Dawn Chorus - red/pink/gold/green mega chrome flakie

$ 7.25

Dawn Chorus is a red/pink/gold/green mega chrome flakie (a special type of thin multichrome flake).  Mega chrome flakies are larger, shinier and shift to more colors than normal chrome flakies. The base of this polish is clear and it is meant as a one coat effect top coat (pictured is one coat over white). 

This polish is intended as an effect top coat, but will reach opacity in four thin coats, or three thick coats; shown swatches are one coat over white or black.

Dawn Chorus is #3 in the full Mega Chrome flakie lineup (click)

Indigo Bananas brand polishes are handmade from suspension base, thinner & related solvents, pure pigments, effect micas & flakes, and glitter. Polishes are made in batches, with weighed colorants and measured liquids, and batches are compared to previous testers. All finished polish colors have been tested for at least a month, with most having been under development for 3months+. Since this is a handmade product, there's a possibility that there will be slight batch variations, but I do my best to minimize them, both in appearance and performance.

Please shake before use, as the base used tends to 'gel' up, but should thin to a good consistency with a small amount of agitation. Please allow dry time between each coat of polish. Usage of a base coat & top coat is HIGHLY recommended to increase wear of all nail polish. I recommend using 3-Free top coats & base coat - and especially avoiding DBP (dibutyl phthalate, which disrupts hormone function), in all nail polish products.

The easiest way to remove glitter nail polish is to: soak a cotton pad in polish remover (or acetone), place it on your nail, wrap a piece of aluminum foil around your finger, wait 10 minutes, press and slide off the pad in one swipe (look up "glitter foil removal method" on youtube for some great videos). Please wipe cap off after use to prevent build up of polish. Polish can be thinned with nail polish thinner (ethyl/butyl acetate based, not acetone) if it is too thick or thickens up over time, with use.

Do not use near an open flame, while smoking, or while breathing fire or doing similar stunts sometimes seen done by street performers. Not to be used to put out cigarettes. Store in a cool, dark location. Use in a well ventilated area when applying nail polish, and do not use as an inhalant. For external use only.

Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl, Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Silica, N-Butyl Alcohol, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Violet 2. may contain: ultramarines, iron oxides, chromium oxides, lake dyes (batch certified), mica, glitter.


Items are shipped via USPS First Class shipping, unless you specify another method (i.e. flat rate Priority) or it is more economical to do so. A tracking number is provided for all orders (international tracking may not update correctly once it leaves the USPS system and enters your country's mail system). If you do not receive a tracking number after an order has shipped, please contact us.

For USPS First Class mail shipping:
Please allow up to 7 days for processing an order and dropping it off, occasionally a bit longer after sales or launches. Orders generally go out faster (in 1-4 days) but exceptions do happen, especially after launches or sales, as IB is a one woman team at the moment. Delivery time for first class packages within the US is 4-7 days, but sometimes longer delays can happen with first class packages. Tracking info for first class USPS packages is often NOT accurate nor is it updated at every step of the way, and unfortunately USPS does not guarantee full tracking on first class packages. If you require tracking, please consider choosing Priority mail upgrades. Packages weighing over 16oz go priority.

For USPS Priority mail shipping:
Please let us know if the order has a deadline or is urgent in any way. Otherwise orders go out in around in the same processing speed as other orders. However priority mail packages usually get processed quickly at our local post office (same day), and they fully update tracking info at each step of the way. Delivery time for priority mail within the US is 2-3 days.

For international orders:
These generally go First Class and processing time follows the domestic First Class guidelines above. Delivery time for first class international is very irregular - anywhere from five days to twenty days is normal. Tracking info for first class international is VERY inconsistent and often not scanned immediately but only scanned at customs or entering the delivery country and upon delivery. Priority mail is more consistent with both delivery times and tracking.

If you need a package sent out asap please contact us ahead of time or shortly after placing an order! If the order is a gift, let us know (in order comments). USPS First class shipping transit time takes between 2-5 days within the US and 6-14 days internationally once it enters the system - with possible customs delays. All packages have delivery confirmation but packages are not always immediately or consistently scanned on every part of their route. Please allow at least 10 days for US shipments and 25 days for international shipments before contacting us about missing packages.

Any changes or delays in shipping will be announced on the front page, on the Indigo Bananas Facebook page, and at the top of the Indigo Bananas Etsy shop.

We do not have standard gift wrapping options available at this time, but plan to have it as an addon in the store in the future.If you wish to have something gift wrapped, or if an order is a gift and you would like a receipt omitted please contact us as indigobananas@gmail.com.


We're sorry, but at this time we cannot offer refunds, only replacement - in the case of incorrect item shipped, damaged items, or lost packages. Please purchase accordingly!

As with anything, exceptions can be made, so for any other issues, please contact us at indigobananas@gmail.com and we will do our best to help you!
