I picked up this lovely indigo (ish) glitter at Sephora during my annual bonus mega haul and have been trying to come up with a way to put it to good use. Looking through my stash, I thought it might go well with an interesting Sally Hansen Complete Manicure polish I picked up at the same time. Together, they make a lovely icy, snowing mani, good with the snow we've been having recently.
Indi-go With the Flow is an indigo glitter in small and large pieces, in a clear base. It almost looks silver on the nail which takes away a lot of the unique-ness. On, it's really not that interesting. In the bottle it looks like it could go all the way to actually being, well, indigo, but as you can see it just doesn't translate.
Underneath the glitter is Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Lavender Cloud. This one is actually interesting as it's soooo close to being white and yet can still be called lavender. I just haven't seen anything like it before. The coverage is nice although what you see here is three coats. Pale colours always do need that extra coat. I think I'll keep this one around to show off interesting glitters, as an alternative to hard white.
Finally, for something different, I added a coat of Milani Jewel FX in silver. I've written about that one here, if you want to know more about it.

The verdict: Meh to Indi-go With the Flow, yay to Lavender Cloud. Indi-go is just like so many other glitters out there, hex glitters in multiple sizes, could pass for silver. Lavender Cloud is really pretty and is a great alternative to white. The brush is great too.
On a side note, I got a new lens for my camera! You'll be seeing a lot more of the super macro shots so check back soon :D
I have that glitter and to me it looks indigo. it on a navy blue and that looks really good. It might bring out the color more too!ReplyDelete
