Indigo Bananas Gravity Falls Collection

Hey everyone! Today I'm coming at ya with a review of a partial new collection coming out Thursday (tomorrow)!

*Press Samples*

This is half of the Indigo Bananas new Gravity Falls Halloween Collection. Gravity Falls is an animated Disney show that chronicles the adventures of twin siblings Mabel and Dipper in the mysterious town of Gravity Falls, Oregon. I've never watched it but it sound super cute!

Today I have three of the six piece collection to share with you. The whole collection is scheduled for release Thursday October 15 at 3 p.m. EST at the Indigo Bananas website.

First up we have Indigo Bananas Call Me Mabel and this is a gorgeous bright, slightly lavender leaning pink. This has an intense linear holo finish with a bright blue flash and it also has different sized holo pieces in it, giving it a scattered holo finish at the same time! This is two coats with top coat and the formula was great – not too thick or thin.

Next up we have Indigo Bananas Land Before Swine. This is a gorgeous red-brown shimmer polish, super vampy, with multicolored flakies. This is a great polish, looks super vampy in direct light, but when you look closer, you capture bits and pieces of the fun flakies. In indirect light, the flakies are on display, creating a party over the vamp! This is both sophisticated and fun at the same time! :) The formula was more jelly on this one, so the consistency was a bit thicker. I painted three coats for opacity, but most could probably get away with two coats.

And finally, we have my absolute favorite polish of these three, Indigo Bananas When are We? This is a gorgeous black jelly polish packed with hidden shimmer and sparkle. To the naked eye it just looks black, but get up close and boy are you in for a world of color. Inside the black jelly is shimmers of the whole rainbow, but captures a lot of green and blue. The sparkle on this looks different all the time, and maker Andrea said the pigment used is similar to the clarins 230 pigment, so basically this is vampy unicorn pee! The coats on this are thin, so it takes three coats to make opaque. Formula was easy to work with, not too thick or thin.

The rest of the collection includes Little Big Dipper (blue holographic with violet iridescent and and holo glitters), Holy Matrignomey (a silver holographic with holo glitters) and Carpet Diem (a nude polish with crystal flakies and holo glitter).

Once again, this collection releases Thursday October 15 at 3 p.m. EST on the Indigo Bananas website!
