Last night I took a look in my untrieds box and I realized I have so much stuff in there that I haven't tried!! I have polishes that I have not tried out yet from the wonderful Tuli, Deez Nailz, Helen and Polish Pixie!! What am I doing with all these untrieds??!!

So I decided I would try out some of the older polishes I had in the bin, some Icing's from my Vegas trip a couple of months ago. These colors look like a rainbow together, very pretty! Since I don't particularly like just swatching colors since it is so time consuming and not to mention a waste of nail polish, I only painted one nail on each hand.

I painted three coats on each nail and I would say that most needed all three coats. The green one was the only one that stayed sheer.

I realized this morning though that I totally forgot to get the names of these colors - d'oh! I will try to remember and get them tonight and update this post in the morning with the names.

Whoa! I particularly like the red!

Deez Nailz ~ where the CANADIAN Bloggers at ? said...

Whoa The icing's all look really good.

i love how they have a broad range of colors and finishes, but they are always soooo sheer for me that I usually pass on them. At the moment I will be picking up China Glaze instead of Claire's... (sad face)because I am super-happy with their pigmentation throughout their whole line.

Mostly I want to find out which brand those Billie polish's are like.... They are made in the U.S. but I cannot find out where. I have not tried a polish like these before... hmmmmm

I especially love the gold and the red. They all look so pretty lined up together :)

Rai said...

I totally picked this up one day & put it down... figured it wasn't worth the price. lol

Nessa said...

They all look lovely. It's crazy that you and Scrangie both have done posts with rainbow nail polishes!

Very pretty the way you arranged the polishes. Just gorgeous. I like the blue and the yellow/gold. Really pretty. I love Dinky's new picture. She looks so sweet!

Helen said...

The red really caught my eye too - really nice.

I'd never heard of Icing til I saw it here - fabulous.

Brooke said...

NIXXY - I was really drawn to the red one too!

DEEZ NAILZ - I tried out one of the ones you sent me last night, Pink Pansy - I want to do something better though, so I am re-doing the pics tonight. I don't think it reminds me of any brands of nail polish I already own though.

KITTY - Thanks. They have been some of the better Icing's that I have tried.

MARY - I was pretty impressed with how pigmented the yellow gold one was.

RAI - It probably wans't worth the price - lol!!

NESSA - I just saw her post with those crazy colors! lol There have been a couple of blogs where I will see a color a I just wore or was thinking about wearing.

BROOKLYNSHOEBABE - Do you have a blog?? I hope I didn't miss your nail blog!

BEATRIZ - Thank you and welcome!! No I don't twitter because I don't have anything to twitter about, lol! Sorry. But if I do get with the twitter craze I will def. let you all know about it.

LUCY - lol, you always notice the dinky's pics. I just snapped those this morning before heading out to work.

HELEN - Icing hasn't just been a really great polish. The have some really nice colors, but most tend to be sheers.

Beatriz said...

Brooke said...

BEATRIZ - I'll tell you what I will do. I will put it up on a poll- to twitter or not to twitter, and I will go with the majority vote :) Sound fair?
