Indigo Bananas Skittlette!

Press Sample

Good morning, readers! Today's post is one that I previewed on my instagram (@adventuresinacetone) last weekend, so come follow if you aren't already! I post manis on there that don't make it to this blog occasionally. This was the mani I wore the entire weekend with barely any tip wear and I loved it! The color combo was so fun and the blingy pinky accent nail sealed the deal.

The polishes used were all from Indigo Bananas and really gorgeous! Here are their descriptions straight from the Etsy Shop:

Immortal Game: "Immortal Game is a teal / aqua 'crelly' (pastel jelly / creme hybrid) packed with lavender-pink to gold duochrome glass fleck pigment of a very large particle size, so the shimmer is very obvious and strong. There is also subtle scattered purple flecks as well as a small amount of holographic microfine glitter in this - neither of which want to show up for the camera!"

Electric Unicorns: "Do androids dream of electric sheep? No. They dream of electric unicorns!
Electric Unicorns is a periwinkle blue (or a medium, blue leaning lavender) creme packed with pale green duochrome glass flecks that also shift a green blue, and a stronger blue at steeper angles. There is also a scattering of superfine pink shimmer, as well as small amounts of holographic silver shimmer - neither is super obvious, but gives this polish extra sparkle in the sun."

Moonlight (Clair de lune): "'Moonlight' (Clair de lune) is a super shiny, real silver flakie based polish that has purple, black and holographic microglitter in it - the effect is super silvery, metallic and smooth but with an interesting visual texture. Very chromelike indoors and very sparkly in the sun/outdoors. (Part of a duo set with "Earthshine (clair de terre)", a set inspired by Offenbach's opere 'Le voyage dans la lune' which is in turn based on Jules Vernes' 'From the Earth the Moon'.) "






I've done 2 coats of Immortal Game above, stamped with Bundle Monster BM-411 and Pure Ice Silver Star, and used a detail brush and Moonlight to add extra sparkle to the hearts in the stamp design. Topped with one coat of HK Girl top coat. Immortal Game applied easily and the duochrome flecks are really apparent in this macro! Absolutely love it!


I've done 2 coats of Electric Unicorns above, with HK Girl top coat. It applied easily and the shimmer is a gorgeous color combo!


Above, I have 4 coats of Moonlight (Clair de lune). I almost stopped at 3 because it seemed like enough coverage but added a 4th for good measure. I can't get over how amazing this polish is, so blingy and in the sun you can see holo micro shimmer as well! LOVE LOVE LOVE

The bottles together are gorgeous as well!
