Multi-Chrome Comparison

Heya gals. I don't know about you, but I love, love, love comparison posts! It helps me decide which colors I need and which ones I can pass up on. My misfortune of buying near dupes can be of use to you! YAY! 

Here I have from L to R KB Shimmer Shade Shifter, ILNP Sirene, Colors by Llarowe Show Me Again!, Polish Me Silly Paradise. (Don't mind the weird side picture... my Alaskan-made light box is too small!)

Here you can see them again, L to R, Polish Me Silly, Colors by Llarowe, ILNP, and KB Shimmer. As you can see, the pointer and middle are almost identical except the CbL Sirene has a slight holographic shimmer and the PMS (can we just laugh together about this abbreviation for a moment?) Anyway, the PMS Paradise on the pointer has no holo shimmer. Other than that, I couldn't tell these polishes apart. Both were equally shifty and beautiful!

ILNP Sirene on the ring finger was noticeably more green but with with same purple shift. The KB Shimmer was probably the most different of the bunch. It is a deep blue with a dark purple shift. Absolutely stunning!

Here's a bonus shot PMS on my pointer and CbL on my middle finger. Aren't those pretty darn close aside from that tiny bit of holo shimmer? Yeah, I probably will be destashing these both. I'll probably keep the CbL just because it has the holographic in it, but both are gorgeous.

  1. These polishes look really fantastic! I wonder if they are highly pigmented so that they also can be used as stamping polishes? Have you already used them for stamping?

  2. Thank you! Unfortunately, every polish besides KbShimmer was three coats, so I don't think they'd work for stamping. Kbshimmer was one coat layered over two coats of black. (How did I not include that information?!) I'll post an edit to put that in, thanks for bringing it to my attention! If you're looking for some chromes that stamp, I hears the summer Sally Hansen color foil polishes stamp really well!
