We're in the middle of a crazy blizzard here and although there's been rolling blackouts for the last 24 hours plus, I've been fortunate enough to not have lost mine yet! So there's really no better time to swatch new and pretty polishes!
Recently I placed a small order with Nail Polish Canada for a couple of piCture polish Collaboration shades that I'd been wanting. Imperial by Jeanette from The Swatchaholic was one of the ones I picked up.
Imperial is a vibrant neon people base packed with heavy blue shimmery flakes and small coppery gold hexagonal glitters. Pictures can't do this one justice because it's even more vibrant and beautiful in person. Definitely a must-own in my opinion.
The formula was pretty great; it was nice and creamy and two coats provided perfect coverage. It does dry down semi-matte due to the neon pigment, so be sure to add top coat if you want a shiny finish.
If you'd like to know more about the inspiration behind Imperial and see some of Jeanette's beautiful photos, check out her post here.
Imperial is easily one of my favourite piCture polish Collaborations ever. In fact I'm glad that I tried it before finishing my editor's choice post featuring my Best of 2013 picks because this will definitely be making the list.
piCture polish is available now from the piCture pOlish website as well as from other global network members such as Harlow & Co. and Nail Polish Canada.
