Indies & Undies ft. Sinister Benediction

Happy Reviews-Day Tuesday to one and all!  Today I have 2 polishes from the indie brand Sinister Benediction - a multichrome, and a color shifting topcoat.

The first polish is "Horse Feathers", which is "a multichrome peacock teal base color that shifts to blue and violet".

Although this is a "no undies necessary" polish, I wanted to try using a grey-ish blue base, to see if it would enhance the polish.  So let's see how it turned out!

"Horse Feathers" over Revlon's "Fashionista".
 



Next is "JPG", and I think the concept for this polish is pretty cool - I've actually never heard of anything like it.  Straight from their etsy page, JPG is a "red color shifting topcoat, made up of tiny pixel-like flakes which shift from red to gold to green".  Pretty neat, huh?

No swatch here, as it applies pretty clear sans-undies, so I decided to show this topcoat on top of 4 different colours: a dark red creme, a dark purple shimmer, a magenta shimmer, and a bright green creme.  Here is a before/after.

Before "JPG" topcoat - from left to right:  Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in "Red Zin',  Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in "Deep Purple", Revlon's "Oh My Magenta", and Pure Ice's "Wild Thing".

My favourite thing about Sinister Benediction, aside from the fun colours, is the mixing balls - I'm so used to having polishes with either no mixing ball, or a mixing ball that barely moves, but with Sinister Benediction, when you shake the bottle, you can hear the mixing ball sing!  This makes sure that the polish is well-mixed.

Be sure to check out Sinister Benediction on their etsy page - their polishes retail for $9-$12.
