Hi guys. Ah, another week. First thing's first...I just wanted to give Brooke of Getcha Nails Did a shoutout for giving us a shoutout. Thank you so much, Brooke! You're too nice :)
This weekend I engaged in some serious retail therapy. Not only did I buy a draped high-waisted skirt, a nice silk-lookin' cobalt blue blouse, a sequined vest, and two new bras from H&M, I also found these "limited edition" Icing nail polishes at the mall for 50% off. That must be a sign of good things to come, right? I had had my eye on this set of nail polish for a while...can you guess why?
Look at that low-end possible Wagon Trail dupe! I know you're thinking, god, this chick has Wagon Trail and she's still obsessed with it. I can't help it. Plus I think this one has more gold shimmer than the China Glaze. ANYWAY, this set is normally $16. That's way too much. The polishes aren't quite minis--they're .4 fl oz--but they're not full-sized either. This was marked down to $8 so I scooped them up. I'm sure a lot of you guys know this, but the polishes included in Icing nail polish sets are sadly nameless. I'm just going to name the ones I show you as I show them to you.
I chose the color all the way on the left first, which I'm going to call Ginger Soufflé. It's a difficult color to describe. It seems to be orange, red and salmon all at the same time. It has a lot of gold shimmer in it that shows up way better in the bottle than on the nail. It's still pretty, but I think it might be what Scrangie has galled *gasp* a "mom color." Shit.

I have to say...I was quite impressed with the formula on this. It was a little thick, but other than that it was great. This was two really easy coats with one coat of Seche Vite. I did this manicure on Saturday afternoon and I'm still wearing it now with no tipwear or chipping, so I'm going to have to say that I'm a fan of little Ginger Soufflé. That's all for today. I hope everyone has a good start to their weeks.
