Sinful Unicorn: A perfect yellow, but...

Happy Mother's Day to everyone! Sinful's Unicorn is a perfect shade of yellow--a touch darker than butter, a hint lighter than lemon. At only $1.99 a bottle and a shade of yellow that actually works for me, I should be happy, right? It's a trickster though, because the formula seems to be a good consistency, it flows well, but...4 coats? It is lovely, but a bit impractical because of the time it takes to apply all of those coats and then the time to let it dry.



Unicorn isn't really sheer, but it's very streaky and uneven, so additional coats are needed to obtain uniform coverage. Now that Revlon has purchased Sinful Colors, maybe the formula on some of their creme shades will see some improvement. Not that Revlon pastel cremes are much better in a lot of cases though!

  1. I don't like Sinful polishes. I bought 3 around Halloween last year and the wear was just crap... though the colors were pretty.

  2. It's a pretty yellow and looks awesome with the CG gray crackle, but it stains. My nails where all yellowish after I removed it. :(

  4. HA! Unicorn, doesn't remind me of a unicorn at all. Though, I do really like the colour, reminds me of summery breakfast in the mornings. SO warm and buttery

  8. I think that's a common problem with pastel yellows, no?

  9. Yup it's a stainer alright. First time in a long time I forgot a base coat. Well maybe I didn't forget, I was just being lazy. I learned my lesson!

  10. Oh, I just bought this color and haven't yet worn it. Hmmm, I wonder if I should just return it or if putting a white coat on first will stop it from staining. Thanks for the heads up!

  12. Sorry this was a butt to apply/let dry, but the results are very pretty; one of the loveliest yellows I've seen to date, in fact (and that's a lotta yellas THIS season :D)!!!

    Happy (Belated) Mother's Day, Gorgeous Mary! <3
