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”.

Tahitian Sun polishes adds sparkle to your fingers and toes!

Two sparkling summertime metallics from Tahitian Sun. Metallic Silver and Metallic Gold. Those bottles!!!!

Okay, I’m a sucker for flashy polish bottles and Tahitian Sun custom polishes really hit home with my beach lovin’ heart with their sandy bottle tops with real starfish embellishments. Wow!

Tahitian Sun went full on with creativity and the beachy tropical theme reflects as well with the bottles and caps. I love the sandy lids with a real mini starfish on top!

And now for the fun part. Here are two of their sparkling metallics. Metallic Silver and Gold. And a luscious berry shade, Raspberry.

Tahitian Sun Metallic Silver is a silver glitter metallic Nail Polish in a super opaque metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. 1-2 coats of this sparkler!

Tahitian Sun Metallic Gold is a sparkly gold Nail Polish in a glitter metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. I used 3 smooth coats here.

Gorgeous Tahitian Sun Raspberry! 2-3 coats, here is two. I also added a gel-like top coat. There is a slightly textured glossy finish due to the ton of holo within. A good heavy duty topcoat will smooth that right out.

Tahitian Sun Raspberry is a heavy holo raspberry red in a jelly-like raspberry base.

I can’t wait to try more. Besides their willingness and ability to create custom colors and formulas, there are a ton of options from the menu. Here are the details on how to get yours! They take Amazon, AMEX, Discover, MC, VISA and Paypal.

Ingredients info:

Toxic Free Ingredients (5-FREE)
All of our products contain “No Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalat, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor”. We take pride in being a toxic 5-Free alternative.
Toluene. The least harmful of the toxic trio, toluene is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that is found in paints, thinners, and inks. Despite giving nail polish its ability to dry quickly, toluene is still a harmful chemical. The ingredient is also classified by the California Department Of Public Health Occupational Health Branch California Safe Cosmetics Program as cancer-causing.
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP). DBP is a carcinogen found in paints, plastics, and pesticides that stops nail polish from being brittle. It is classified by the European Union as a suspected endocrine disrupter and Health Canada has linked it to liver and kidney failure in children.
Formaldehyde. Similar to DBP, formaldehyde is also classified as a known human carcinogen by The International Agency for Research on Cancer. It allows nail polish to harden and chip less, but can lead to fatigue, skin irritation, and immune dysfunction in users.
Formaldehyde resin. While similar to formaldehyde, no link between cancer and formaldehyde resin has been found. The resin helps strengthen nails, but is a skin allergen and immune system toxicant that can cause dermatitis.
Camphor. Camphor is created by distilling the bark of a camphor tree. Although natural, inhaling or having large exposure to camphor can be toxic, create irritation, and cause seizures in children.
 
 
STATEMENT REGARDING…
the (non) Use of Animal-Derived Ingredients in our Products

“We hereby confirm that the color additives we sell have not been the subject of animal testing for cosmetic purposes by or on behalf of this company. 
Certified organic (FD&C and D&C) dyes and pigments, non-certified organics and inorganic mineral colorants are made by chemical syntheses and are not manufactured with or derived from animal derived ingredients (except in the case of any product which contains Carmine, which is animal derived). Fillers, such as talc, mica, kaolin, etc., are derived solely from mineral ores, likewise without the use of animal ingredients.”

*These products were supplied to me for review purposes. I was not paid and all opinions are my own. Disclaimer: Differences in color depth, tone or opacity may slightly differ from some of those on the featured store’s web site. All swatches here are done on my long natural nails. Shades are as closely matched as possible between what you see on your computer or device (RGB) and real life.

CND Creative Play™ blacks and blues

If you read my recent post review on the new CND Creative Play™ line of 80 shades and formulas, you know by now the diverse selection available. In the next week or two I’ll be sharing more colors from this innovative collection. Please read first post from the other day! For now, enjoy with me a gorgeous black with holo, and a couple gorgeous blues!

CND Creative Play™ Turquoise Tidings is a 3-coat on it's own, or 1 coat over another color glitter fill jelly. By itself, it's a mermaidy combo of holo and iridescent glitters, and it's gorgeous over a dark shade, like you see here over Navy Brat CND Creative Play.

Here is two coats of CND Creative Play™ Nocturne It Up. In a very blackened jelly base, it's loaded, yet smooth, with holographic glitters in various sizes.

And Turquoise It Up, an ocean blue jelly filled with iridescent holographic glitter top coat, or you can accomplish full coverage in three coats on its own.

CONCLUSION: Love all of these. The creme is butter smooth and the jelly/glitter combos are pretty darn opaque and smooth in only 2-3 coats.

Back to basics with four Sparkle & Co gel polishes!

Whether you collect regular lacquers, extended wear gel-like nail polishes or full on soak off gel polishes, you always need the basics. Black, white, grey, neutrals, deep and light tones. If you like to do nail art, stamp, foundations for chromes and pigment powders, over gel polishes, you are going to want these! I threw in a super deep purple, because really, eggplant purples never go out of style! We also have today a pale dove grey, a deep neutral grey and of course, black.

#001 Black gel polish by Sparkle & Co. All of these are available now from OceansofBeauty.com. This basic, 2-coat black is an essential and the formula is aces!
