Fairyland

Fairyland Collage

Well, here’s another polish pick from the wayback machine, Candy Lacquer’s pastel rainbow unicorn glitter, Fairyland.  Along with Licorice Allsorts, the chunky matte glitter I featured in a pretty manicure the other day, Fairyland is the first indie polish I ever purchased.  Fairyland, a wild mix of every kind of holographic glitter you could imagine (hexes, circles, tiny squares, gigantic squares, moons, stars, diamonds and hearts) is holding up ever so slightly less well than Licorice Allsorts.  Some of the colour in the glitter has begun leeching into the base, lending Fairyland a pale green kind of tinge.  This is quite common with holographic glitters – after four or so years, they begin to lose their colourfastness.  This is a little unfortunate in that it limits its use somewhat to blue and green-hued polishes, but I actually think it looks best over blues, greens and blue-greens anyways, so that’s alright with me.  It’s just such a gorgeous polish, and I was simply in the mood for flashy unicorn disco nails.  Must be a day ending in Y.
