Isn’t that a fantastic title for a post? No? Oh well, that is about as far as my creativity could go with the names of the polishes I am using today. I just like the fact that I have ‘Unicorn’ in the title of my post 😉
I seem to have quite a few draft posts sitting around so I figured it might be time to get them out there. One of the reasons why this post is still lying in the drafts folder is because I just can not get the name of one of the polishes. It is driving me nuts so I am hoping if I post it here one of you might be able to help me 🙂
The first polish I am using today is Sinful Colors – Vacation Time
Vacation Time is a nude / sandy beige creme. This is two coats over basecoat but without topcoat. I actually really liked this polish as far as nudes go. I thought it looked very elegant and was such a breeze to apply.
The next polish is Sinful Colors – Unicorn
Ahhhh Unicorn. This polish has had a really bad rap and when I looked into it for the first time I just read tons and tons of bad reviews. I was really scared about using it. It is a soft, pale yellow creme. I have here two coats over basecoat but no topcoat. I have to be honest. I had absolutely NO staining when I wore this. I don’t know if it is because I was wearing basecoat or because I only wore it for about a day. Maybe I just had a really good bottle. Whatever the reason I can not complain one single bit about this polish. For a yellow, it was actually quite dreamy.
And now, the problem child.
This is a Sinful Colors I picked up from Ackermans. I have mentioned before that some Ackermans stores sell Sinful Colors as well but that for some reason they take the name off and replace it with a price tag. Usually it isn’t a problem because with a little bit of time I can usually find it via google. Lately, a few have been giving me hassles. The closest I could get is that this might just be Sinful Colors – Cool Gray. If this is not right and you might know what it actually is please let me know. This is a very light, off white, grey colour that might even have the slightest hint of a pale blue in certain light. This is two coats over basecoat and no topcoat and as you can see completely opaque. This was dreamy as far as coverage and application goes. I really love this polish!
Now I bet you asked how I could combine these three shades? With my love of polka dots of course!!
Here is just a base of Sinful Colors – Cool Gray (I assume) with polka dots in different sizes of Vacation Time and Unicorn. I really like that this is just different and not a normal colour combination. Of course polka dots! Love polka dots!
Do any of these polishes stand out for you? Do you know if that is Cool Gray or do you know if it is something different? I would love to hear from you!
Thanks for reading!
Those colours work so well together! I like it xx

Cool Gray is my fave of them all too. It blew my mind that something so light had such great application. I expected sheer and patchy polish but it was just gorgeous! Thank you muchly!
I would’ve never thought these colours would go together but this looks awesome! Seriously! And c’mon! Like I’m not going to like anything with the word unicorn in it!!! ;D
UNICORN!! LOL. I knew you would appreciate it! 😛 Thanks hun!
As always, such beautiful work by you!

Thanks Imka, I actually really like the grey one too. So much that I am using it again today 😉
That is the first yellow polish that I can actually see myself wearing. Any tips on making perfect round circles with a dotting tool?
It is a really pretty yellow. Like I mentioned there are loads of complaints about it out there but I had no issues at all.
Hmmm perfect round circles with a dotting tool. I would say applying even pressure. Having the same amount of polish on with every dot. I actually practiced on a piece of paper at first to see the difference with different pressure and different amount of polish. Once you have tried different ways you will know which one you prefer. Although, as is obvious, I still can’t make perfect round polka dots 😉
Oh, and of course, fun post name. :p
LOL thank you!! Unicorns FTW right? hahaha Thanks so much for reading!
