All Hail The Queen is something of a light taupe with a glitter finish. Indoor lighting doesn't really do the shade much justice as it comes off mostly taupe with what looks like flecks of white or silver. From a distance in even poorer light such as from a lamp in the night time, it passes itself off as a plain neutral. But try looking at this shade in the sun and those sparkles just come to life.

I like this shade because the color appeals to the more conservative part of me and yet manages to be a little more exciting than a taupe nail polish. It's pretty low maintenance. It's easy to apply, with mild errors being unnoticeable. It's semi-sheer without being too transparent and the formula is as smooth as always. The wear time is really good.

NARS Night Rider comes to mind when I wear All Hail The Queen. Not that they're the same color but it's the way that the glitter comes into play. It's a rare event for me, to like glitter polishes, being very partial to creamy shades. Night Rider is a lilac/plum with silver glitter. But the way All Hail The Queen applies just reminds me of Night Rider. I'm happy to have both in my collection.
