I wanted to play around with my polish by doing some nail art so I decided to create this “Unicorns in space” themed manicure. I used polishes from Holo Taco and nail vinyls from Twinkled T to make this design.
I started off by applying 2 coats of Midnight Spark and applied a thick coat of quick dry top coat to all of my nails. Once the topcoat was completely dry I added some fun unicorn stencils to my ring finger and thumb. For my ring finger, I used a stencil of a unicorn head. The one on my thumb shows the whole unicorn. I also added a vinyl with a bunch of star cutouts to my middle finger to make it more obvious that these unicorns are in space. I then used a wedge-shaped disposable makeup sponge to apply 3 thin layers of Rainbow Snow to create the unicorn and star designs. I recommend doing this one finger at a time as you need to peel off the vinyls while the polish is still wet in order to avoid ruining the design. I finished off this look by adding another 1-2 coats of glossy topcoat to each nail to seal in the design, smooth the surface of the nail, and add shine so that holo can really pop!
I used a peel-off base coat as removal of this glitter polish can be extremely difficult and I was only planning on wearing this manicure for a couple of days. For longer-term wear I would recommend soaking it off with 100% acetone.
This was a really fun manicure to apply and to wear. I love how the blue and silver holo pops off the nail and that it is full of rainbow sparkly goodness in the sunlight.
