Indigo Bananas makes some fun stuff. We all know this. If you browse the tag here on the blog, you'll see this is fast becoming an oft-featured brand. I love the unique finishes and colors...and very few people can match her eye for fuchsias. I have a tiny trio of shades from the Halloween 2015 era...and looking at the shop, I see a few more I need to add to my collection.
Call me Mabel
I think I might have an Oops or a reformulation of this shade, because the one in the listing looks like a deeper pink. Of course, now I have to buy that one for comparisons sake. My
hoarder tendencies commitment to complete blog posts demands it. The shade I have is a cool toned pale rose pink super-ultra linear holo with a soft dusting of glitter. Looking at the Pantone Colors for 2016, I would swear that they saw this post before choosing...this pink fits right in. I used two thin coats + seche vite for these pictures.
Land Before Swine
Land Before Swine is a blackened olive jelly dripping in shifting orange-to-green shimmer and stuffed with iridescent flakies. I was initially worried about this one, as flaked jellies can be fussy for me...but this one behaved impeccably. I used three thin coats + SV and there was no pitting, dabbing, or complaining to be had.
Little Big Dipper
Little Big Dipper is a medium warm denim blue super-ultra linear holo swirling with multiple shades of glitter. This is another shade that would definitely fit the Pantone bill...see what I mean about them stealing my secrets?! The glitter in this is delightfully dense and makes this shade a stunner even without the sun to make it sing. I used two normal coats + a layer of SV for these pictures.
Do you have a favorite IB shade? Before this, I might have said one of her stellar fuchsias...but now I don't know. I think I need to do more "research" before I make my decision. Let's just hope my wallet survives.
