Nothing to Disclose
Oh my dearest readers. I cannot begin to express to you the amazingness that has happened over the weekend. Perhaps you are not aware of my penchant for flakie polishes and if not then allow me to enlighten you…I get faint at the thought of beautiful flakie polishes! They are by far and away one of my favorite things about nail polish and I
like love just about everything about nail polish. So when I saw Indigo Banana’s Summer Rains collection, I knew that some of them at the very least would find their way into my collection. I told my family that when I put the first one on that it was like the heavens opened up and choirs of angels sang in exultation over the loveliness of the polish…too much? I think not!
Now that your appetite for gorgeousness is whetted I’m going to show you two beautiful Indigo Bananas polishes that will likely send you running to their shop to order your own bottles of angel choir prompting beauty. First up we have Reign:
Reign is a stunning royal burgundy jelly polish with definite purple undertones to the rich deep red. Packed into that jelly is a golden microshimmer and color-shifting flakies. It looks like buried flames within the depths of the squishy jelly polish!
The formula on this was perfection. The jelly is sheer so it did take three thin coats to get this level of rich depth, but I don’t find that excessive and some people could definitely get away with 2 thin coats but the amount of free edge on my nails makes that difficult for jelly polishes particularly. The flakies and shimmer are very evenly distributed throughout. Now I’m no huge fan of matted nail polish…but flakies NEED to be matted for you to get an idea of the true beauty that they possess! So I added a bonus matte shot for you all so that you can bask in the glorious flakiliciousness.
Products used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Indigo Bananas – Reign; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat; Julep – Matte Topcoat
Next up is the one that sent me racing to the Indigo Bananas site to make my first purchase…Acid Ocean:
Now do you see what I mean about the heavens opening up and choirs of angels singing? Yeah. This beauty is a deep blackened teal jelly base packed to the brim with a gold to bronze color shifting microshimmer and color shifting flakies! Seriously beautiful.
Just look at that (excuse those little white dots, my matte topcoat is about to be replaced ASAP). I haven’t said it in awhile but this polish is AH-mazing! The formula is just like Reign – perfection. In fact I found both of these to be insanely easy to work with and very controllable. They also cleaned up nicely even though they are highly pigmented.
