Good evening everyone! Tonight I have some nails that look like they are straight out of Grimm Fairy Tales. A few months back I met Amy through Mani-Mommies and shortly after meeting her she started up her own indie line with some super cute blends. I fell in love with, hehehe, Unicorn Farts. I quickly grabbed up a bottle and boy am I glad I did. This stuff is gorgeous. The holographic sparkle is perfect! The polish it self is pretty sheer so I wanted to pair it with a matching base and Avon Loving Lavender was a perfect match.

This color was part of their spring line up.
This finish is two coats. I could have went with a single coat but used a different base this time….
Loving Lavender is a very pretty cream base that just screams for sparkle and Unicorn Farts delivers! They were truly made for each other. Once I placed two layers of the Unicorn Farts I felt like I had just stepped into a Grimm fairy tale. The glitter reminds me of something a young princess would wear to all the beautiful balls.

I love it!
The holographic finish is so soft and elegant, the perfect pair.
Now I would highly recommend heading over to Etsy and checking out Perception Nail Lacquer. Amy is always creating new blends that are to die for…. I have more in transit as we speak. You can also check out Mani-Mommies or Perception Nail on Facebook for up to date info.
Ok, so the new base coat I used…. Elmer’s Glue! I was hearing from many different sources that this was the perfect solution for glitter lovers and I had to try it out for myself. Basically you use Elmer’s glue as a base coat and when it comes time to change polish, you just peel it off and no damage to the nail. Guess what, it works! I used an empty mini bottle I had laying around to put the glue into to make application easier. I brushed on one thin coat and waited about 20 mins for it to completely dry before painting my nails. I then proceeded like normal and still ended with my fast dry top coat. Well here’s the results.
This was all 10 nails!
I am sold on the Elmer’s glue. I only made it a full 24 hours before I had to try peeling it off but no chips in that time frame. I am currently wearing another mani and hopefully I can make it a few more days before I have the urge again to peel it off. So there you go, a beautiful combo and a godsend solution for glitter lovers. I hope everyone has a great evening and will see you next time.
