I have been looking for the perfect iridescent nail polish for months and finally settled on this wonderful Sparkle Like A Unicorn duo from Nails Inc. (£15 2x14ml).


As you can see this changes from metallic pink to purple to light blue or even transparent, depending what light you are in and what angle you are looking at it from. Amazing effect!


This is more like the traditional colour changing metallic polish which mixes a rose pink with a dark purple but it has extra gold sparkle dust mixed in. So pretty!

Overall verdict

I found the width and curve of the brush really easy to use and ended up with near perfect nails the first time I used this. Drying time isn’t an issue either. However this polish is greatly let down by it’s lack of staying power. It chipped after two days of gentle wear and looked so bad by day three, I peeled it all off. Strange that something flexible enough to peel off also manages to chip. Still, I absolutely love the colours/effects so I’m happy I bought them and will be using them often.

Rating 4/5

Have you found an iridescent polish that you love?

    I stopped using nail polish because of the chipping off. I do gel nails. However the effect is stunning in your nails.

      How long do gel nails last and can you get the colour taken off easily if you get bored of it? I know people get infills but I can’t imagine wanting the same colour for that long.

        I do my gel nails by myself. You can either file the gel or get a remover. You have to let it on your nails for about 15 minutes. Otherwise gel nails can last up to 3 or 4 weeks

        Awesome. Think I might be doing this in future then, thanks!

    Man I would totally buy this, but I haven’t found the time to do my nails in months.
