Hello everyone. Today I am coming back with a review of an amazing collection of stamping nail polishes. Colouralike Summertime collection is the latest addition in their stamping polish range. The collection consists of eight stamping polishes in warm summery colors with addition of blue and green.
In this post I am also going to show you a few stamping plates and a stamper from a brand Yours Cosmetics, which are also available on Colouralike website.
When I first saw these stamping polishes, I immediately thought of a summer sunset near the ocean with some green tropical plants. Most colors have a very warm tone, but you also get some contrasting shades. Overall, the colors are well thought and fitting for summer in my opinion.
I have been trying these polishes in the past few weeks and it was a very positive experience. I didn’t have any problems with any of the colors. They are very pigmented and pick up and transfer works well.
For my first look I applied Cirque Colors Kushy with a holo top coat We Trippy. I stamped a simple chevron design with Yours stamping plate Edgy Zebra and Beyond the Sea stamping nail polish. The design picked up beautifully and I got the zig zag almost to a perfection. The designs from this plate were performing really well.
My next look is definitely not as perfect as the first one. I used the stamping plate Yours – Is The Bar Okay and stamped with Colouralike Purple Rain. Besides this design, I tried other ones from that plate and some of them did not pick up at all… You can see the gaps in stamping and it was a real struggle. I am not a big fan of this one.
Lastly, we have a nail art made with Colouralike Papaya Swing and Orange Sky. These two colors look great together, as if they were made for each other. Field of Flowers by Yours was the stamping plate I used for this look. This plate was great and I didn’t have any problems.
For all the stamping looks in this post I was using the Halo Stamper from Yours Cosmetics. While the stamping plates were very hit or miss (still not sure whether I like them or not), this stamper is AMAZING!
It’s a transparent stamper, which is a huge plus with an aluminium holder and aluminium cap for protection. The stamper is slightly sticky and the squishiness is medium. So far, this is one of the best stampers I have tried. The quality is just amazing, it feels very sturdy and quite heavy. The designs are picking up with no problem. I’ve already tried it with other stamping plates in my collection and it’s performing well.
The downside to this product is definitely its price. It retails for €17.95 on Yours Cosmetics website. The stamper is currently sold out on Colouralike, but hopefully they will bring it back soon. I’d say, if you have the budget for this stamper, definitely go for it, you will be amazed at the quality!
What do you think of the Colouralike Summertime stamping collection? What is your favorite color?
If you are looking for good quality stamping polishes, I highly recommend checking out this brand. Colouralike Summertime polishes currently retail at €6 each or €43.20, which is a great price!
The stamping plates retail at €7 each, which is a steep price in my opinion, especially because the plates are small with 4 designs on each of them. I honestly think there are better plates out there for much lower price.
