Springy IBD Gel Polish Colors

I have 4 springy IBD gel polish colors to show you today. It’s ironic because the closer it gets to spring, the worse the weather has been where I live. Weirdo! Regardless of the snow and crazy weather, I am ready for spring colors. These 4 gel polish colors are perfect for that.

Springy IBD Gel Polish Colors

IBD Sundance

IBD Sundance is a pastel orangey peach. On me it is almost a nude, but not quite. This one is a little streaky, but it ended up looking nice by my last coat. I did 3 coats plus a thin 4th coat. It seems like most of these pastels need 4 coats. It’s a little bit of a bummer, but I would rather pay less per bottle and get more bottles, even if it means I have to do 4 coats.

IBD Polo Can U Go

Polo Can U Go is a pretty pastel lime green. I’ve never thought of lime green as a pastel, but that really is the best way to describe this color. It’s a nice cream and only took 3 coats for full coverage. It didn’t make my skin look as yellow as most greens so that nice for me. I think this one is perfect for spring and summer.

IBD Raindrops

Raindrops is a very cream that is in between a lavender and a periwinkle. It looks closer to blue in the bottle, but on me it looks way more purple. I don’t know if it’s my skin tone, but it was a lot more purple than I was expecting. Not that I’m complaining because I love purple. I did 4 thin coats for complete opacity. I love wearing this one in the spring, especially when it’s raining. 🙂

IBD Juliet

Juliet is a pale, pink cream. It’s a beautiful color, but it needs 4 coats for full coverage. It’s great for subtle color though. It’s definitely pink, but a very light pink. I think it’s a very work appropriate shade.

I did a bit of an experiment with this color. I tried using different “undies” with it to see if it improved the streakiness. In this last photo you can see that experiment. On my pointer finger I did one coat of Whipped Cream, then 2 coats of Juliet. On my middle finger I did 1 coat of Cashmere Blush, then 2 coats of Juliet. On my ring finger I tried something I saw on Pinterest and did 1 coat Juliet, 1 coat of Gelish Matte top coat, then 1 more coat of Juliet. On my pinky I did 3 coats of Juliet. I was trying to see if any of these “undies” made it possible to use 3 coats rather than 4. Unfortunately, I think all of them still look streaky. Another coat probably would have fixed the pointer and middle finger, but then I would still have to do 4 coats and it’s easier to just do 4 coats of Juliet. The matte top coat idea was a complete failure. I guess it only works with regular nail polish, not with gel polish. I just did the pinky so you could see how the fingers compare.

  1. I’m a periwinkle girl myself. But I LOVE that lime color! I’ve been looking for a green color for awhile now and this might be it…

    • The lime (Polo Can U Go) is definitely awesome, but so is the periwinkle! Too many colors, too little time. 😉

  2. Thank you for the swatches will you be trying any other brands ? I totally agree ( too many colors to little time ) .

    • I do plan to try other brands, but I still have quite a few IBD swatches to get through. Once I get through all of my colors, I plan to try as many brands as I can. Then my problem will be too many brands, too little time. 🙂 Haha!
