June 28, 2013see my swatch here), which is a shimmery cranberry color. I couldn’t think of one, but I asked some SOG addict friends and got some suggestions… many said IBD Indian Sari is close. Well, I was curious so I purchased it as well as Road to Paris since it also seemed to possibly fit the bill.
Indian Sari is gorgeous and has a really nice shimmer, but it’s definitely more purple than I anticipated. Below are some pictures of Indian Sari taken in my lightbox. The lighbox tends to make polishes look a little more matte than they actually are, so I also took a shot under the OttLite to show off the shimmer and gloss a little better.
Road to Paris is also a shimmery purple, but it’s more sheer and more on the pink side. Actually after looking at Indian Sari this looks very pink, but if I put it next to my pinks, it looks purple… so I guess it’s a hybrid! It also has a gorgeous shine, but I forgot to get a picture under the OttLite. This is also not the cranberry color I was looking for though, so the hunt for cranberry continues!
I am really starting to like the IBD brand. All of the colors that I’ve tried so far have been beautiful, they applied and soaked off well, last as long as other brands, and they’re half the cost!
