The historial, highly coveted unicorn pee nail polish has FOUND ITS WAY TO MY NAILS. Wow. I am so honoured that such a supernatural creative would grace my hands with its urinary excrements.
So you may have heard me mention in my nail polish collection video that I indeed have an original bottle of Clarins 230 aka "Unicorn Pee", but you wouldn't have seen it on my nails up until now. That's cause it took me a year to finally get around to doing this set of videos... woops. Don't blame me, blame the extinction of the unicorn.
In any case, enjoy photos of the legendary piss of the unicorn, an up-close-and-personal video feed of its magical and enchanting properties, and the officially unofficial history of this landmark nail polish!

5MIN VIDEO ON UNICORN PEE UP-CLOSE-AND-PERSONAL:
Unicorn Pee is no longer sold in stores, and is currently only sold on the black market, i.e., eBay, Amazon, or hidden underground nail polish exchange markets.
Now let's check out some photo porn:
Look at that shift! What a gorgeous enchanting shimmer with a vibrant indigo at the outsides and a flashy green at a serious tilt.
This creature was extremely challenge to photograph on its own because the light kept bouncing off of it in ridiculous ways that wanted to blind my camera.
Here's 4 thin coats over a bare nail.
The shift is not as apparently on the nail as in the bottle, unfortunately, and doing 4 coats left my nails looking a little thick and the ends a little bald since the polish is so thin it wouldn't 'coat' the tips properly.
Kind of not such a big deal anymore, amirite?
Here's just one coat of pee over a black creme polish. BAHHH I'M DEAD. This is pretty much the best way to wear unicorn pee and bring out its magical properties. It's not even that hard to capture that intense shift all the way from vibrant magenta/red to neon green! Holy shit batman, I found robin!
Not a shift shot, but wanted to show clearly how small the little shimmers really are.
This is 2 coats of pee over Nails Inc. 'Baker Street', a cobalt blue creme. Wow, does she ever transform, that naughty unicorn misleading us with all her shifty elusive ways! The shimmer appears almost neon pink here, less of a shift going on (better evidenced in the up-close video), but what a beautiful combo!
That's all I got for ya! Videos are worth millions more words than photos are, anyways.
It's true that many brands have tried to re-create the magical properties of the unicorn (see iparallaxe's blog post here for some examples), but as the legend goes, none have ever succeeded in truly replicating the unique and elusive ways of the unicorn. *girl with hand to her side emoji*
So, now I throw the question at you: Do you think unicorn pee is all it's hyped up to be? Would you sacrifice lattes for a few months and buy it yourself? Or would you rather just get it as a gift ;) ?
