It’s Friday the 13th!
Bit of trivia: I have never seen a Friday the 13th movie! (Well, unless you count the crossover movie Freddy vs. Jason.) I think this month, I should catch up on my classic slasher films. I haven’t watched any horror movies this October, at all!
Collection: Nails Inc. 2017 Spring, Sparkle Like a Unicorn
Anyway, today’s polish is as far as you can get from horrifying. It’s from Nails Inc.’s Sparkle Like a Unicorn Nail Polish Duo. Pretty much everyone has jumped onto that shiny unicorn bandwagon, these days! I can’t say I hate it: I love me some iridescent nail polish, and purple and rainbows and stuff. Also, it’s produced My Little Pony makeup collaborations (yes, I have a mini set of the China Glaze MLP polishes, and I have the ColourPop MLP palette on order), so you’ll hear no complaints from me.
Today’s polish, Rainbow Wishes, is described by Nails Inc. as a “soft rainbow sheen.”
It is a very shimmery pearl that flashes blue, lavender, and pink.
The brush has a nice, wide paddle shape, and it applies the polish very quickly and easily.
The formula is semi-sheer, but two to three coats gives pretty good coverage—the shimmer and iridescence make it fairly forgiving. I have two coats on in my swatch photos. The finish is a little frosty but the iridescence gives it extra oomph.
The evenness of the polish means you could certainly try it out as a topper, as well.
It’s such a fun and well-performing color that I whole-heartedly recommend it. It’s particularly suited to princess-y or unicorn-inspired Halloween outfits!
This full-sized (2 × 14 mL) duo keeps going in and out of stock at Sephora, which is where I got it. It’s also available directly from Nails Inc. (US/UK, not available in Canada.)
Nails Inc. Sparkle Like a Unicorn Nail Polish Duo contains 2 full-sized (14 mL) nail polishes and retails for US$15 / CA$16, which is a super deal as that is the normal cost for one regular polish. The formula is free from toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). The duo is made in Luxembourg.
Nails Inc. was launched by fashion editor Thea Green as a chain of nail bars in 1999. Founded in London, England, the company currently has 60 locations in the UK.
