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!
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.
Have you found an iridescent polish that you love?

My nails tear and bend really easily so even the most hard wearing of nail polishes flake off after a few days.
Mani Mask promises to strengthen and condition damaged nails and conceal with a semi matt finish.
This dried incredibly quickly to a silk matt finish and made my nails stonger immediately. It also evened out the white tips of my nails which can become transparent in places. As nail supplements don’t work very well due to my illnesses, I’m really looking forward to getting my nails healthier by using this instead.
The end result looks like my natural nails but better.
……It’s the end of day two now and not a single chip, virtually unheard of with my nails!

Sea Punk has gained almost as much popularity as Cyber Punk and Steam Punk and in much shorter space of time. I love how fun, expressive and er, shiny it is! I think it’s more suited to tweens, teens, people in their 20’s or the kind of people that have an eternally endearing childlike kind of sweetness about them. If I went with it completely, I’d look like The Little Mermaid’s insane older sister. I’d like to incorporate a couple of Sea Punk inspired garments into to my wardrobe though so I thought I’d better start slow with this nail polish first.
Beautiful colour which reminds me of when the setting suns rays hit the waves in the sea. I took two pictures in different lights to show you the iridescent effect clearly.
I applied two thin coats. It lasted for 3 days before I noticed the first tiny chip on one nail and then it took another 2 days until I needed to totally remove it. That’s longer than any other polish I’ve used that isn’t a professional gel type.
