Colors By Llarowe - Stamping Polish Collection

*Press Sample*

I have a confession...I've been keeping a secret from you. A BIG secret! For months I've been using and testing the prototypes for the new Colors by Llarowe (CbL) Stamping Polish Collection! I'm sorry not to tell you, but I think you will forgive me when you see what Leah Ann has come up with!

If you ever wanted to know how much testing CbL puts into their polishes I can personally tell you its a lot. I received several stamping prototypes months ago, well before Christmas and I've been using them to test the color, consistency and stamping quality while providing my comments back to CbL. These polishes were being created and tweaked a year before I even received them!

When I received the final collection I was excited to see that the formulas had been revised ever so slightly and lots of holo added!

This stamping polish collection is huge! It includes 13 holo polishes and two multichromes. These polishes can be used for stamping or a full mani.  Polishes are thick and do require a top coat to bring out the sparkle to it's maximum effect.  It is not recommended to thin the polish.  Be sure to give the polish a good shake before use.  These are all smell free, 5-free and cruelty free! Each 12ml bottle will retail for $10.00 and be available for preorder beginning March 19th from 12:00-8:00 PM (Mountain time), that's 2:00-10:00 PM (Eastern).

Let's jump right in, because secrets are more fun when they're shared with EVERYONE! I wanted to show you each of the stamping polishes over a white and a black base so I used a swatch wheel to stamp patterns on.The consistency on all the polishes is really the same - perfect 1 coat wonders as a base and perfect for stamping. So grab your plates, stamper and lets get started!

THE HEART BLEEDS - is a Red holographic stamping polish. This is one of my favorites and shows up great over both white and black.

HEY ROMEO is a Magenta reddened pink holographic stamping polish. This was one of my favorites during testing and its even better now. Looks great over white and black. Below I stamped Hey Romeo over a neutral holo polish.

PINK LADY is a Light pink holographic stamping polish. Who wouldn't love this beauty?!

GOLDEN RULE is a Gold holographic stamping polish. This shows up better over light colored polishes but I still found it worked great over black. I know I will get a lot of use out of this color.

ENCHANTED FOREST is a Emerald Green holographic stamping polish. I'm using this in my St. Patrick's Day mani because I know the color will be perfect for shamrocks!

BLUE SKIES is a medium bright BLUE holographic stamping polish. Blue is my favorite color so this is one of my favorites. A stunner over white and black!

TURQ'D is a flawless Turquoise holographic stamping polish. Need I say more? I didn't think so.

ROYALTY is a Royal blue holographic stamping polish.  This blue is so rich! I consider this a must have!
SPARKLING DIAMONDS is a silver holographic stamping polish. I would also consider this a must have for your stamping polish collection.

LILAC PETALS is a medium Purple holographic stamping polish. This is one of my favorite polishes in the collection simple because its purple :) Below I paired it with CbL You're a Peach (which is an exclusive from the UberChic Launch Party) and images from the new UberChic Collection 8.

AMETHYST GLOW is a Light lavender holographic stamping polish. This polish has just a slight lavender hue to it and its a stunner! See a mani I did with it below!

CHIMNEY SWEEP is a Charcoal grey holographic stamping polish. I love grey polish and I'm pumped to have a grey, holo stamping polish.

PANTHER is a Jet black holographic stamping polish. Black stamping polish is basic but this takes it to the next level with holo. Everyone should have this stamping polish!

BUT WAIT!! THERE'S MORE! CbL is not only giving you holo stamping polishes, but how about some MULTICHROMES!! 
(que balloons, streamers and confetti! ok that just a celebration in my head :)  

CHAMELEON is a Magenta to blue to red to gold multi chrome stamping polish. SHIFTY is a Green to purple to pink to blue multi chrome stamping polish. These can also be used as a base color in addition to being used for stamping.

Here I paired Chameleon with Amethyst Glow for a geometric mani look!

Chameleon as a full coverage base

There you have it! These are seriously some of the best stamping polishes I've ever used. I love that they double as a base color in addition to being a stamping polish! The holo is up to CbL standards in every polish and they shine like diamonds in the sun! I'll even let you in on another secret, a collection of creme stamping polishes is coming later this year! 

The entire stamping polish collection launches March 19th for preorder from 12:00 - 8:00 PM on Llarowe's Website. Tell me which of these beauties you are going to pick up or what you think! I'd love to hear from you! Be sure to follow Colors by Llarowe on Instagram to see more with these and many other gorgeous polishes!
