Icing Nail Polish Review

A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing through an Icing store and noticed that they had remodeled  to include a huge cosmetics area. When I spotted the nail polish, I knew I had to try them out. They were all on sale for 2 dollars each and the selection of colors was pretty great, so I bought three of them.

A few days ago, I finally got around to trying them out. I didn’t have very high expectations. The packaging is nice, but as far as I know, Icing isn’t exactly known for their makeup as much as they are for their jewelry and accessories. I wanted to get a good idea of the lasting power of the polish, so I used it without a base coat or a top coat.

My first impression was that I was really pleased by the size of the brush. It was large enough to quickly apply the polish. The polish itself was really smooth and glided on nicely. I tried on the green polish first, and noticed that it did take a couple of coats to get it fully opaque. I thought that would be the case with all of them, but when trying the other two, I only needed 2 coats to finish up.

The drying time was pretty normal. It took about 15 minutes to become mostly dry, to the point where I could carry on working and typing without messing up the manicure.

Now all that was left was to see how long the wear would last. Here’s what it looked like by day 4:

Not bad, huh? I didn’t have any chipping, just a bit of tip wear, which is NOT what I was expecting. I imagine that with a top coat, this will last even longer.

Final Verdict on Icing Nail Polish

I believe the original price for these polishes is about $5, which is still pretty inexpensive, and for the wear I was able to get out of it, I think it’s worth the price. Certainly pick up a couple if they go on sale again. Go ahead and grab one for full price too, and see for yourself what you think!
