Valentines for Unicorns

Hello everyone! I hope you've had a great weekend, I know I'm not ready for it to end yet. Today I have what was supposed to be the third post in my Valentine's Day series..but it kind of got lost along the way. I underestimated the opacity of Cult Nails Clairvoyant (formerly known as Unicorn Puke) and thought I could make a pretty purple-tinted pink flakie mani..not quite what happened.

This is two coats of Cult Nails Clairvoyant over two coats of OPI Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj collection. I really didn't think the purple in Clairvoyant was so obvious, but it ended up taking over my entire mani. It's not that I don't think this is beautiful, it's just not at all what I was expecting. Clairvoyant sure looks pretty here though, I guess it's not just for wearing over black. Keep reading for some more photos of this purple spin on Valentine's Day.

This is in indoor lighting, look at that feather on my pinky, jeez.

I did not use topcoat with this mani, pardon the microscopic scratches on my tips. 
I'm not sure if I will wear Clairvoyant like this again, it fell flat under some lights but under others it was a purple-pastel-flakie dream.
