Limited Edition Mini Sets From Icing by Claires
Hope your having a wonderful Saturday afternoon. It actually turned out to be a beautiful day here in Kentucky ya'll. Today I'm bringing you another fabulous limited edition set from Icing that had me at "green glitter," hello.
Each set comes with five miniature nail polish bottles that retails for $10.99/set. The glitters are pretty spectacular, I'm just bummed that these are Limited Edition and not available in full sized bottles. Oh, how can you do this to us Icing?!
Oddly, every single glitter set that was stocked, didn't have a sticker at the bottom with the name?? Hmm, so that must mean their extra special!
On to the swatches.
Green Glitter is the one held repsonsible for my impulsive buy, a bright (not neon) grass green with sliver glitter. A bit semi sheer that needed four coats for bottle color. Very pretty.
Purple Glitter is a gorgeous deep purple with blue undertones and silver glitter. Great coverage in two coats.
Green and Purple glitter together. Two of my favorites.
Black Glitter is a rich black with silver glitter that had great coverage in two coats.
Red Glitter is a cherry red with silver glitter. Two coats for bottle coverage.
Ms. Red and Black.
White Glitter is a clearish base with white and blue chunkier glitter compared to the others. Three coats on each nail.
The Neon set was kinda my pity buy for the Buy one, get on half off deal. Most of these colors are available in full sized bottles, if you only wanted one or two. On all my neon swatches I used, one coat of white polish as a base and one without.
Neon Yellow always seems to be the problem child of neons, regardless of the brand. And, using a french white as a base cuts out half of my application time. Anymore, I amost always use a white base for yellow and green neons.
The next three really didn't need a white base coat, the color pigmentation was pretty good.
Orange and Purple Neon that had good coverage.
Pink Neon that also had good coverage. Have a great weekend!

I know that some people despise mini bottles, but I love them because it makes painting my toenails way easier! Hmm...I'm in Canada and have never seen this brand before. :( It's too bad because I really like Purple Glitter.
