Unicorn Nails




                     Wearing: Maybelline Express Finish 210 Pastel Purple
                                      Sephora by OPI It's Bouquet With Me (discontinued)

I'm not sure why I'm calling these unicorn nails. Maybe because they remind me of the Lime Crime lipstick packaging (you know, the purple case with the silver unicorn on it)? Speaking of....how much do I want to try the Lime Crime Lipsticks and Velvetines?! I've been holding off because I haven't been hearing the best feedback about the company. (I have been seeing things about people never receiving their orders, and recently the site was hacked.) Have you ever purchased anything from Lime Crime? If so, how was your experience? I know Urban Outfitters sells Lime Crime products, but they don't carry everything. It might just be better to see if I can find my favorite items on Urban Outfitters, though.

What are you doing this weekend? I'm hoping that my migraine goes away and that I can get some much needed relax time. I see a face mask and peppermint tea in my future...

Happy Saturday, everyone! :-)

    1. Lime Crime's products look awesome, but after hearing so much negative feedback about the company's ethics, I don't think I will be purchasing anything from them. I've heard that LA Splash sells some very similar products of good quality and a better price! I think I'm going to try out their liquid lipsticks.

  5. i had never heard of lime crime but i can't imagine terrible product/risk of not receiving said product would stop you from ordering makeup with purple sparkly unicorns on it...

    1. Hahahaha I know.... but since I've written this post, I've heard more and more negative feedback about the company. Luckily, through all of this research I've found another company, LA Splash, that also sells uniquely colored lip products. I'm using all of my will power not to purchase the blue one....

  6. I haven't purchased from Lime Crime but I've not heard one positive thing about them that wasn't from a blogger/youtuber. I am personally backing away from them but at least UO has a great return policy. Really like these nails; weekend pampering is the best.

    1. Since I've written this post I've heard even more negative feedback about the company so I'm not planning on buying anything from them as cool as their products look. Through all of this, I did come across another brand, LA Splash, which sells similar products and for a better price! I've been window shopping at LA Splash for the past couple of days....

  17. Your nails are fantastic! I really love the color and the sparkles are a nice touch! I have never purchased anything off Lime crime but it scares me that you say they have been getting bad feedback. I hope you recovered from your migraine, those are never fun.

    1. Thanks, Rebecca! Glad you enjoy the touch of sparkles just as much as I do! Since I've published this post, I've heard even more shady things about Lime Crime, so needless to say, I will not be purchasing from them! Luckily, I think I've already found a company that sells similar products! And yes my migraine is gone, but ironically as I respond to this post I have another headache...I think I am ready for the weekend! ;-)

  18. Wuuut who would hack a makeup company? That's so unconventional haha. That's too bad their site isn't the most reliable- but at least you can still get their products from UO! peaking of which, this is THE cutest manicure, ever. It seriosuly does remind me of a unicorn. I want to copy you immediately :)

    ps- hope your migrane is gone!

    1. I did some more research and heard nothing but negative comments :-(
      So much for my Lime Crime dream, but I'm on to better things (I've already found another company that sells similar products: LA Splash. Have you heard of it?)
      Glad you love the manicure! Send me a pic of yours if you try it out!
