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.

Vapid Lacquer – Look It’s Coral!


Hi everyone! It’s been awhile since I wore a straight creme/crelly for a full mani, so today I was wanting a nice bright creme and this Vapid did not disappoint!

I’m kind of new to Vapid Polish. This was my very first one I’ve worn! I made my first purchase late last year with most of them being bought during “The Purge” at the end of the year. That’s when I bought this one. There’s not much online about this color, so I’m not sure when it first came out but it doesn’t seem to be available anymore.

Girly Bits Cosmetics – I Licked It, So It’s Mine // February 2018 Polish Pickup


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from the Polish Pickup back in February 2018.  The theme that month was Sugar Rush.

Unfortunately, it’s no longer available as Polish Pickup has exclusive items, centered around a central theme, only available for four days each month. It’s open on the first Friday through Monday of each month and you can find it HERE.

I had to get this one when I saw it because it totally sounds like something I would have said when I was a little kid (I was a bit of a brat!). 🙂

Tutorial: Applying Glass Cabochons to Nail Polish Bottles


Hi everyone! In my last post I mentioned my newest nail polish project, adding glass cabochons to the top of my nail polish bottles. This is super easy, but I wanted to show you in pictures what to expect if you want to take this project on for yourself.

The reason I love this idea so much is when you open your drawer that holds your polish bottles, you can see at a glance which polish you are looking for. If you’re like me, you currently have to pick up multiple bottles looking for the one you want to use. This project will alleviate most of that searching.

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is going into my top polishes of 2018 folder! I am loving these new Multichrome Magnetic polishes that Tonic Polish just put out. I got them all and Flawless is the first one I am trying. I took almost 200 (!) photos of this manicure because each time you turn your hand you see something new. I was trying so hard to cut photos but I still have A LOT of them today! You can find Tonic Polish HERE or at TonicPolish.com. I am not affiliated, just a big fan!

Hi everyone! Today I have the next 6 polishes from the upcoming OPI summer collection! This collection corresponds with the 40th anniversary of Grease the movie! As I said in Part 1, I may or may not be old enough to have seen this when it originally came out in theaters (I’ll never tell!) but I do still own the vinyl record!

Be warned that if you’re familiar with the songs from Grease, some of these names will cause you to be humming the songs all day!

I bought this collection from PolishPick.com.  They have all the recent OPI collections (plus many other brands too!) for great prices and reasonable (and quick) shipping!

OPI Grease Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review Part 1


Hi everyone! Today I have the first 6 polishes from the new/upcoming OPI Grease Collection to share with you! This is the 40th Anniversary of Grease the movie! I may or may not be old enough to have seen this in a theater when it first came out (I’ll never tell!) but I do still have the original vinyl album!

Grease is one of a handful of movies I would watch over and over. It’s been a long time now since I’ve seen it. I was really looking forward to this collection when I heard it was coming!

As I was painting my nails with some of these I got an ear worm of the song the polish related to, so that was a fun remembrance!

I bought this collection from Polishpick.com.  They have good prices and reasonable (and quick!) shipping! Check them out HERE.

Check out the other 6 polishes in the Grease Collection Part 2 HERE!
