Picture Polish- Unicorn [Swatch]




Today, I've got Picture Polish- Unicorn to show you! This polish is from the recent 2014 release of blogger collaboration shades, and this one was created with Allie of Brit Nails.

Unicorn is a creamy turquoise (almost sea foam, really) base filled with pink shimmer as well as tiny pink hex glitter, and slightly bigger silver hexes.  This dries matte and to a slightly rough finish (but not bumpy), so top coat is recommended, and that's what I've shown in the swatches.

Artificial light, two coats:



This photographs as more of a green-leaning baby blue than a turquoise, so these photos have been color-corrected in post. I think they look fairly accurate to the real deal.

Window-filtered daylight:


Outside, shade:



This is so lovely in person! I wore it for about five days, I think (which is nuts for me- NUTS). It wore really nicely in that time; I just had minimal tipwear. I also think the name is so fitting: a seafoam with pink sparkles? Come on!

Sun:


Formula: It's packed with glitter and shimmer, but paints on nicely and evenly. It almost has a fluffy feeling? The base doesn't feel dense, and distributes the glitters onto the nail surface well. I used two medium thickness coats, and thought that was very opaque!

Like I mentioned before, top coat is pretty necessary with this one to smooth it out and really bring out the glitter and shimmer. I used one coat of Gelous and one coat of INM- Out The Door.





What do you guys think of Unicorn?

Did any of the other collab shades catch your eye?

  1. That is entirely too pretty. And I think you need to get Serum No. 5's unicorn decals to wear with this, haha! :)

  5. I love the color combination on this polish, the pink stands out so much from the seafoam base :) I think my favorite shade from this new line of collaboraton shades is Fool's Gold :)

    And thank you for stopping by my blog, I love reading your comments :)
