I was super stoked to learn that Impala, a really popular Brazilian nail polish brand, was expanding to the US. I’m always excited to try new polish brands so I went straight to their website and started browsing. The website is pretty basic and not entirely user friendly (at least the English version…) but I did find a couple polishes I just had to try. All of the polishes are priced between $4.99 and $5.99 and are .25 FL Oz.
When Na Mira 3D arrived in my mailbox I was super excited! It looked gorgeous in the (very uniquely shaped) bottle. Another unique thing I noticed about the bottle was the label was only on the top and it includes (what I think is) an expiration date (09/2015).
Na Mira 3D (or…according to my Spanish speaking brother “In Look”) is a charcoal base packed with small square holographic glitter. The glitter in this polish is larger than say OPI My Private Jet or petites COLOR FEVER Black Diamond which makes the holographic glitter really stand out.
The formula is a bit on the thin side but not difficult to work with. I used three coats in my swatches. In the future I’ll definitely be layering this over a black or other dark polish.
So far I’m definitely a fan of Impala (and can understand why it’s so popular elsewhere in the world). Can’t wait to try Agua Fresca!
Below the jump there are a slew of additional swatches plus a picture of how awesome this polish looks in the sun! Seriously, it’s a must see.
Rumor has it that some retail stores will soon start carrying the Impala polish line but I’ve not yet been able to find any information indicating what stores or when this will happen. As of right now the only place to purchase Impala polish is their website.
I’d love to know if there are any Impala polishes you’d like to try and what you think about Na Mira 3D 🙂
