Shadow Wizard answered it quite well but in writer's own words:

When asked how can Stormbreaker overpower the power of the completed Infinity Gauntlet, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely suggest that Eitri is responsible because of his "Dwarven magic": He made both items and made it so that Stormbreaker is able to defeat the Infinity Gauntlet. - wikia

Video for the same interview:


How did Stormbreaker withstand the power of an infinity stone?

Because it was forged from Uru metal which is the same metal used to forge the Infinity Gauntlet.

And since the Gauntlet can harness the power of the stones, surely it means the metal is resistant to their power.
