Indigo Bananas

I think it's safe to say that those of us who are into polishes can all appreciate, or go totally bonkers for, a nice multichrome. As beautiful as they are however, it seems like there's always something difficult about them-- they're either too sheer, have a wonky formula, or the shift just doesn't translate from the bottle to the nail.

Well, not anymore! Indigo Bananas has formulated a series of multichromes with a vivid and wide spectrum of color shift that are opaque in only 2-3 coats. Here is what is currently my favorite polish ever, the heavenly Hermes.

Indigo Bananas Hermes

Hermes has a spectacular range of colors, shifting from navy blue to violet and fuchsia and nearly to a rusty orange. The icing on the cake is that, on top of it being a simply incredible multichrome, it also sparkles!

It's packed with micro holographic glitters that give it the perfect subtle sparkling accent. You really can enjoy Hermes in any lighting too, which is what I find so amazing. No craning your neck or holding your nails at awkward angles, the shift and the sparkles are always visible. It's seriously mesmerizing. Like, be-cautious-while-driving captivating!

The formula was excellent; it was easy to apply, wasn't too thick, and didn't pool. And it was opaque in three easy coats. I'm currently on day three of wear and have no chips and barely any tipwear, which for me is basically a miracle. Hermes has an almost metallic finish, while some of her other multichromes are glass flecks, for when you want a more textured type of awesome.

As per multichromes, in direct sun the shift is less apparent, but the holo glitter really sparkles!

Again, I didn't have to position my nails at extreme angles under just the right lighting, what you see in my pictures is how it actually looks all of the time. It's freakin' awesome!

In addition to these stunning multichromes, Indigo Bananas also has beautiful glitters, a lovely brilliant blue creme, and spectraflair topcoats to sparkle-ify your favorite colors. With such a wide range of beauties, I really think she has something for everyone, and there are definitely more to come! Check out Indigo Banana's shop on Etsy as well as her Facebook page for updates and new colors.
