Swatch: Indigo Bananas Anansi

Blog post #1! I've got some pics of a really awesome polish from an indie polish maker, Indigo Bananas. (Please bear with me, as I'm still getting the hang of photographing nails!)

Indigo Bananas Anansi. Two coats with Zoya Armor topcoat.

Anansi is a gorgeous color-shifting glass fleck; it's primarily green but turns purple and maroon at certain angles. This polish kinda reminds me of the Wicked Witch of the West (in a good way!).

In the next two pics I was trying to catch more of the color shift, but you can see it better in the bottle (it's definitely present on the nail too).

The formula was very nice, neither too thick nor too thin. It stayed in place on the nail, rather than running into my cuticles (which can be a problem for me, since I tend to be sloppy at application!). The only thing I noticed is that if you go over the same spot too many times on the same coat, the polish can pull away and leave a bare spot. This only happened to me on one nail though, and was easy to fix.

You can buy Anansi at Indigo Bananas' Etsy shop ($10 for 15 ml or $4.50 for 5 ml).

The polish in this post was purchased by me; all opinions are my own.
