Icing Glamourous

Icing Glamourous is one of the four polishes I picked up at Icing a couple weeks ago when they were having a buy one polish, get one 50% off deal. It was glittery, and holographic, and it called my name. The only shame is that I couldn't get all the holographic goodness to show up in the pictures - in real life, it's almost a linear holo, even though it's technically a scattered holo glitter.

I didn't really expect it to be opaque, but fortunately I was (mostly) wrong about that. I used four coats, and while it's not entirely opaque, most of the time it's so darn glittery that I can't tell it's not opaque even when I'm holding my fingers up to my face. Clearly, it doesn't look that good in the pictures. For an indication of how good it looks in real life, imagine the glitteriness of the first picture times five, plus the holo of the last picture times six or seven...and that should about get you there. I'm sorry I couldn't accurately portray this one. I am so not doing it justice. Also, sorry for my pitiful little nubs. I'm trying to grow them out. Slowly. Very, very slowly. :) Happy hump day!


  1. I HAVE THIS!!! It is such an amazing color!! It is totally better than the pictures, not saying your pictures are bad but it's AMAZING in person!!! I wish I could have gotten it on a bogo50% off deal!! it would have been even better! haha!

  2. just reading the post title made this song pop into my head:'s been playing in my head all day!

    this color reminds me of ChG fairy dust but more opaque. I Think this would be a great top coat coverage polish too

  3. Haha, thanks for the earworm! ;) I have Fairy Dust as well, and it's pretty
    similar...the glitter particles are bigger in Glamourous though, as far as I
    can tell. I'm actually thinking about using Glamourous over my current
    manicure, Essence Choose Me.

  4. Isn't it a great polish? I wish I could have captured it better...and
    doesn't a sale make anything better? ;)

  5. this is gorgeous! great pix, looks amazing on you. :)

  6. Aw, I'm glad! Holo and glitter always cheer me up a bit. :)

  7. This mani made my day!It's so shiny and sparkly and happy!!!The holo goodness never lets you down!
    Happy day Zara!

  8. Oooh I love holo and I love glitter, pretty!

  9. Thanks! I still think I did a fairly crappy job...but then I look at some of
    the first pictures on this blog. Now THAT'S crappy. :)

  10. gorgeous! you did a great job with the photos. glitters are hard to capture.

  11. You should get it! I almost didn't get this one because I didn't think it'd
    be opaque, but I'm so glad I took the plunge.
