Icing’s Sipping On Bubbly; Cheers With Champagne

Icing is a sister store to Claire’s. There used to be another sister store called ‘Topkapi’. I managed one of those stores, way back. For a very short time. It was terrible. They didn’t have makeup or polish back then. It was terrible.

What’s not terrible is checking out Icing for their funky nail polishes. It is always a delight to find something new. This is a rather new addition for me…

‘Sipping On Bubbly’ is a cute name for a very unique polish. This one has a lot going on…

Lots of micro glitter. I see iridescent, gold and bar glitter that flashes from magenta to orange then to a sparkly iridescent look. I meant it when I said it was complex!

On the nail, it isn’t as fantastic as it is to look at in the bottle…I have two coats over bare nails. No top coat here and surprisingly, this polish was not difficult to remove. I did experiment with different base coat colors. And, I found some shades did better than others. However, I decided to go naked…

I didn’t work on trying to get a lot of the bar glitter out. I just applied like I would any other polish. So, this is a rather demure glitter manicure. I can see how the name reference to champagne is used; the micro glitter looks just like a pale bubbly drink.

Even though it isn’t all that flashy…

It does have a different look. Maybe I don’t need to always wear ‘out there’ colors. Maybe a sophisticated ‘Sipping On Bubbly’ fits the bill once in a while.

I like champagne, most of the time. Do you like it? How about Icing’s ‘Sipping On Bubbly’? Do you like that better?
