Fall 09: Icing Limited Edition Nail Polish Set

Icing Fall 09 Nail Polish Set

Product: Icing 5 piece Nail Polish Set, Nail Lacquer 0.4 oz 
Price: $15.99/per kit
Steph's Rating:
Buy it: Icing Stores

Now that you've seen the Gothic Lovin' side of Icing's Halloween Set, it's time to bring you more of a reserved, Fall collection of teal, purple, orange, taupe and black shimmers that's right up my alley.

The formula and application was a total hit for me, and quite honestly that doesn't happen as often as I'd like from Icing. Each color is shimmer based with either gold or silver. Like most Limited Edition collections, there's no official polish names.

Are you ready guys for some swatches?

Icing Pink/Orange Shimmer Nail Polish

Icing LE Fall Nail Polish Set

Orange Shimmer is a hard shade to describe. Is it Orange or is it Pink? Maybe even a rustic combo of red, pink and orange with gold shimmer.

Icing Teal Shimmer Nail Polish

icing Limited Edition Nail Polish Sets 

Teal Shimmer is really gorgeous, blue based teal with silver shimmer.

Icing Purple Shimmer Nail Polish

Icing limited edition nail polish sets

Purple Shimmer is a frosty Purple.

Icing Black Shimmer Nail Polish

 Icing by Claire's limited edition sets

Black Shimmer is a deep, olive brown with gold shimmer. It's a bit more olive green compared to China Glaze Wagon Trail, both are very similar.

Icing Khaki Taupe nail polish

Icing by Claire's Nail Polish Set

Khaki Shimmer is a cross between gray and khaki with silver shimmer.

Overall, Good Collection! A great selection of colors for Fall. Each shade was opaque and applied fairy well with two coats. Formula is Big 3 Free. Makes great holiday gifts for any nail polish lover. 

What do you guys think of the colors in this set? I have a special treat for my glitter vixens, stay tuned for massive bling, bling from Icing's Holiday Mini Set.

Thanks for posting this. I really like Icing's polishes. That said, swap out the black for a gold and you'd have Wizard of OOh-Aaz.

I've been eyeing this collection for a while. I was wondering how close that black with gold shimmer was to Wagon Trail. I also like the orangey one. This is $15.99 at my Icing. That seems a little pricey...

I really like the Khaki Shimmer! It's a very pretty color that I'll definitely have to try and find. I've never used Icing polish before so I look forward to adding it to my collection.

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.

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

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.
