I just ordered 3 new polishes (Son Of Fire, Maui SE & Dream A Little Dream) from Indigo Bananas‘ new collection (which you can find on her etsy shop here), so I figured while I am waiting on them in the mail I should finally get around to swatching the other polishes I have of hers I haven’t yet. First up is Do You Have A Flag. This is 3 coats with no top coat.
Indigo Bananas has this to say about the color:
Do You Have a Flag? is a white linear holo with a mix of four different white flecks/shimmers/mica and larger white flakies. The white pigments in this polish have a metallic shine to them, lighter than silver but more shiny/silvery than a white creme or crelly would be. The holo pigment on the other hand, is silvery and leans this polish toward light silver a bit (more so in the bottle than on the nail). The polish is not frosty, but shimmery and textured. Three coats solo, or one as a top coat over white or another color.
The polish applied smoothly, no complaints with application or the formula. In the shade/not direct light Do You Have A Flag? appears as a very light whitish silver, the holo effect comes out in the sun or direct light.
I love how the polish looks when the holo effect is showing up, but otherwise I just don’t think it’s a flattering color for my skintone, I tend to shy away from white polishes but still wanted to give this one a try.
