M Polish “Cayuga” and “Pekin” Review!

Cayuga, Pekin

I am so excited for today’s demo and review! M Polish has released the black – Cayuga and the white – Pekin from the upcoming duck themed creams collection.  I did pick up the mini size of these, they are kind of too affordable not to! These retail for $9.50 for a full size 15 mL and $3.25 for the mini 5 mL size. So lets get right into it!

prsample2M  I’ll be using a base of Zoya Willa on my pinky and ring nails and Zoya Purity on my middle and indexy nails. I did 2 easy coats of each and then topcoated with KB Shimmer’s Clearly On Top. I also using stamping plate BP-L007 from bornprettystore.com

Let’s start with “Cayuga” first.

Cayuga is a dark creamy true black. Very opaque, it does dry to a matte finish and you will need to move fairly quickly to transfer the image to your nail before the polish begins drying. Completely opaque over white, as shown here.


Next up is “Pekin,” the white of the collection.



Pekin is an extremely creamy, very opaque, true white stamping polish. It dries down to a matte finish as well. I don’t feel like this dried down as quickly for me as compared to the black but the faster you can get it transferred the better the lines will be! Here it is, shown over black:

And here is the finished test mani! I found that both Pekin and Cayuga did well at picking up images with fine lines as well as image that were fairly thick. I am so happy to finally have a nice reliable 5 free option in such basic, awesome colors!
