Indigo Bananas: Klein Trink Wasser ♥

I have a polish from a new-to-me indie brand to show you today! You may have seen the brand Indigo Bananas popping up on blogs recently - she seems to be hitting the scene with a bang, and I can completely understand why! I have 3 of her polishes to show you in the next few days and the first one is amazing!

Indigo Bananas - Hermes, Klein Trink Wasser, Low-key

Today I have Klein Trink Wasser to show you. Klein (as shortened by the maker) is an extremely vibrant, in-your-face blue and I love it! The formula was very easy to work with. I used 3 coats (as the maker states you will need) and it dries to a satin finish (think Illamasqua's rubber finish) that I quite enjoyed. Add top coat and it deepens the color even more. I really love this one and it is more vibrant than Nails Inc. Baker Street (I have a comparison photo at the end of this post).

This is what the maker had to say about Klein - 

Base color: blue, indigo in certain lights (klein blue)
Effects: ---
Finish: creme
Roughness: smooth
# coats: three solo
Top Coat: optional, but recommended
Size: 15ml 
Vegan & cruelty free: yes
3-Free (formaldehyde, toluene, DBP free): yes

First up, 3 coats with NO top coat...

What do you think of this one? I love it and I love the fact that I can wear it satin or shiny! Definitely one of my favorite blues out of my whole collection.

Indigo Bananas can be found on their website here. Also, make sure to "like" their Facebook page to stay up-to-date on news and announcements! Full-sized bottles retail for $10 and minis for $4.50 and can be purchased at their Etsy shop here

Thanks for reading and happy polishing! ♥
