I can't believe it's been over a week since I last blogged, however it feels like a lot longer. Due to the recent cold snap, I seem to have reverted back to my winter behaviour of snuggling up in bed for long naps and drinking copious amounts of tea. This has made blogging a little tricky.
However I'm back with a bang today and have a gorgeous duo from Nails Inc for you.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you can't have missed how 'Unicorn' crazy the internet/social sphere has become. Not only do we have unicorn merchandise for everything, we also recently saw Starbucks create the Unicorn Frap and Nails Inc create the unicorn nail duo. Both of which have become instant hits.
I was lucky enough to receive a rather large box containing the most amazing and crazily large unicorn balloon, a yummy cookie and of course the Unicorn Duo polishes.
A gorgeous iridescent, pearly duochrome that shifts from a bright blue to a purple/pink. As these kind of polishes are quite sheer I applied 2 coats over a pale purple creme base and voila - instant unicorn nails!!
This polish is very unique for me and I was even more excited about it than Rainbow Wishes when I saw it. It has a raspberry mauve jelly base and is full of a stunning flakie type gold shimmer that sparkles like crazy when the lights hit it. I used 2 coats for the swatch.
As a duochrome lover and a massive fan of interesting polishes, I adore this duo. Even if it wasn't themed around Unicorns, I would have been all over it. Although this is sold out online (it really didn't hang around long), I believe you can still pick it up in selected retailers for £15. A complete bargain for 2 beautiful Nails Inc polishes. If you do want to pick this up still, I suggest you stay tuned to the @nailsinc instagram and twitter pages.
What are your thoughts on the current unicorn craze? Do you like these polishes?
