Guest Swatcher: Clarins 230

In the world of nail polish, Clarins 230 is the holy grail. You can spend your life searching for it, and only the pure of heart can behold it with waking eyes. After a long and arduous quest, Soaper1 recently acquired a bottle. So you’ll have to excuse us for wanting to show you a million pictures — a chance like this doesn’t come around too often.

Clarins 230 is so elusive that it has earned the nickname “unicorn pee.” Often times, hard-to-find items don’t live up to the hype. Not so for 230. It absolutely deserves its reputation.

230 is a sheer polish and multi-chromatic. Given the sheerness, it’s best layered over another polish. And given that it’s next to impossible to find, I want this bottle to last as long as possible.

I swatched it over several colors and I liked it best layered over blue or purple. In these pictures, I layered 1 coat of 230 over 2 coats of OPI Sapphire in the Snow. I wore this until it started chipping, which was around day 4.
