Icing Bird of Paradise

 I went to the grand opening of the Ulta 5 minutes from me today! I'm so psyched to have an Ulta down the street from me. It could be dangerous though. They were handing out gift certificates and free goody bags. I sadly only got the $5 gift card, some people got $50 and $100 ones. Oh well! I picked up 2 polishes from the OPI fall collection, and one from Butter London. I met up with Kari from Once Bitten while I was there. It was fun, but it started to get really hot in there with all the people.

Today, I have for you an Icing polish I got recently. I like the few Icing polishes I have. I don't really like going in the store. It's one of those places they kind of hound you about buying stuff. They immediately hand you a basket, and I instantly feel obligated to buy something. I'm too nice. I did find this pretty there, I just wish it wasn't so sheer!

Bird of Paradise
This took 5 coats! :-/

This is 2 coats over Zoya Keiko

Bird of Paradise is a sheer red-violet with golden iridescent glitter.

I so wish this wasn't so sheer, because I absolutely love this color. I was hoping this was going to be a purple version of Cult Nails Captivated. It sadly isn't, Captivated is a 2-3 coater to get full pigmentation, and this one isn't even worth layering up the 5 coats to get even get slight pigmentation. It does look very pretty layered. This is definitely one of the prettiest layering glitters I own. I love the golden iridescent glitter!

Happy Friday!

  7. I like Bird of Paradise as an overlay; it's very pretty.

    That's great you had a good time at the Ulta. I'll have to remember to stop in when I visit the Mall of Millenia.

  11. this looks like it is just BEGGING to be layered over zoya faye/ opi rally pretty pink. now i must brave going inside my local icing to hunt up this pretty! btw, i used to be supremely irritated that the girls at my icing would just ignore me completely (and i do mean completely) until i made my way to the register, but this basket handing sounds even worse!

    What butter LONDON color did you buy? I'm trying to get my hands on No More Waity, Katie. Having an Ulta near you will definitely be a problem. Take my word for it! I always find an excuse to stop in there. Then, I wander through the nail polish section and come out with at least one new polish.
