Indigo Bananas, Fall 2015 Holos

Press sample.  Indigo Bananas came out with some rich linear holos for fall, and I have three of them to review.  The polishes I was provided were inspired by The Princess Bride.  I've watched The Princess Bride a gazillion times.  It's one of those movies that I never get bored with.  First, the swatches and then the review.

Polish of Unusual Quality (P.O.U.Q).: magenta linear holo.  Three coats.  The name is a play on Rodents of Unusual Size (R.O.U.S).

 Indigo Montoya: blue/indigo linear holographic.  Three coats.  I love this play on the name, Inigo Montoya.  "Hello.  My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die."

Shrieking Teals: teal linear holographic.  Three coats.  The name is a play on the shrieking eels that almost ate Princess Buttercup.  NOTE: this is a stainer.  Use a base coat when applying.  Be careful when removing.

My opinion of these three shades is that they are pretty fantastic.  The color is rich and vibrant with a beautiful holo.  The formula was great and the application was also great.  I used three coats because it was my preference.  They look fine with two coats, but I like the added depth the third coat added. 

As stated above, the teal is a stainer.  I used a base coat and did not have staining.  However, when I removed it, there was some left on my cuticle.  I washed it off with whitening toothpaste.  I love the color, so the extra effort it takes in application and removal is worth it.

The Fall Holos are available now.  Minis are $7.25 and Full size are $12.00.  You can purchase this collection here.
