Foxy Paws I'm Blue and Purple Rain

Hey Hussies

Tonight I have two beautiful holographic polishes by Foxy Paws to share with you. Foxy Paws is a fresh new indie company from Denmark fronted by the lovely Charlotte. Her polishes are not only gorgeous but also have the amazing effect of making you sing! Her polishes draw inspiration from films and music, the two polishes I have to share with you today have had me singing the whole time I've been writing.

I hope you love these as much as I do...

I'm Blue

First up is I'm Blue (daba dee daba dow...) possibly showing my age here but this was a really popular song from my teen years by Eiffel 65 in the 1990's! 

Anyway, I'm Blue is an amazeballs bright royal blue scattered holographic polish. It has a rich and creamy formula that's almost a one coater. 

The swatches here show two coats of I'm Blue followed by a coat of Sehe Vite, top coat doesn't dull the holo effect.

Purple Rain

Next up we have Purple Rain (launches into a Prince style croon...)

Purple Rain is another creamy rich mid purple base with a more linear holographic finish. This polish is from the upcoming 80's collection.

The swatches here show two coats of Purple Rain followed by a coat of Seche Vite, once again the top coat did not dull the holo effect.

Indigo Bananas - Holographic PORN!

Hey Hussies!

Tonight I have three gorgeous holographic polishes from Indigo Bananas to share with you...

Alcatraz

Alcatraz is a dusty sea foam shade with a hint of teal and its deliciously holographic.

At first coat the formula seems a bit on the thin side but it builds to full opacity in three coats. The swatches here show three coats and a coat of Seche Vite (which doesn't dull the holo effect).

Do You Have A Flag?

Do You Have A Flag? is an **almost** white holographic polish. Its a very pale silvery white with white shimmer and pretty white flakies.

This polish can be used alone, as a topcoat over another polish or layered over a white base to maximise the white.

The swatches here show three coats of Do You Have A Flag? followed by a coat of Seche Vite.

The swatches here show three coats of With A Spoon In It, followed by a coat of Seche Vite.
