Sinful Colors Unicorn

What is the color I cover the least on the blog? Yellow. Yellow is probably the color I have had the ultimate difficulty with. I have issues with green, but yellow is a completely different story. It's hard for me to find a yellow that doesn't make me think of eye crusties you get in the morning or pee. I also have trouble finding a yellow to go with my skin tone. I think I'm too pale for yellow..? Maybe not, I think I found a yellow that works for me, and that I love!

Sinful Colors Unicorn
Unicorn is a pastel lemon creme.

I don't know why this one works for me versus other yellows, but it does. I can assume it's because it's not as in your face as some yellows can be. It's a very nice soft shade. However, it does have the curse of all yellow polishes. The formula is thin and patchy. This took 4 coats to get full coverage, and it probably could of used more. To be honest, this is probably one of the most difficult polishes I've ever worked with. I really do love this yellow on me, so to finally a find a color like this that works, it's worth the extra effort. I know for others this would be a "no way jose!" thing. I totally understand that, but if you're still on a search for just the right yellow, this one may work out for you too.

Happy Monday!

    I love this color and like you I'm not very fond of yellow tones either. I think I should get this... How did it apply? Because it looks so creamy smooth in your pics and it suits your skintone perfectly.

  3. I just bought this color yesterday and have yet to try it - my problem with yellows is that they make me think of mustard. Like I just ate a hot dog and didn't wipe my hands very well...especially when removing!

  8. LMAO....eye crusties & pee :) This one looks nice, although I am with you on the yellow thing. Is this a new one? Is it in the "Carousel" collection that came out a month or so ago?

  17. I'm glad you like this one too. I always find pale colors in general are harder to pull of when you're pale yourself! I'm glad there are handful of good ones out there though. :)

  18. This one is was part of the "Polka Dots" something display. I think it probably would of fit better in Carousel though.
