3 Beauties from the Indigo Bananas – A Delos Holiday collection

Recently I got to try three of the Winter 2016 A Delos Holiday collection by Indigo Bananas. I want to jump right in here and say the formulas are perfect! So easy to apply, base coat recommended and top coat optional, they are shiny!

NOTE: I was going to get this posed over the weekend, but Saturday morning my son and I hit by a hit and run driver, we were coming out of a stop sign intersection in a residential area, and the cross traffic was empty, except…a guy came barreling down and I didn’t see him, and he hit me at a full 30 mph! We are ok, I’m still a bit sore but nothing broken, but my car 😥 The guy that ran into me took off, so there’s that. Anyway, thank God for insurance as he is nowhere to be found, yet. So I am back on my feet, onward and forward!

Here are these gorgeous polishes! ~Winter 2016 Collection~ A Delos Holiday…A tribute to Westworld, one of many worlds for your many holidays. Open the door and see what’s behind – a million little perfect pieces. A collection of novel multichromes, holographic and with holographic flakies~Oh, and they come in two sizes, 8 and 15 ml.

Great Beasts Once Roamed This World from the Indigo Bananas Winter 2016 A Delos Holiday collection is described as, “Great Beasts Once Roamed This World” is a vibrant color shifting multichrome nail polish, with a linear holographic effect as well as holographic flakies. A million little sparkly pieces, a million different colors.” And, Base color: orange-red/orange/gold
Finish: strong multichrome, linear holographic, holographic flakies
Roughness: smooth
# coats: two” She’s hot and she’s gorgeous! Two thin coats here with topcoat. Note: she will stain over acrylic or soak off gel base, so I recommend a base coat protector for that, is not supposed to stain natural nail.

Master of Your Reality from the Winter 2016 A Delos Holiday by Indigo Bananas (currently unavailable, contact them to find out), is a multichrome holographic color shifting 2-coater, smooth as butter! It shifts from deep purple/deep blue/medium teal with gorgeous silver holo flakies!

Two thin smooth coats of “These Violet Delights Have Violet Ends” by Indigo Bananas from the Winter 2016 A Delos Holiday, is described as, “a vibrant, very strongly color shifting multichrome nail polish, with a linear holographic effect as well as holographic flakies. A million little sparkly pieces, a million different colors.” And “Multiple thinner coats tend to give stronger and deeper holographic effects compared to a single thicker coat.
Base color: dark fuchsia/violet, shifts gold
Finish: strong multichrome, linear holographic, holographic flakies
Roughness: smooth”.

Thank you so much Andrea for entrusting me with your beautiful lacquers! Readers, did I mention Andrea is a super sweetheart?!

Gah, I can't get enough of this 2 coater, Industrial Park. It is described as, "a beautifully unique muted blue shade from our upcoming Neutrals collection!"

Ahh, mon cherie! Here is Mon Amour from ILNP Fall 2016 collection. Isn't she dark and juicy? She is described as, "a luxuriously deep holographic beauty that will easily find a place in your heart! This intensely dark purple shade is borderline black in certain lighting conditions with a wonderfully saturated finish to it. Look closely and you'll find the combination of beautiful wine red shimmers in Mon Amour create the perfect foundation for this stunner! Last but not least, Mon Amour has been carefully accented with a variety of holographic micro-flakes and pigments to wrap it all up with the perfect finishing touch!" Nearly a 1 coater for me but 2 coats gives this beauty so much depth.

Welcome back! It’s always an exciting time around LacqueredLori’s swatch table when the seasons change. Lots of polish bottles line up waiting their turn and the fragrance of lacquer fills the air. Fall is here and like clockwork, ILNP never fails to make a bold entrance with their new line. Enter ILNP Fall Neutrals and Fall polishes for 2016. By the way, Pre-Orders begin September 16th!

I have 13 new polishes from ILNP to share with you for Fall 2016, but for today, we will start out with the first four. Let’s take a look!

Oh my goodness, Highline is a gorgeous mulichrome shade shifting stunner. No matter what direction the light comes in it never looks the same. From a strong golden brass, to pine green, burgundy to bronze, this one is breathtaking. 2 coats.

Clever Girl from the Fall 2016 ILNP collection is a delicate teal base highlighted with pinkish holographic sparkles. 2 to 3 coats, but I liked it more sheer using 2.

Alexander from the new Fall 2016 collection is described as, "a uniquely intricate holographic shade that sits on the line between olive-green, light brown, and even grey in certain types of lighting. Formulated for maximum depth, Alexander is packed with just the right amount of varying holographic pigments for a tremendously busy sparkle in direct light." Here he is in two coats.

Conclusion: So far and no surprise, each of these apply like butter, shine like heck and are the epitome of Autumn. I can’t wait to show you more so stay tuned!

What is your vegan/cruelty free policy?
ILNP absolutely does not test our products on animals nor do we purchase materials from suppliers that do. We make a conscious effort to avoid purchasing animal/insect derived materials like carmine and guanine/pearl, etc. as there are plenty of synthetic alternatives that perform the same or even better.

Are your nail polishes 3-Free?
Yes! All ILNP nail polishes are 3 free! They DO NOT contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate.

What does 3-Free mean?
3-Free means that our nail polishes do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate. These 3 ingredients were previously used in most nail polish formulations until recent studies found them to be potentially harmful or irritable to humans. While these chemicals aren’t illegal to use in nail polish (although California law requires special labeling if used), most large brands have already moved to 3-Free formulas at the urge of educated consumers as well as organizations that campaign for safe cosmetics.”

Some 2015 seasonal faves from Indigo Bananas

Andrea from Indigo Bananas sent me a beautiful selection of polishes from each season so I could show you the diversity of her products. Well, I ended up with seven, even though there are only four seasons. 😉 You know it’s like a potato chip, once you have one, it’s hard to stop! I was going to break up the post into two, but oh well, I couldn’t wait to show you. And she is having a grand sale right now. She’s going to be moving and rather busy (I know how she feels). Details below. In the meantime, let’s take a peak at what I have for you today. This should hold you over until her new collection comes to fruition!

From left, Land of Green Ginger from Spring 2015. And 3 creme neons from the summer 2015 Neon The 10th Element collection, the pink is named after the collection, Neon The 10th Element, then Carbon Dallas and Phlogiston Paradise!

Let’s start with The Land of Green Ginger. This really pops for a pastel! See how that slides off the tongue? Popping pastel!

The Land of Green Ginger from the Spring 2015 collection is a cool minty teal green, buttery smooth teaming with glass flecks. Two coats here. It is described as: "Land of Green Ginger is a light, mint green creme packed with gold & gold to green colorshifting glass fleck (large size) shimmers, and scattered holo. Very flattering green! This polish is quite a bit lighter than Immortal Game, and a mint color, so quite a bit warmer than the medium teal of Immortal Game, in addition to having a different mix of shimmer."

Nest up will be three gorgeous neons from the Neon The 10th Element collection. Starting with a brilliant pink named after the whole collection!

Neon The 10th Element is a brilliant, eye-popping Neon pink, and named after its collection from Indigo Bananas Summer 2015 release. It is described as: "Neon is the 10th Element - and is the brightest color in this collection. Eye searing hot pink.  This color is bright hot pink with no yellow cast."

Next up is Carbon Dallas. I love bright watery blues like this!

2 coats of this brilliant blue neon creme from Indigo Bananas Neon the 10th Element collection, Carbon Dallas. Of the three neons I'm presenting today, I left this one in it's natural state, they all dry satiny/semi matte, so you can see the finish. It is described as: "a blue/light blue neon creme that is semi-matte/satiny finish with two coats recommended."

Purple AND Neon? Yes please! Here is Phlogiston Paradise from the Neon The 10th Element collection.

Phlogiston Paradise from the Neon The 10th Element collection is a super opaque brilliant purple creme, 2 coats, as with all these. Just for a fun I included an accent nail using Hole In The Sky by Indigo Bananas. Somewhat because it looks cool. Plus if you ever saw (and appreciate the quirkiness of the film, The 5th Element) you can relate the "hole in the sky" reference. Stumped? Message me, LOL Anyway, it is described as: "Phlogiston Paradise is a purple creme; it leans more blue than other purple colors and is more violet-toned than royal purple-toned.  Swatch as pictured is two coats with top coat. As a neon, this polish will try semi-matte and not totally shiny. A top coat is recommended but not needed; the polish will become shiny with a day of wear if shine is a concern."

For the last three seasons, we have some Summer, Winter and Fall faves. Starting with Hole in The Sky from Summer Rains collex!

This one is GLORIOUS! Hole in the Sky from the Indigo Bananas Summer Rains collection in 2-3 coats. Great formula with tons of depth. It is described as: "The base of this color is a purple, but it is blue-leaning. The red to green shimmer and flakies in it give it a more purple cast. It photographs very blue in some lights (fluorescent) and with some cameras.  At an angle the flakes & shimmer shift green, and the polish will appear bluer. The linear holo effect is subtle (in order to not wash out the shimmer), but should be present in the sun and direct light.  Please apply three thin coats for ideal holographic effect (holo pigment is more linear when applied in a very thin layer)."

It photographs very blue in some lights (fluorescent) and with some cameras.  At an angle the flakes & shimmer shift green, and the polish will appear bluer. The linear holo effect is subtle (in order to not wash out the shimmer), but should be present in the sun and direct light.  Please apply three thin coats for ideal holographic effect (holo pigment is more linear when applied in a very thin layer).”

Everyone needs a teal holo, especially a linear! Here is Shrieking Teals from Fall.

Indigo Bananas Shrieking Teals from the Fall 2015 collection in two amazing coats. It is described as: "Shrieking Teals is a vibrant green leaning teal linear holographic. The holographic rainbow is slightly more subdued in this polish because of the vibrant color. Top coat affects the color of this polish a little bit - the polish is a deeper teal shade, it is shinier, and the holographic effect is a bit more pronounced but less linear.  Multiple thinner coats tend to give stronger and deeper holographic effects. **Important notes**: The pigments in this polish have the possibility of staining. However, the staining is temporary and on the nail surface and can be removed or fades on it's own. To remove such stains, the fastest method is with cuticle remover on top of the nail and light scrubbing.  A base coat prevents staining. Top coat is recommended for this polish for increased shine, and a slightly stronger holo."

And the last one is from Winter 2015, Night Gathers. Beautiful!

Gorgeous and sultry Night Gathers from Indigo Bananas Winter '15 collection. Two coats here! It is described as: "Night Gathers is an inky blue leaning black linear holographic polish. Two coats for full coverage, top coat recommended and does not affect the holo flame. Multiple thinner coats tend to give stronger and deeper holographic effects compared to a single thicker coat."

Conclusion: Loved all of these. The cool thing about neons, are they are bright and cheery. The coolest thing about these are you need no undies, no tighty whities! LOL They pop on their own. I highly recommend all these. No go shopping!

Here is the info on the Anniversary/ (3 years old on 2/1!) Clearance/Moving sale (also posted on Indigo Bananas Facebook page)!
“Indigo Bananas will be closed from Feb 9 – end of the month (we may open sooner but this is the latest it’ll be closed to). We’re relocating to a new state, so it’s time to have an Anniversary & Clearance/Moving Sale! (Indigo Bananas turns 3 on Feb 1st!)
No discount code needed, nearly all items in the shop are 10-40% off starting now (ends Feb 7 end of day). Most polishes are 30-40% off, however, and it stacks with gift certs & shipping promos. (The IB shop will be closed Feb 8-end of month at the latest).
Items in the discontinued section will not be restocked until further notice. Restocks, and a new release, in early March include: Winter 2015 Game of Thrones inspired collection, Fall Holos, and then Spring ’15 pastels, and neons will be restocked first week in March (with new releases). Older colors will be restocked at a later date. Indigo Bananas is part of the Creme a la Mode box and the next one is set for early March, so that color is the next one out for us!
Shipping will be going out asap, same day on weekdays, and shipments CANNOT be combined once you get a tracking number, since I’m on a time crunch – sorry! 🙂
****SHIPPING RATE CHANGES****
Shipping rates went up Jan 17, and I’ve adjusted them in the shop to match. Some rates are cheaper, some are more; mostly international is up. Shipping costs now cover a large weight range (8oz-32oz are the same for example!), so that’s why at some order weights it may seem less and sometimes more. Generally international is WAY up, US priority is WAY up, US first class is up for small amounts, and down for around 12-16oz.
IB has new shipping promos as a result:
* US free shipping over $50 (down from $60) (it’s actually way cheaper for me to ship first class)
* Canada – $5 flat rate above $100
* Mexico – $5 flat rate above $125
* Rest of World – $10 flat rate above $125

Baroness X Dreamscape Part II shines!

I have been dying to get this review out to my lovely readers for a couple of weeks now. I received this set right at Christmastime and I was also recovering from being sick most of December. My sweet hubby just has double carpal tunnel surgery the other day, well, on our anniversary! Needless to say, we are healing up nicely, my company has departed and the dust has settled in our house. 😉 I’m so excited to finally share these four gorgeous polishes with you. The Baroness X Dreamscape Part II collection is a simply put, “DREAMY”! Let’s take a look at these fabulous indie creations!

The Dreamscape Pt. II collection is a set of 4 iridescent shifty micro flakies and thin metallic shard glitter polishes. Opacity: use 1-2 coats as a topper over any color you'd like, looks best over black or complimenting darker colors. From left/rear: Dynastic, Phantasmic, Surrealistic and Etheric.

The formulas are smooth and glide nicely over any basecoat (and it is recommended that you use a deep, dark or black underneath to really show how these babies pop). They dry fairly smooth and I recommend a thin topcoat. They wear really well. After swatching all four of these, I wore one of them for full week, plus a couple of days. Although easy to remove, I had very little tip wear and no chipping. On with the Dreamscapes!

First up, Etheric!

Etheric seems like it was made for a glossy black undercoat. Shown here is one thin coat over Chloe & Bella "Blackout".

Etheric is described as: "Etheric is a glass flakie polish with fuchsia glitter shards. The flakies are a larger size which promotes a strong multichrome effect. Facing forward you can see a bright teal and it shifts over to blue, purple and then fuchsia. You can wear this on it's own but it looks great over black or complimenting colors."

Dynastic is a dynamo!

Dynastic shines golden with clever green/gold shifts over a deep blackened mahogany red by OPI, "I Sing in Color".

Phantasmic is like peering into the Caribbean!

Phantasmic gives off a mermaidy sheen...a really fluid shade shifter. Here I used one thin coat over "Poison Ivy", a deep blackened green shimmer by Wet 'N Wild.

And Surrealistic is stunning!

Surrealistic simply glows over black polish! Here I used one coat over "Blackout" and topcoated with "Crystal Clear" by Chloe & Bella.

I love how Demi includes glass buttons on the lid tops. Great for when you've got your giant Baroness X collection all crowded into a helmer drawer! The Dreamscape Pt. II collection, from left: Etheric, Dynastic, Phantasmic and Surrealistic.
