Limited Edition! Imp Nail Polish - color-changing black/burgundy/purple with multichrome flakes
This is an ultra-limited-edition polish! Only 1 batch was made, and the recipe is lost!
Imp is a mood (thermal) nail polish that changes 3 different colors depending on temperature. This will usually be a gradual, ombre type color shift, and you may not see 3 colors on the nail at once if you have shorter nails - but try washing your hands in cold or hot water, etc, to see the changes happen dramatically!
The "resting" color is a plummy purple; get your nails a bit cooler, and it shifts to a soft burgundy or maroon shade. Get it down to room temperature, or cold, and it will be grey or black.
In addition to the color shift, this polish is full of a rainbow of metallic flakes and iridescent flakes!
Inspiration: Tyrion Lannister, The Imp, from Game of Thrones & A Song of Ice & Fire by George R.R. Martin. This color palette was chosen based on his clothing on the show throughout the first 5 seasons
About Thermal (Mood) Nail Polishes
- The color-changing properties have a limited lifespan that averages 6 months to 2 years.
- When the effect expires, your polish will still be beautiful, but will stick in the color of either the cold or warm state. We recommend you only order thermal colors if you like both color states!
- The best way to ensure the long life of the color-change effect is to store your polish in a cool dark place - never in a car, in a window, near a heating duct, etc.
- Be aware if your parcel travels through a very cold or very hot region on its way to your home, that may affect how long the color-change effect works.
- Fanchromatic Nails cannot warranty how long your thermal polish's effects will last. However, please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any issues - your satisfaction is our #1 priority!
