ICING: Teal me I'm Awesome

It never really occured to me to scour Icing for good nail polish. I usually just bypass the store front but when a fellow blogger posted a haul I had to stop in and check out their inventory. I posted one review/swatch of their magnetic polish here. Since then I've purchased one more magnetic (coming soon) and a glitter. The glitter is called 'Teal me I'm Awesome' and is every bit as true as the name claims:

 Here it is over Sally Hansen "Gun Metal" (review of that tomorrow). Can you say WOW? This looks amazing - like something Deborah Lippmann would conjure up. This is 4.50, but Icing always has Buy One Get One 50% off, so an even better deal! Teal Me I'm Awesome looks so much more expensive than 4.50 to me.

You have to click on these pictures for a bigger view. They're just beautiful. The application is a breeze. Make sure one layer dries before you add another. This is just one layer of the polish. I can only imagine how awesome full coverage with this would be an I intend on trying it when I have the time to sit and let each layer dry. I didn't get much pooling with it at all. It's simple to get the glitter on the brush and onto your nail. I know with some polishes you try and try and all you have is a bunch of micro glitter on your brush - but not with this one!

I love it. Go to Icing, buy this now, thank me later! While you're at it, pick up their Magnetic polishes because those are just as awesome! For 9.00 a piece you're practically stealing. You probably haven't even read this far, you're still staring at those pictures, aren't you?

I'm going to have to drag my husband into Icing and have a look at their polishes. We normally avoid places like Claire's and Icing, they always play horrible music. But I'll make an exception for some glitter goodness.

I just found your blog, and I love this polish! I am a big fan of nail polishes at The Icing... it's a good secret! I posted about SOPI's "I Only Shop Vintage" today; as soon as I put it on, I realized I'd purchased the Icing's dupe before the original. Oops! I'll have to go back and see if I can't find Teal Me I'm Awesome.

I love it, too! I need to pull it out and wear it again. Icing is a great haven for nail polish. How funny you already had the dupe, a way cheaper one at that :P
