Sinful Colors Unicorn (Challenge Day 29: A Polish You Don't Think You Can Pull Off)

Ugh, I hate this.  Hate, hate, hate.


I really tried to get on the yellow band wagon that rode through town this summer.  I really really did.  I dislike yellow on a good day, so finding the right shade was a bit of an ordeal.  This banana pastel color from Sinful Colors was the closest I was gonna get to something that was even slightly palatable.


I wish I could pull this off -- let alone like this -- but I just can't.  It doesn't match with anything I wear, makes me look jaundiced, and even after two or three coats (can't remember how many), still has bald spots.  Not to mention, no one liked this on me.  I can't say I blame them.






Ugh again.  This is terrible, isn't it?

  1. I swatched this a few days ago. I didn't like it either. I actually wanted a nice soft yellow, but this isn't what I was hoping it was. For some reason it seemed more muted in the bottle. I would probably like it better matted.

  3. @ TopCoat, I never thought of this as a matte. Shoot me a message if you decided to post that swatch, I'd be so interested to see how that goes.

    @ Sarah, it may look better on you than on me! If nothing else, it's an interesting pedi color for the summer (attempting silver lining here). Or it can be a $2 paper weight...?

  5. I do like that one, but I got really into muted colors this summer. I've only worn it on my toes so far.

  6. Yellows are so tricky! The only one I really LOVE is China Glaze Lemon Fizz. Like you said, I worry the wrong yellow will make me look jaundiced haha. I thought about buying Unicorn a few times but maybe I should just stay away.

  7. I love yellows :-) Maybe try a white or nude basecoat to help with bald spots?

  8. I think it's hilarious how polarized people are about yellow. I still maintain it's not a good color for polish but then again I thought that about green and now I love that shade for my nails :)

  9. Lemon Fizz is right on. I think some of the trick to yellow polish is finding a good one that doesn't take a gazillion coats only to still look crappy. I also have one of the Sephora minis in a taxi cab yellow color and I love the way it looks. I was never a fan of yellows, my boyfriend actually turned me on to yellow polish and now I love it and how it looks on my nails.
