Two months into this blogging game and I think it’s about time for a beauty post don’t you?
I’m starting with Nails inc’s Sparkle like a unicorn nail polish duo. When I first saw these on their Facebook page I knew I had to have them, I’m a BIG fan of anything “unicorn”. If its stationery that’s an added bonus, if I can WEAR it, even better!
I have a massive stash of Nail inc polishes and alas I procrastinated for too long and by the time I looked again that evening they were sold out, sold out EVERYWHERE. I was gutted. I don’t buy a lot of polishes as I tend to wear one colour all the time (Hampstead Grove if you’re interested). For these, however, I had been willing to make an exception.
I mean look at them! I had to wait a good month before they finally came back into stock, and when they did (on my birthday, fate or WHAT!) I didn’t waste any time, I got my order in STRAIGHT this time, I wasn’t missing out!
As soon as they arrived I was eager to try them out and experiment. On closer inspection, the colours were even more vivid than I had first thought.
The paler colour was very light. It took a good three coats to get an even coverage, but when you did it was a lovely effect as the colour change from blue to purple as they catch the light.
The second colour was still nice but I think I’ll keep it for my toes and as an “accent” nail colour, it was a little too “loud” for me to use all over for day to day wear. Interestingly this one was a “one coat wonder” so I can see I’ll be running out of one well before the other.
Overall I’m really happy with the set, I’ve worn it for a few weeks now and lots of people have commented on them and asked where they are from. It’s a new fav for me, grab yours now before they sell out, it’s still a limited edition!
What do you think of the colours? Have you tried them? I’d love the hear what you think.
