Fall 09: Icing Limited Edition Nail Polish Set
|Product: Icing 5 piece Nail Polish Set, Nail Lacquer 0.4 oz|
|Price: $15.99/per kit|
|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?
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.
Teal Shimmer is really gorgeous, blue based teal with silver shimmer.
Purple Shimmer is a frosty Purple.
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.
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.
