I feel like unicorn has become the most abused mythical creature ever. In the past year the craze over unicorns escalated. I see unicorn cakes, slippers, makeup brushes, highlighters, hair colors and many more. If there's one thing I like about it, is the pastel rainbow colors. That's why I decided to create a manicure inspired by those colors, which are by the way perfect for spring season.
I started by applying white nail polish on all my nails except ring finger. On ring finger I applied a silver holographic shade with small shimmers.
After that I chose a variety of pastel shades that I could find in my stash and applied them on white base with a sponge. I used pastel lavender, blue, mint, peach, pink and yellow. This created perfect pastel rainbow colors to give the nails that magical unicorn land feel.
Because holographic nail polish didn't stand out enough, I decided to apply some multi-colored glitter over it. It has silver base, but reflects multiple colors. I must have got it as a craft glue once, but I can't remember where it is from. It gave me that perfect stand out accent nail.
Because you can't have enough of the magic when it comes to unicorns, I took top coat with small multi-colored silver shimmer and applied it all over the pastel colored nails. It gives a bit of that extra touch.
Did you think I was finished here? Nope. I decided to take some old nail stickers and applied them on. It was mostly blue, purple and pink flowers and dotted pastel pink and purple hearts. It can't get any sweeter than this.
I finished with a fast drying and high shine top coat to make it sparkle and last longer.
It's kind of girly, springy and somewhat cute. I personally loved how it turned out. Accent nail looks amazing in the sun light and I am all about pastel colors. How about you? Did you get tired of unicorns yet or are you all for it?
