I have a number of polishes that I consider “must-haves”. Polishes that flesh out my collection and fill essential spots in color, formula or effect. Over the next couple of months I plan to post reviews and swatches of them because I really feel these polishes are beyond worth it! The first in this series is called Pigment of my Imagination by indie polish brand KBShimmer.
Pigment of my Imagination is a gorgeous multi-chrome polish that goes through such a rainbow of colors that you find yourself mesmerized by your own nails as you shift them here or there or adjust them to find yet another hidden color. In normal indoors light, they appear to be a electric blue/indigo. That color by itself would be stunning, but it doesn’t stop there! At just the right angle, the color slips into a reddish-gold that is breathtaking! Although I had trouble catching the red and gold in my pictures, take a look at the bottle in the pictures and you can see it!
When I was first eyeing this polish, a few reviews on Amazon complained about the formula being extremely thin. Don’t let that be a deterrent! It is thin, but it is smooth and not runny at all. It glides on like a dream and builds up beautifully to be opaque in 3 coats. There is a hidden bonus in the thin consistency of this polish: it layers like a dream. Don’t want to mess with 3 coats? Try putting it on top of a dark, opaque polish and watch it come to life with ease. I’ve layered this over black polish as well as dark purple and the effect is just gorgeous.
If you are in the market for a gorgeous multi-chrome polish that is perfect for fall and winter, don’t pass this one up! It is available on the KBShimmer.com website or Amazon.com and retails for $8.75. This is very high on my list of favorite polishes of all time – if you own this or get it, please share with me what you think of it!
