Chaos & Crocodiles is one of those brands that I always noticed around but never bought any. I was already committed to so many brands that adding a new one would have killed my polish budget. Until I saw swatches of the Once Upon a Unicorn Collection. I was done for. They were so gorgeous that I knew I was going to have to try them. These are the ones that I have so far and the others are patiently waiting for me at home in my mailbox while I am on vacation. Keep an eye out for those ones in the coming weeks.
Tropical Candy Flowers is a medium pink with a subtle holo. It is very similar to ILNP Cutie Pop and Enchanted Polish Horizontal Running.
I needed one coat for full opacity. ONE. COAT.
The polish from the collection that I truly fell in love with is Sugar Spun Magic. I am not a huge fan of purples UNLESS they are these kinds of purples. Dark almost blue or black purples are not for me, but this medium pink-y purple is what I love.
Again, this is one coat for opacity. I really do love when holos are subtle. Here’s one more of Sugar Spun Magic. Well, just because.
Wishing Star Sky is another purple in this collection but I think it’s more periwinkle leaning. Like her sisters, she has a subtle holo and a very creamy formula.
I needed only one coat for this opacity. That means double the manicures from one bottle.
And the last one from this set that I have is City in the Clouds. It’s a gorgeous sky blue creamy holo. I compared it to my Pretty Bitch Hook Up and Enchanted Polish Water For Unicorns and all three were almost perfect dupes.
Again, I only needed one coat for this coverage!!
Overall as a first impression, Once Upon a Unicorn is a great way to be introduced to a brand. It’s definitely one that I now follow and stalk on social media to see what will be released. If you can grab these on the secondary market, I would definitely do so.
