Before the pictures I must start with an apology. I apologize for the fact that my hands look like crazy neon jaundice oranges in this post. Usually I don't have to do any color correction for my photos but The Swatchaholic is correct in her post saying this beautiful polish is a pain to photograph. In all the pictures I took (and there were a lot) Imperial photographed more blue than it was. It really is just purple. So I color-corrected the polish and just accepted that it made my hands look like this. So hopefully you can ignore the skin color because I think I did a pretty good job at getting the color of the polish accurate here.
Other than being camera shy, Imperial was a divine polish to work with. This is two coats plus top coat. I didn't really pick up the holo particles like I can in some Picture Polish shades. I think Imperial is so pigmented that it masks some of its more subtle aspects a little.
What do you think of how it turned out? It reminded me of Aladdin or something and I am a-okay with that. Aladdin was one of my favorite Disney movies growing up :-)
'Til next time...
