Models Own Nail Polish in Juicy Jules - Review, Pictures, Swatches


How much can one say about nail polish? I mean it either looks pretty or it doesn't, right?  Sure I could speak of the viscosity of the polish, the wear time, the application, etc, but I think that by now you all know what to expect from certain brands.


Models Own nail polish in Juicy Jules is a clear base with small silver and holographic glitter suspended in it.  It applies well. Is not overly thick nor does it chip easily.  The polish in these photos is two coats over Color Club nail polish in Black covered tips.  I chose not to coat my entire nail in approximately 4 coats of Juicy Jules to achieve the opaque glitter finish. However, had I done that, I would have used my trusty Glitter Nail Polish Removal Technique to change my polish.

Today is not about nail polish. It's about Unicorns.

Unicorns?


Yes. Unicorns.  And even more so, Unicorn Dandruff.  If Unicorns were susceptible to dandruff I believe that their dandruff would look like Models Own nail polish in Juicy Jules.  

We have "Unicorn Pee" which is the long since discontinued Clarins 230. We have "Unicorn Puke" from Cult Nails, was renamed Clairvoyant, but then also discontinued, why not have Unicorn Dandruff?  The base is too clear to be Unicorn poop or snot, Yes. I think Unicorn Dandruff is appropriate.


Sometimes when people draw unicorns they add wings, for some reason. A horse with wings is called a Pegasus. A horse with one horn is called a Unicorn.  So what is a horse with wings AND a horn called?

Is it like a Mule?  You know. A mule is when a horse and a donkey mate and the mule is the offspring. (I don't know why it's not called a Dorse or a Honkey...oh wait.  I do know why.)   Mules are always sterile.  Horses and Zebras have been mated creating a Zorse, which is also sterile.  Using the scientific method I would then have to surmise that like the mating of most other animal hybrids, a Pegasus/Unicorn offspring would also be sterile.  I'm glad we established that.


What does one call a Pegasus and Unicorn hybrid?  Pegicorn? Unisus? Unipeg?  According to wikipedia The foremost authority on everything on the interwebz*  
"A winged unicorn, pegacorn, unipeg or alicorn is a fictional equine with a set of wings and a horn. The term alicorn, which describes the theoretical substance that a unicorn's horn is made from, has also been used as a name for winged unicorns."
*This is written with sarcasm. Wikipedia is known for having glaring errors when it comes to certain facts, but hey, it's fast and you get the general answer.

So I guess I like Unipeg. Alicorn sounds silly. And Unisis sounds too much like a corporate entity that delivers mainframe computing  and software development..  So Unipeg it is.

Well, I'm glad that's settled.

I see no dandruff on this Unipegasisacorn

  2. I was hoping for pegicorn...

    The nail polish is beautiful! Glad to see now we have unicorn dandruff. My only problem with this blog? Even if I don't like the color, I always have to buy it for the anecdote. Same applies here. Now I have to buy it just to say I'm wearing unicorn Dandruff on my nails. Damn.

  4. I would love to crawl into your mind some time, but I honestly think the overwhelming randomness of the thoughts swirling around in there would kill me. Thanks for taking it easy on us and only revealing those little tidbits once a day. You're doing your part to keep the world sane.

    1. Yeah. Inside my brain, It's not a safe place to be. It's better you view it from a safe distance. :-)

  5. I wonder what would happen if someone frankened Unicorn Pee, Puke, and Dandruff together. Could be amazing...or it could be the end of the world. Those unicorns, look all sugary sweet are really evil wrapped in glitter and rainbows. Which, in my opinion, is really one of the best ways to have your evil.

    1. I agree. It would probably cause a rift in the space/time continuum and we all would end up with Gorillas, Chimps and Orangutangs as our masters.

  6. bwahaha. This is my first time commenting...Im such a lurker...sneeeeaky sneaky.

    Anyways, your blog has definitely become my favorite as you and I share the same sense of humor it seems. I can also share the posts with your internet memes with my boyfriend which is nice - I can get him involved with my makeup obsession.

    I just wanted to let you know there's such a thing as a unicorn poop cookie!

  7. Elvira, dear, do you have a fever? This post is delightfully deranged, even by your own standards.

    I will take this opportunity to note that Sweet Libertine's Lusty Strumpet Society offers a Unicorn Farts eyeshadow.

    1. No fever. Just a stream of consciousness type thing. Although I have been told that I'm slightly deranged!

  8. I am so glad that you took the time to clarify the unicorn/pegasus differences in this post...it is so perturbing when people act like they are the same thing. Lovely nail polish pics too!

    1. LOL. Yes. I felt it had to be said. I consider it a public service to inform people of the differences! :-)

  10. Hahaha! I myself prefer pegacorn (mainly because it sounds a bit racey :D) This polish is very nice though. Oh and the unicorn poop...gotta make those for the kids!
