ABC Challenge: U is for Unicorns


Hey there!  We've got another tough letter this week for the ABC Challenge with 'U'.  I didn't sweat it too much cuz 'U' really only stands for one thing and that's Unicorns!


Aren't they cute??  I couldn't get a great photo of them because I kept getting a glare no matter which way I moved my hand, but I hope you get a general idea of the adorableness here.  I used this tutorial as inspiration for this manicure, and while my unis aren't perfect, I still think they're pretty darn cute and more than sufficient to meet the letter requirement this week :)


I'm a little sad that I only had time to do one hand completely, so my right hand is unicorn-less, but at least I have five of the little buddies on my left to cheer me up :)  Additionally, I have a crap ton of nail mail coming this week and I may have spent half of my rent budget on sales this weekend.  My local Sally's had China Glaze's Cirque de Soleil collection (including Creative Fantasty and It's a Trap-eze) and the Avant Garden collection (including Fancy Pants and Keep Calm, Paint On) on clearance so you know I had to pick up about 6 of those.  Plus, my Ulta restocked O.P.I.'s My Vampire is Buff AND I Can't Find My Czechbook which I've been missing out on.  All in all, a good polish weekend was had!

I can't wait to see what the creative ladies in the Challenge came up with for this week.  You can check them out via the thumbnails below.  As always, thanks so much for reading!

    1. I thought about using acrylic but it was too hard to match the colors, polish was just easier in this case. Thanks!

  9. You are crazy! But they turned out awesome! Sooo cute! If I even had thought of Unicorn, I would have probably gone with Sinful's yellow polish.
