"Why is it purple"
"Wait, what setting is this?"
"I'VE TRIED SO MANY COMBINATIONS OF SETTINGS WHY DO YOU STILL LOOK PURPLE?!"
Once I uploaded the photos, I realized that they didn't look as bad as I'd feared. The display screen on my camera seems to make things look a little "off." I also think my camera may have been extra sensitive to the violet shimmer found in this polish. Sooooo just keep in mind that this polish isn't quite as purple as some of the pictures would lead you to believe, mmmkay?
Indigo Bananas Hot Ice Creams for Cold Days is a bright pink linear holo with violet color shifting shimmer, pink metallic glitter, and holographic blue glitter mixed in. It's pretty much a party in a bottle and I can hardly stand how bright and happy this polish is! I spent a good chunk of the day just admiring my nails. The holographic effect is very strong and the glitters add a unique twist. The formula is very good and full opacity is reached in 2-3 coats. It's better to do 3 thin coats because thin coats produce a stronger holographic effect. This polish does come with a stain warning, but I did not experience any staining.
