Revlon — Unicornicopia (Nail Enamel) Swatch & Review

Brand: Revlon 2017 Fall, HoloChrome

Everyone is getting in on the unicorn action, these days, and Revlon are the newest ones to release unicorn-themed cosmetics in the form of nail polish! Aww yeah.

I bought two of them at what I thought was full price, which really goes to show how cute these are, ’cause I generally despise buying stuff at full price. Revlon Nail Enamels are usually about C$9 at Rexall (I know, what?!) but I did have a $5 coupon, so I bought two holographic shades from the new HoloChrome collection.

It turns out that they must have been on sale, even as products from a new display, and they rang up at $6.79 instead. Woohoo! Fairy Dust and Unicornicopia were mine at, after the coupon, under $5 a pop!

Also, the next day, I stopped by a Shoppers Drug Mart location that I don’t often visit and saw the same display. The makeup gods must have known that I’m on a shopping spree this month, because Revlon polishes were on sale for $5.99. I picked up two more—Galactic Pink and Hologasm—and I think that’ll be it for me from this collection, as the rest are chromes, not my favorite finish.

I really want to mention that it should properly be spelled Unicornucopia,
since the word is cornucopia. But I suppose it does looks a little funny that way.

The HoloChromes collection polishes all come with a silvery holographic sticker around the cap.

Now, my favorite holos of all time are Color Club’s Halo Hues, which are simply magnificent. Like, I’d probably end up walking into traffic because I can’t stop looking at my nails with them on.

These Revlon holos give a very different look. They’re much subtler, with very fine holo shimmer.

In my swatch pics, it’s hard to see the holo shimmer. But in sunlight/halogen lights, it definitely provides a multi-colored holo effect. It’s not going to blind you with holo, so it’s a nice option for a quieter, less distracting look.

The color itself is a soft, greyed lavender, and very wearable. The formula was smooth and applied well, though it was a little on the sheerer side so I did prefer three coats for my swatch.

These limited edition holos are surely worth picking up if you like a holo and don’t want to pony up (get it?) for something pricier. If you want a blinding holo, however, skip these.
