The Icing Nail Polish

I always thought about trying these but never did so on my birthday I finally bought one and have loved it ever since. Then last week I went back and got three more. So here they are...

The Colors: Smooth like butta, Cosmo Cutie, 7th Inning Stretch and Lucky 7.
Cute names right?!

These 4 that I have dry to a matte finish but I do know they have other finishes as well. They dry really fast and if you make mistakes you can't really tell because of the finish it sort of evens out. I really like them though and know that I will definitely be getting more. I do find that with certain colors like the yellow and green you have to build it up and do like 3 coats to get it to the desired color. I also top it with a clear polish to give it shine, you can leave it though if you like the matte effect. The formula is light and easy to spread but not at all watery. The brush is just sligtly stiff so you have good control.
*EDIT: Alyssa reminded me, for me it was close to 2 weeks before it started chipping so it has really good staying power!*

Where can you buy it and for how much???

They are available only at The Icing accessory store for $3.50 each and they always have sales such as BOGO 50% off.

How does it look on??

I didn't do a full on review because there really isn't much info out there about them but if you have any questions on anything I might have left out just let me know and I can try and answer it the best I can for you!

How many days can you go before the color start chipping off? I think I concern about that more than anything... hehe~

It looks nice on your finger though! :)

Wow that's insane to go for two weeks before it starts chipping!!! :O I think OPI and China Glaze take one week and then starts chipping. :/

@jen I did 2 coats of the color and one of top coat. They come out a little sheer at first so it takes another coat to build up the color a little. Hope that helped! =)
