Pretty Derby Trio from PI Colors

PI Colors has created a super sweet little trio of polishes, all inspired by the school outfits of some of the horse girls from the anime Uma Musume Pretty Derby! I'm not personally familiar with the show, so I made sure to take a peek at the inspirations, and I think these do a fantastic job capturing the look of each of the girls. Plus, as an overall trio, these polishes work so well together!

This trio is set to release Friday, January 29th, at www.picolors.com.

"Mejiro McQueen.000"

Price: $11.00

Description: This polish is a punchy lilac purple, filled with chunky multi shape shimmering and sparkling blue and purple glitters. Shown in 3 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Let's start off with what may just be my favorite of the trio! I love the glitter mix used and how the blue glitters stand out so beautifully against the lilac base. This formula is slightly thin, but I loved how smoothly it applied. Coverage builds with each coat, easily reaching full opacity in 3 coats. Love this one matte as well.

"Silence Suzuka.000"

Price: $11.00

Description: This polish is a deep blue-purple and features iridescent shimmers and flakies. Shown in 3 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a beautiful “dark horse” of a polish, filled with shifting shimmers and flakes. I found the formula to sit a bit on the thicker side, but it applied just fine. Each coat is somewhat sheer, but they build beautifully to full opacity. This, too, looks fantastic with a matte top coat.

"Special Week.000"

Price: $11.00

Description: This polish is a sheer pale pink, filled with iridescent rainbow flakies and chunky glitters. Shown in 3 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: The muted pink base along with the iridescent flakes and glitters make this such a delicate, feminine polish. The large hex glitters glow beautifully and didn’t require any fishing. Again, this one also looks great when matte. I found this formula to be somewhat thick, making thinner coats a little hard to apply. However, after I sent my notes to wonderful maker Trish, she let me know that she would thin the formula out a bit to make application of thinner coats easier.

Again, this sweet little trio inspired the anime Uma Musume Pretty Derby is set to release Friday, January 29th, at www.picolors.com.
