Indigo Illumination Gel Polish #5 – Duochrome

I just purchased five duochrome gel polishes from the Indigo Illumination line. OMG! These things are freaking fantastic – the duochrome effects are to die for. They’re so hard to capture in pictures, so I had to take a short video to show you how the colors change based on the lighting. I just moved my light back and forth above my hand and you can see how dramatic the color change is.

This is #5 (Saturn), and it shifts from teal blue to a deep purple. This gel polish is NOT the soak off variety… it has to be filed off if you apply it by itself. If you use this polish I highly recommend wearing undies under it (use a soak off polish underneath). I applied Saturn over top of two coats of Gelish My Favorite Accessory.

These were purchased directly from Indigo as part of a large group order.  Shipping to the states is rather high, so it’s helpful if you have other people to go in on an order with you.

Update:  These polishes do not cure with some LED lamps, UV is the way to go. - Indigo Illumination Gel Polish #5 Saturn - Duochrome - Indigo Illumination Gel Polish #5 Saturn - Duochrome - Indigo Illumination Gel Polish #5 Saturn - Duochrome

    This is so beautiful! I hate that it has to be filed off though. :( Is there anything similar that can be soaked off?

      I ended up selling them before I even tried them because removal was too much of a pain.

      • Edith says:

        Really? :s even with gelish underneath it?
        Well thanks for the advice, cause i was thinking in buying them

          It was easier with a soak-off base underneath, but still harder to remove than normal. If you don’t use a soak-off base this stuff has to be completely filed off. They are gorgeous polishes and worth it if you plan to wear them for a length of time. I just change my polish far too often to put up with the extra hassle. :)

    Hi there,
    Thanks for your amazing blog!
    You said some led lights won’t cure these, do you know which?
    I have a gelish 18g lamp (after reading your review!). Do you think this would work?
    Ali :)

    • Andrea says:

      I’m not sure – I don’t own these any more and didn’t test other lamps. I don’t think I owned my 18G yet when I wrote this :)

    How much did these each polishes come out to in USD?

    • Andrea says:

      I don’t remember, it’s been a long time. We did get a discount because we did a large group purchase, but I think they were still a little pricey.
