I fowarded some of this information to Nicole (the owner and creator of Lilypad Lacquer) and asked her to create a polish that matched my friend. I think she nailed it with the first mix.
Then it was time to name the new polish.
One question I asked my friend was "Dragons or unicorns?". The answer "Dragons of course, but unicorns in second place!". Hence the name. :-)
Dragons vs Unicorns has a strong holo effect. The colour shifts from a light steel-blue shimmer to a really dark blue, almost brownish-black (as always difficult to capture with the camera). The strong colour shift effect is a bit similar to Lilypad Llarowe exclusive XOXO, but the latter is lighter and shifts to coppery brown.
As often with Lilypad it is almost a one-coater. I used two. No top coat in the photos but I applied it afterwards. I often do that because of the shrinkage some top coats cause. It is always more visible in photos than in real life.
I think I don't need to mention that my friends seemed happy with the present. :-)
Just look at the photos. Enjoy!
