I'm 21. I'm a part-time cosmetology student, I also work full-time. I'm pretty lazy, and don't lift my fingers to do many things in my free time, except to decorate their tips =]

This blog is to document my progress, as I continue to try new things with my nails as much as possible.

I am in no way affiliated with the brands of products that I review on here, I just really love shopping.

Questions? I'm also on facebook

The Ultimate Want

Today, I am sad.  I fear I will never own my own bottle of Clarins 230.  It's a fact that I deal with, day to day.  I get by.  How could a polish so perfect be so freaking discontinued, and goes for over a hundred bucks on ebay.  Oh, the things I could do with the amazing Unicorn Pee.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, seriously do yourself a favor and google it.  You're not actually doing yourself a favor, because now you want it just as much as I do, and unless you're completely insane you're not gonna shell out the cash.  On the small chance that you ARE that completely insane, could you see if they'll throw in another bottle?

Anyway, so if you can't tell, today I was craving some color-shifting goodness, oh yes.  I'll have to make do with what I have, since I don't have the most precious of all.

note: These pictures were taken weeks ago when my camera was all wonky, and apparently I decided they weren't even good enough to watermark lol

Wow, these pictures are bad.

This is OPI Not Like The Movies from the Katy Perry collection, three coats. It's a weird gray/steel color from afar, but even in the bottle (not pictured) you can tell the color shift from purple to green in different light.  I had commented on another blog's post about this polish, having no idea that it had come out in a different color.  Apparently this version was only made for a short while when it came out, and then they switched to something different, something less duochrome.  So I'm lucky I guess!

I thought China Glaze Liquid Crystal from the Prismatic collection would go perfectly on top! I accented my thumb and ring fingers with it.  It's great because the colors shift from blue to purple, so my fingers are shifting to different colors on different fingers =] On the rest I added China Glaze Fairy Dust, for giggles =] I love the holographic shimmery goodness it adds.

If I can't have Clarins 230, then I'll just make do with what I do have=]
I do apologize for the horrible mess that are these pictures, this post was meant for a few weeks back and it slipped through the cracks of my brain..It really is a very awesome polish in real life.


  1. Pretty! I have a colour-shift powder that will apparently make something *like* Unicorn Pee, but I also have Fantasy Fire which is pretty much the same colour-shift wise... those should be cheaper to get a hold of!

    1. oh thank you! I had been trying to find knock off versions of it but all the descriptions would say is that none of them would go through all the color changes...which i guess doesn't matter much lol i'll be on the lookout for that one=]

  2. I was just going to say the same as Lanmuffin! Fantasy fire by max factor is basically the same thing and cheaper :)

  3. I have awarded you the "One Lovely Blogger" award! Check out my post for details! Congrats! :)

  4. Do you think Clarins 230 could be frankened? It's pretty complex, it would be a great challenge.

    1. I would definitely hope so.. I think the stuff is called spectraflair? the fine shimmery holo goodness...I could be wrong. I hope to have the stuff to try it out one day!


Thank you for reading, I do appreciate your thoughts and opinions =]
