My first review of stamping polish (Mundo de unas swatches) was very successful and I finally found time to make another one. This time I chose bright metallic colors from Kleancolor polish, which you can buy on Amazon or directly on their web site kleancolor.com. I purchased Awesome metallic set with 12 polishes. All of them stamp really well, with two exceptions White polish basically gives only sparkle (Figure 4) and yellow is not very visible on white background (Figure 2). otherwise i was really happy with results. Below you can find detailed pictures with stamping over Black&White backgrounds. There is one drawback of Kleancolor polish it's known to stain nails and stampers. At the end of my review (Figure 5) I show how this staining looks on transparent Creative shop stamper and you can find out which polish gives more staining. The good news is that this polish is easy to clean up from skin and nails using sticky tape. Swatch pictures (Figure 2-4) were taken under LED light lamp, so there is no variation in the light setting between them.

Figure 2. Orange, yellow and green.
Figure 3. Red, pink and purple.
Figure 4. White, black and blue.
Figure 5. Staining alert. These two pictures show staining of transparent Creative shop scraper (bottom row) after scraping these polishes. Staining goes away after several cleanings with nail polish remover (all except green one, it's still there). Similar staining appears on the stamper (I used Creative shop stamper) and goes away after several cleanings with sticky tape. Black and white polish do not stain at all.
Figure 6. Application of top coat to test for smear revealed that polish 166 Fucshia smeared the most, followed by 165 Sapphire and 157 White subtle stamping almost disappeared. Others did not smear at all.
Happy stamping !!! Please ask your questions in comments.
