Once upon a time, not too long ago I was unaware of the vast world of indie polishes. And then I met Lorelei and my horizons were broadened! During a late night Etsy surf session I discovered Indigo Bananas. I immediately fell in love with her polishes.
The first one to catch my eye was Maui Wowee (Maui SE). This polish is very aptly named. It is a gorgeous ocean blue that does inspire images of tropical waters. This multichrome polish shifts through multiple shades of blue into periwinkle and purple depending on the light. And as if the gorgeous chrome shift isn’t enough, this polish also has a holographic shimmer.
This polish applied quite nicely. Two coats gave opaque coverage but the third coat really made it pop. Maui Wowee dries to a high shine without a top coat. The pictures just don’t catch the on nail beauty of this polish. I haven’t stopped staring at my nails all day. And dreaming of Hawaii.
I was so excited for this polish to arrive and I wasn’t disappointed. I can’t wait to try the other polishes I ordered. I can see Indigo Bananas quickly becoming a new favourite of mine. My only regret is that I didn’t order the larger bottle!
