Today I have a super awesome box full of indie polish cremes, perfect for nail art and also just so beautiful on its own. This is the Créme á la Mode box, winter edition, which takes somewhat of a twist on normal holiday colors! Indies in the box are super great brands Indigo Bananas, Literary Lacquers, Octopus Party Nail Lacquer and Digital Nails.
And stay tuned until the end because I've put together some stamping to show off how these work in the nail stamping department!
First up we have the ever sultry Indigo Bananas Scarlet Night. This is a lovely squishy oxblood red polish, which is a bit crelly in consistency. Since it is a thinner formula this took three coats for opacity, but just look at that shine!
Next up we have is Literary Lacquers Breathing Dreams Like Air, this is a dusty purple creme polish with a lovely formula. Thicker than Scarlet Night, but applies like buttah in two perfect coats. Love this one, I want a sweater in just the same color!
Now we have a very non traditional holiday color, this is Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Malibu Stacy's Mom. Now while this isn't typical for winter, in California this can be a year round color. Especially since we're supposed to get a lot of rain this year, this will cheer me right up when I'm longing for some sunshine. This was also a lovely two coat formula, has a nice shiny finish.
Finally we have Digital Nails Arboreal. This is my type of color for sure, a lovely green leaning teal almost makes me think a bit of a bright juniper. I love this color with the oxblood red of Scarlet Night, they make a non typical Christmas pairing I hope to play with later this season for sure. This was also a great two coater formula.
Now to show you how they stamped, I used the same stamp to over three of the colors to show you how best to used these as stamps.
