Indigo Bananas Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Collage IB

Ready for another new indie maker?  I was all set to review these polishes, but I wasn’t expecting them to knock me on my butt!

Indigo Bananas is a new indie polish maker that will take the polish world by storm!  I posted a sneak peek on my Facebook Page and the response was overwhelming!  Without a review people were commenting saying they bought it off JUST that one photo!  No review, nothing!  I was thrilled for Andrea!

Ready to see some swatches?  Let’s get to it!

Maui:

Maui Front

Here is the straight on view of Maui!  This is the first one I swatched and I was blown away!  Head on this shows as a strong teal with small holo glitters mixed in.  It shifts to a pretty blue and into a gorgeous purple.  I saw the bottle first and didn’t set my expectations too high because a lot of times duochromes in the bottle do not translate as well to the nail.  This one did.  Completely!  I used 3 coats on its own (no undies required!) and a glossy top coat!

Maui Side View:

Here is Maui angled a bit. You can see some of the color shift in this photo.  Spectacular, isn’t it?!

This is my favorite shot – it shows the shift beautifully.  This is a polish I will be wearing a lot!

Low-Key:

Low-Key Front

Low-Key is another duochrome polish, but it isn’t as obvious of a shift as Maui was.  This one shifts from an olive green to green to blue green.  Another stunning polish!  I used 2 coats for this one and a glossy top coat!

You can see a little more of the duochrome shift in this photo.

Again, a little more shift is visible in this shot.  Beautifully done Andrea!

Chill Out:

Chill Out Front

Chill Out is the glitter top coat I wanted to try!  A lot of Indigo Bananas polishes are duochromes, but I wanted to try a little mix and throw a glitter in.  This is a great glitter, even for people who usually shy away from it!  Chill Out is a mix of white and iridescent glitters in a clear base.  The glitters are all small hexes and squares.  Nothing chunky at all.  Pictured is just 1 coat of Chill Out over Sally Hansen Barracuda (I like white glitters over pale blues).  I didn’t need to manipulate the glitter at all, everything spread out evenly and the base wasn’t thick or runny at all.  Perfect application!

Chill Out Side View:

Chill Out is a very fine, very subtle glitter.  I only used 1 coat of top coat to smooth it out as well, so those that don’t like the feel of glitter – no worries here!

Gorgeous glitter topper!  So many possibilities for this baby <3

And that concludes my review for Indigo Bananas!  I really mean it when I say that she is really going to do well in the nail polish world.  All 3 polishes were perfect.  Application, pigmentation… just everything!

Nice post. I discover something even more difficult on various blogs everyday. It is going to often be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice just a little some thing from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some using the content on my blog whether or not you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

This could either be interpreted as an instant and complete refusal to be married to Paris, or it could just mean that Juliet was saying that the marriage would not be able to make her happy.
The article states “The president has gotten us involved in a war, but they won’t call it a war,” says
Peter Wehner, another Bush White House veteran. “Where is Washington taking us in, now, this new commitment of action.
