Comparison: “Unicorn Pee” Polishes // Max Factor Fantasy Fire (2011), Girly Bits Shift Happens (2012 & 2017), Ethereal Lacquer Worlds Apart (2018)


Hi everyone! Today I have a real quick comparison post of some Unicorn Pee toppers. Unicorn Pee is a hard to find pigment that shifts red to green to gold. The original pigment has been discontinued so it is getting harder to find.

Ethereal Lacquer just reopened her store in the last week or two after quite a few years and the first polish she brought back was Worlds Apart. I guess this was a fan favorite but I was not that familiar with Ethereal Lacquer back in the day so I don’t have an original bottle to compare for you, but I do have a lot of other Unicorn Pee toppers and polishes. The maker of Ethereal has said she used double the amount of original UP in this 2018 batch so the base color is quite a bit more sheer than it was. I just got my Worlds Apart in the mail today and wanted to share with you what it’s like.

Today I will show you a comparison with the original Max Factor Fantasy Fire from 2011, Girly Bits Shift Happens both the original from 2012 and the re-release from 2017, and the new release of Ethereal Lacquer Worlds Apart 2018. I have these both over a black base and a purple base.

At the bottom of the post, I also have a comparison of Tonic Curio, KBShimmer Let’s Slang, Ethereal Lacquer Worlds Apart, Tonic Serendipity, and KBShimmer So Jelly all on their own.

I have quite a few pictures today.

Max Factor – Fantasy Fire // Comparison of both versions


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure comes to us from “over the pond” in Max Factor Fantasy Fire. The original version came out in 2011 and only in the UK and other parts of the world, but never here in North America. Back in 2011 I found a great UK’er on MUA to do a swap with me, because as soon as I saw it, I had to have it! The original version used a magical color changing pigment that has lovingly became known as “Unicorn Pee” in the nail polish community because it is about as easy to find these days as a unicorn would be.

In the photo below, the new version is the bottle on the left and the original is the bottle on the right (look at that fill line. If I didn’t have a bunch of backups, I’d be getting worried!!). Then the new version is on my ring finger (right on the macro) and the original version is on my middle finger (left on the macro).
