polish -Sally Hansen - Grass Slipper

Grass Slipper is the toned down, cleaner stamping, less pigmented version of MdU Lime. You can see the more muted tones in Grass Slipper above, but you can also see the cleaner lines that result from the more workable formula of this polish. This is a great stamper over light colours, but isn’t going to show up successfully over anything too dark.

14.8ml – $7.97 – $8.47 CAD (Walmart)

Available online at walmart.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart as well as in most major drugstores.

$5.97 Shipping Fee + $5 Order Handling Fee on Walmart.ca purchases under $25 CAD. $5.97 Shipping Fee and no handling fee on orders between $25 CAD and $50 CAD. Free shipping over $50 CAD.

Stamps poorly over dark, and very well over light colours.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri – I-Rush Luck

Green Stamping Polish -Sally Hansen - IRush Luck

I-Rush Luck can be described as a shamrock green (based on the name alone), and is the sort of medium leaf green I wish that MdU High Green was. This colour works well with many other colours, and has lovely, clean lines with both firm and squishy stampers. I-Rush Luck looks great over light colours, but doesn’t have the brightness or pigmentation to be used over darker colours.

9.17ml – $3.78 CAD (Walmart rollback), on deal for 2 for $7.00 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart

Available online at walmart.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart  as well as in most major drugstores.

Stamps poorly over dark, and very well over light colours.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri – Mint Sprint

Green Stamping Polish -Sally Hansen - Mint Sprint

Mint Sprint is the most pigmented Sally Hansen green I’ve found across all of their nail polish lines. It results in nice, clean lines with minimal gaps in thicker negative space areas. It’s easy to work with for stampers from beginner to expert, and it’s equally easy to use with firm and squishy stampers. This is a go-to green stamping polish colour for me.

9.17ml – $3.78 CAD (Walmart rollback), on deal for 2 for $7.00 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart

Available online at walmart.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart  as well as in most major drugstores.

$5.97 Shipping Fee + $5 Order Handling Fee on Walmart.ca purchases under $25 CAD. $5.97 Shipping Fee and no handling fee on orders between $25 CAD and $50 CAD. Free shipping over $50 CAD.

Stamps moderately well over dark, and very well over light colours.

Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear – Mint Sorbet

Green Stamping Polish -Sally Hansen - Mint Sorbet

Mint Sorbet is the only pale green I have from Sally Hansen or MdU, and it pulls its weight over light colours. Because this is a pastel, it will be a more subtle look over pale colours, but given the notoriously difficult formulas of many pastel polishes, I find the stamping performance on this impressive. Unfortunately, this isn’t really a green stamping polish.  Over very dark colours, the lines are crisp and visible, but the colour looks more white than green.

11.8ml – $2.47 CAD (Walmart rollback)

Available online at walmart.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart  as well as in most major drugstores.

$5.97 Shipping Fee + $5 Order Handling Fee on Walmart.ca purchases under $25 CAD. $5.97 Shipping Fee and no handling fee on orders between $25 CAD and $50 CAD. Free shipping over $50 CAD.

Stamps moderately well over dark and light colours.
