Indigo Bananas-Cake Or Death!

Indigo Bananas made a scene in the indie polish community when she debuted her shop with show stopping duochromes and an in-your-face matte electric blue.  
She has since come out with some linear holos that I was very curious about.  
Tonight, I have for you a holo from her new collection called, "Cake Or Death."  I was curious if she would live up to the high standards I had come to expect from her last polishes. Considering how many indie brands have now come out with holo polishes, I was unsure how these would stand out.  
All doubts were swiftly put aside when I put on Cake Or Death.  Cake or Death is a rose colored linear holo with very small black glitter in it.   YES. Glitter in a holo.  I have so much to say about this polish, I am unsure of where to begin...
First of all, application was FLAWLESS.  I do not use that word lightly. I rarely use it actually. Consistency was perfect.  There was no drag, no issues, nothing but putting on the polish and DONE. 
I used two coats and a coat of Seche over the top.  As you can see by the photos, the linear is so strong, it rivals most Brazilian holos. Forget about comparing to indies. This blows them out of the water.
It dried quickly and top coat didn't mess with it. It lasted on my fingers for two days before I took it off. The holo in it is outstanding!   Personally, I could do without the glitter in it, but I understand why it is there.
It gives an added visual interest in the shade...  Notice you can see the glitter better here.  The glitter is so unobtrusive that you don't even notice it in the polish when you are putting it on.
Here is a photo in my light box.  The holo is less obvious, but still there.
Macro shot...
I am floored by Indigo Bananas amazing polishes!  She really goes above and beyond what is expected in a polish.  I wholeheartedly recommend buying from her!

Full sized holos retail for $12 each and minis for $5.50.
Other polishes are $10/$4.50.
