Enchanted Polish Water For Unicorns + NYC Shimmer Blast Sweet Candy

Hi everyone! I was lucky enough to finally slay my Enchanted Polish Water For Unicorns lemming recently via a swap. I was worried I would be let down when I finally saw it in person, but nope, it is amazing! What I was hoping for was a blue holo that was close to the color of my beloved Illamasqua Fern, and this one was really close. Water For Unicorns is a bright, medium blue linear holographic with a creamy base. The holographic effect isn't the strongest out there since it is in a creamy base, but it is still very nice. The color is just mesmerizing. The formula was fantastic and required 2 coats for full coverage. I'm very much in love with this polish!



After wearing this for a day, I still didn't want to take it off. I decided to add a little sparkle to it to see what would happen. I picked up NYC Shimmer Blast topcoat in Sweet Candy. This topcoat has a clear base with purple/ pink shimmer. I used 1 coat of Sweet Candy over Water For Unicorns here. I loved how it added a whole new dimension to the polish without completely obscuring the holo. The shimmer was even more obvious in real life than in these pictures. I absolutely adored this combo!



I found NYC Shimmer Blast Sweet Candy at Rite Aid in the newer displays. Be sure to pick this beauty up before it's gone!

Enchanted Polish is available from their Big Cartel shop as well as from Nail Polish Canada (Canada), Mei Mei's Signatures (Singapore), and Femme Fatale Cosmetics (Australia). These polishes sell out really quickly, so be sure to check out restock times so you can snatch them up when you can!

    1. So many Enchanted Polishes are gorgeous, and at least with the mystery polishes if you don't like it, they are easy to resell. You should definitely nab one! :D You will love Sweet Candy!

  2. Water for Unicorns is one of my lemmings too. I put out an ISO not too long ago but nothing materialized. Some day hopefully!
