Radioactive Unicorn #NOTD

Unicorn Nails
Hello everyone! Nail art pens at the ready, today's post is a #NOTD post. Leanne, AKA the most patient person ever let me try out the Radioactive Unicorn polish that I recently bought on her nails. 

Now, of course with a brand name like Radioactive unicorn I couldn't just paint them and be done with them so I decided to do a funky little design on them. The two different polishes that I chose were different in consistency so I definitely have a favourite and a... not so favourite? Well, anyway, LET ME ROT! is the name of the lighter shade most prominently featured and the darker shade is called She's An ICE COLD BITCH! so they have some interesting names.

LET ME ROT! is the better of the two in my opinion, and Leanne's, because the glitter is thinner and it dries quite smoothly. She's An ICE COLD BITCH! has thicker glitter and it just looked clumpy. I added a top coat to sort of smooth it over but it only partially succeeded so paining over that with the pens was fairly challenging.

I painted unicorns onto it to stick with the theme, also kind of because I'd never attempted to paint unicorns onto nails before. It was a bit of a task when it came to painting over the more clumpy of the two polishes but as you can see, I managed. 

The eyes look more like crosses but they were supposed to be like black dots with lashes, it's trial and error I guess because the pens are quite fiddly. I think that overall it turned out quite well, okay for a first attempt and a trial with a new base. If I was to attempt this again I would probably find more delicate nail art tools.

Anyway, I decided to add another feature nail so that the overall look didn't seem plain or unfinished. The rainbow design just really fit with the theme and gave me an excuse to use some other colours to brighten it up. 

So what do you think? Did I jazz up these mythical nails or was it a magical fail? Okay, that sounded daft even to me but I would really like to know your opinion. I'm pleased that I've managed to get another nail post up because it's been pretty full on with health, happiness and wellbeing. Thanks for reading, until next time... Bye!
