Good morning all! I have another big post for you today. Indigo Bananas is one of my favorite indie brands. Andrea comes up with really gorgeous colors and her collections are fun. I am itching to get my fingers on her new collection inspired by Willy Wonka (the original with Gene Wilder, not the weird new one with Johnny Depp). But until I can get some of those I will show you the Indigo Bananas that I currently do have!
Up first I have Electric Unicorns. Electric Unicorns is a "periwinkle blue (or a medium, leaning lavender) creme packed with pale green duochrome glass flecks that also shift a green blue." This is a very pretty polish with lots of personality! My pictures are showing it much more blue that lavender - the macro is closets to the actual color. Electric Unicorns had a great formula that was fantastic to apply. I used 3 coats for full coverage. It did dry a bit dull so I used 1 layer of topcoat.
This beauty is A Thousand Dreams from the Endless Summer 2013 collection. I loved this entire collection and have been slowly picking them up one at a time. A Thousand Dreams has a pink/red base that shifts to "coral red, orange red and golden red." I adore the color but what I love most about it is the mixed linear holo and metallic finish. It's so fun and unique. The metallic finish almost gives it a frosty look, and it totally works. The formula on A Thousand Dreams was a little thin, but it built up perfectly in 3 layers and no topcoat.
With A Spoon In It comes from the Executive Holo collection. This is an amazing polish - the color, the holo effect, it's all fantastic. With A Spoon In It is described as a "light brown ('late' or taupe), with two kinds of shimmer in it: a greyish brown shimmer that has a slight pink shift (giving this polish a slight pink highlight) and small amounts of gold shimmer particles throughout." Formula and application were both great on this polish. I used 2 layers with no topcoat for complete coverage.
This is Moonlight (Clair de lune). Moonlight is a "super shiny, real silver flakie based polish that has purple, black and holographic microglitter in it." Despite this being a dense glitter polish it is very smooth. I really adore this polish and look forward to getting it's rose gold sibling, A Star To Sail By. Moonlight was a breeze to apply, so much glitter comes out with each brush dip and it all spreads nicely on the nails. You can use this polish on it's own or as a glitter topper. I used 3 coats alone for full coverage and no topcoat.
