IndieGirl Two-Touch Gel Polish
While walking the trade show floor at Cosmoprof NA this summer, I came across the IndieGirl booth. I’d heard of their gel polish line, but never tried it so I was intrigued! They were very friendly and helpful in educating me about their brand and provided me with a few samples to try. I finally had a chance to use them and I swatched a few colors to share with you today.
First a little info before we get to the swatches… IndieGirl is a professional brand that’s only available for sale to licensed professionals through their website (sorry DIY friends!). Their Two-Touch line is a two-step LED/UV gel polish with the base coat being optional, which is meant to save time during a manicure service. They told me that the optional base coat is a smoothing gel that helps with hiding nail imperfections, though I find all gel polishes to hide ridges and imperfections since they are all self-leveling.
I wore one of the Two-Touch colors with the optional base coat for a while, though I didn’t conduct an official wear test. I found the polish to apply with ease and wear really well. The top coat was super shiny and held up to my daily acetone usage in the salon with just a little tip wear after a full week. The soak-off was also decent and removal took about 10-12 minutes with acetone and my NailMates.
Let’s take a quick peek at a few of the colors that I swatched!
Stardust really caught my eye and I couldn’t wait to try it. It’s a dark blue-leaning purple with a microglitter shimmer finish. It’s really stunning in person and was my favorite of the samples I received. This is an awesome color for the season and the upcoming holidays. This color offers full coverage in just two coats.
Anastasia is a purple-leaning pink cream. My camera made this color look a little pixelated, but I assure you that in person it’s smooth as silk. This is a nice year-round color, and is also a two-coater.
Royal Blue has medium blue glitter in a clear base and offers full coverage in 2-3 coats. This swatch shows three coats, but the coverage was pretty decent with two coats. You could also apply one coat of this glitter over another color for a nice effect.
