Indigo Bananas Fall 2015 Holographic Collection (Partial): Swatches and Review

Provided for Review 
Hi all! I have some polishes from Indigo Bananas to share with you today. These five are a part of her Fall 2015 Collection. There are two other polishes in this collection, Indigo Montoya (a indigo blue holo) and Rhythm & Booze ( a purple holo), Tracie of Newsie Nail Novice has a review of the collection including those two that I did not receive.

There is not a specific theme to this collection, though a few of them have Doctor Who and The Princess Bride name references. The colors though, they are very fall appropriate with deep jewel tones. The polishes all have a jelly holographic formula. I found that I needed to apply three coats for complete coverage, you could get away with just two coats but you may have some patchiness and the color is darker with that third coat.

Indigo Bananas notes in her shop that a few of these, like Volcanic Corruption will darken with topcoat. All my photos below are shown with topcoat, which is how my standard when I swatch polishes. Some staining may be possible, considering these are all darker colors, so just remember to apply your trusty base coat!

The Fall 2015 Collection from Indigo Bananas is available now in her shop. You can purchase the collection as a whole or individually in both mini or full size.  

Indigo Bananas Olive Time and Space
Three coats
Olive green linear holographic
This makes me think of pine trees and their spruce scent. A dark forest green that's just shy of being black.

Indigo Bananas Polish of Unusual Quality (P.O.U.Q.)
Two coats
Magenta linear holographic
I have a feeling this will be a popular shade, it's very eye-catching. The only one I applied two coats instead of three and you can see that it likely needed that third coat for a reason.

Indigo Bananas Shrieking Teals
Three coats
Teal green linear holographic
I love that Princess Bride reference, it's add just a little to an already gorgeous polish.

Indigo Bananas Synonym Bun
Three coats
Reddened brown linear holographic
I was surprised by how much I loved this one. It's has such a rich color, I see myself wearing this frequently in the fall.

Indigo Bananas Volcanic Corruption
Three coats
Fiery red linear holographic
OH MY, THIS RED THOUGH...glowing from within fits this to a T. It has a less prominent holo flame than the other four but it's much more obvious in person.
