New Nail Polish Colors from Icing

Icing Grape A licious nail polish

Purple nail polish with pink and blue glitter

Happy Father's Day everyone! Hope you had a wonderful day. Today I'm bringing you some new Icing nail polish colors as promised. Besides the funky brush, these all are pretty fabulous shades. Check out all the swatches below.

Grape A Licious, a vibrant purple grape loaded with chunky pink and blue glitter. This one is pretty opaque, you'll only need two coats. 

Icing Pink Sparkle nail polish swatch

Neon Pink Holo nail polish

Pink Sparkle, a neon pink with holographic glitter. I haven't check out my comparisons yet, but I'm thinking this is exactly the same as Claire's Lulu Belle.

Icing Sour Apple nail polish swatch

Apple Green Nail Polish with Gold Shimmer

Sour Apple, a semi sheer apple green with gold shimmer. Three or four coats to achieve bottle color.

Iciing Hazelnut Nail Polish Swatch

Hazelnut, a rich and fabulous hazelnut brown with shimmer. 

Icing Lily Lilac nail polish swatch 

Lily, a gorgeous lilac purple creme. OPI's Done out in Deco is a close dupe. 

Icing Ice Queen Nail Polish Swatch

Ice Queen is a much deeper shade from most gray's I own, but with an added tinge of blue undertones that makes this one special.

Gray Nail Polish Comparisons

I really thought Recycle and Kiss me Here were going to closer dupes, but as you can see, Ice Queen is much darker with some added stormy blue undertones. Really love this.

Have a wonderful night and Monday morning!

Could you do a comparison between mac mercenary and hazlenut? Thanx :-)

Mariah said on Jun 23rd, 2009 5:13 am
Pretty!! How does Grape A Licious compare to Flying Dragon, do you think

Lucy said on Jun 23rd, 2009 5:15 am
These are really some beautiful polishes. I've never used this brand. I like Ice Queen and thanks for the comparison.

I really want Ice Queen and Grape A Licious - never seen Icing here in New Zealand :(

Shayna said on Jun 23rd, 2009 5:17 am
Hazelnut looks like that newer MAC color. Are they close? Which would you recommend?

Atomica said on Jun 23rd, 2009 5:18 am
That purple with the chunky glitter looks like a party on your nails! Where can you buy Icing nail polish? I'm in Canada and I've never seen this brand

Thanks so much Tiff! Grape A licious is certainly special! :) Hi Tami, I sure will, I should have up in a couple of day in this post! :) MAC's Mercenary has more gold shimmer compared to Hazelnut. Hi Mariah, Dragon Fly is a deeper purple and Grape a Licious sways more towards violet, both are very pretty though. Dragon fly is a bit more gritty too :) Hi Lucy, You should definitely try Icing colors, I really love them, minus the brush defects sometimes! But, I'll deal :D Hi Selina, Not sure if they are in New Zealand? In the States, their usually found in Malls... :( Hi Shayna, Hazelnut is much more deeper brown, as is MAC's Mercenary has more goldish tones. I'm hoping to do a comparison real soon :) Hi Atomica, I love the purple! Not sure if they have Icing stores in Canada, but if they do you can find them in Mall's :)

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
