Before we really get started, I want to say that I was actually really nervous to accept this press sample packet from Color4Nails. When you think of bloggers who stamp… my name will not come up. Do you remember the last time I showed off stamping? Yeah, me neither. I decided to do it though, and I’m glad I did. So here is an amateur stampers review of the Color4Nails X Celestial Holographic Stamping Polish!
So we have 5 holographic stamping polishes to work with here. I decided to do each color over black and each color over white… and then I actually used them on their own as normal polish. These are fairly versatile, which is always good for any polish purchase. Makes you feel like your buck stretched further!
Okay, so we’re gonna jump right in. I used my trusty Konad Stamper and a Bundlemonster plate I picked up somewhere. I didn’t want to get too fancy, but I wanted a full nail image to really test these babies.

Azure is a holographic azure blue.
(Sorry, I apparently didn’t clean all the yellow off the plate for this one!)
Blush is a medium blush pink holographic.
Orchid is a medium cool toned purple holographic. This one has one of the stronger holographic effect of the set.
Poppy is a medium cool toned red holographic. Another stronger holographic shade and my favorite of the group.
Zinnia is a medium golden yellow holographic. Another strong holo effect shade, but not quite as strong as Orchid and Poppy.
Now the full manicures!
Color4Nails X Celestial Holographic Stamping Polish Overview
My initial impression when opening the package? “OMG what did I agree to?!” HOWEVER – once I got started, they were so easy and I picked up the images super easy and whipped right though the stamping. They don’t dry super fast, so I had a bit of time to calm myself and roll the image onto my nails. I like that there are softer shades (Blush and Zinnia) and bolder colors (Orchid, Azure and Poppy) They showed up really nicely over white, and while the main color can be harder to see over black – you can still see a sparkling image.
As an incredibly inexperienced stamper – I feel like these are good to have for practicing because it made me feel like less of a stamping failure. I kind of felt accomplished when I was done because I did it on the first try for each stamp. That’s right… first time. Bam. I win.
Of course if you like the color but aren’t sure if you will stamp or want to get into stamping – they work great as a solid polish as well. Azure applies a little streaky, but overall not bad for the rest.
Of course these 5 holo shades are additions to the C4N & Celestial stamping line, so there are more shades if you wanted to snag some more.
