New Icing Glitters....swatches and review...Part 1

Good morning! Today's post is going to be a long one.....I have lots of pics. to show you. I was in Icing the other day, and found new glitters! They have so many good glitters there, it's crazy! I got several, and actually left some behind. I'm sure I'll get them eventually though. ;-) As always they were buy one get one 50% off. I don't think that ever changes, and I hope it never does! ;-) While I was there, the girl checking me out, happened to mention that they are getting Magnetic polishes within the next week! I'm so excited to try them out. I don't have any magnetics yet, but I've wanted some forever! I'll def. be grabbing them when I see them. ;-)

Okay, on to the pics! :-) (by the way, click on the pics. for a much better view of the glitters)

Written in the Stars-a clear base with a blueish tint, it has med. round holo pieces, and blue holo stars. Application was good, but you do kind of have to pick the stars out. They are a little hard to get, but not terrible. I've def. had worse, and this polish is so pretty, it's worth it. I layered it over another Icing polish. This polish doesn't have a name, and it came in a cube with four minis. It's a med. blue with lots of silver shimmer. Application was great. The formula was a bit on the thin side, so I used three coats.

Pics. of the two together.

The mini. blue polish without a name....I really wish it had a name, and a full sized bottle. I really love this polish!





Next is my fav. of them all....After Party. AP is made up of multi colored shreds of glitter. I def. don't have anything like it. At all. I was a little worried about how this one would apply. I was afraid it would stick up or be rough, like some bar glitters are. However, it applied wonderfully, and completely smooth. I was really surprised. I applied two coats over Finger Paints Black Expressionism.

Last, but not least, is Birthday Beyotch....ha,ha...love the name! ;-) BB is made up of multi colored, small and med. sized round glitters. I know we've all seen this one before, but I just can't seem to pass up a multi colored glitter....plus the name kinda rocks. ;-) I applied two coats of BB over Revlon Jelly. Jelly is a bright pink jelly. I think it might be my fav. pink jelly. Application was great, and I only needed two coats for it to be opaque.

Pics. of the two together first.

Whew! That was a lot of pics. to post! What do you think about these new glitters? Do you plan to pick any of them up, or have you already? I'm really loving them...Icing does know how to make a good glitter polish. ;-) I will have Part 2 for you in the next few days or so.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you have a great Sunday! :-)

  2. they're all sooo pretty, but i've fallen for after party, i think the sharp pieces give it an edgey look while it being multicoloured still makes it fun !
