I'm Swatchin' You - Icing Evergreen

Good morning!  I'm getting soooo close to 50 followers and a giveaway!!!  I've been putting aside pretties and can't wait!

Today's color is from Icing.  I have to be honest here.  I don't know why I keep going back and getting my Icing polish.  IMO, the quality just isn't there.  Anytime I look at buying their polish, I have to check the brush in store since some of their polish has crazy brushes.  I checked the brush prior to buying this color.  It wasn't mop-like, as their wonky brushes are, but I unfortunately did not notice that the brush is bent to one side.  :o(  I've also noticed that the polishes are often goopy...not necessarily thick, but definitely goopy.  I'm sorry, but you should not have to thin a brand new polish.  However, I do love some of their colors, so they keep sucking me in!

Sorry for the rant...on to the color!  This one is called Evergreen, and it really is quite fetching.  It's green glitter in a green jelly base.  The application, as I said, could have been better.  The polish was goopy and the brush bent, which made any hope of not making a mess a distant dream.  But in the end, I do love the color.  And I loved this as part of my Wicked Spongicure!  C'est la vie.

SH Double Duty and SH Insta-Dri for base and top.


  1. yes, damn them but it is a nice one!

    1. They really do make great polish. I have the same problem with Spoiled - love the colors, hate the brush.
