NOTD Golden Unicorn In Ivory Skies

November 16, 2012

Today's mani is inspired by the amazing Lime Crime bottle and the lovely color I got from Jenna Froggy in my mystery nail polish bag. I've been in love with these pretty bottles with the gorgeous unicorn logo from the first moment I saw them around the blogosphere, and I never thought I will actually own one, so I was super excited when I got this beauty.
Inside this pretty bottle you can see this delicate ivory color, which described on their site as "cream off-white french tip nail polish". I really love this color, it's not like anything I have in my collection and it's so soft and unique.
I instantly knew that my design is going to include an unicorn stamp from my Nailz Craze plate, and it didn't took me long to come up with this idea of the golden unicorn in ivory skies.

I started with two coats of Lime Crime Milky Way, that applied two coats of Nubar 2010 which is a lovely flakie with clear base and color changing flakes. Then I stamped with Barry M Gold Foil using the Nailz Craze NC02 plate - I used the swirly clouds and the unicorn stamp. I sealed it off with my favorite quick dry top coat - Poshe.

It was really hard to catch the beauty of this design and mainly the glass flakes that are so beautiful in the sunlight and in the shade, especially when the sun didn't come out when I needed it (I actually took photos of this mani 3 times in two days, in different times of the day) but I think you can still see in this photos how lovely it came out. 
I think that my favorite photo has to be the one before last, where it looks like the unicorns' mane if on fire which is quite pretty and magical.
What do you think about this mani? What kind of design would you do with this unique color?

  4. I just thought I should point out that Lime Crime has some pretty shady business practices including using other business' copyright images for their own promotional material without permission. http://doedeerelies.tumblr.com is a reasonably even-handed website that details some of Lime Crime's questionable business decisions.
