Speckled Ice Cream by Icing

Nothing To Disclose I know it's been awhile since you've seen any Icing or swatches here on Nail A College Drop Out so I figured why not today?

Last Monday I arrived at the conclusion that my weekend was too short took a mental health day from work and spent the afternoon with Mr. Nail A College Drop Out at the mall. We had dinner, we laughed, he bought me nail polish. All in all, not a bad day right? Now I'm getting beside the point. Anyway, we stopped in Icing and I found their three new speckled lacquers!

L-R Deliciously Scrumptious, Mint Choco Chip, Choco Chip

Let's start with Deliciously Scrumptious. In general, I'm not a fan of pink polishes so this one was an impulse buy. Opaque in two coats, smooth formula. I just don't like that it's pink.

Next up, Mint Choco Chip! Again opaque in two coats and the formula was easy to work with.
If you're curious as to how Mint Choco Chip compares to Illamasqua Mottle, here's a quick side by side bottle shot.

Icing Mint Choco Chip and Illamasqua Mottle
Both are green speckle polishes, yes. But, Mint Choco Chip is more blue based and Illamasqua Mottle leans more yellow.

Lastly, we have my favorite of the group, Choco Chip. Although this lacquer is named Choco Chip, it reminds me of melted cookies & cream. And that's great because I love cookies & cream, yet sad because I hate melted ice cream. Above is two coats and has the same favorable formula as the previous lacquers.

Okay confession time, I didn't notice the smudges on my nail until after this photo was uploaded. Forgive me?

I'm pretty sure if I didn't have easy access to an Icing my stash of nail polish wouldn't be so large.

Will you be stalking your Icing for these guys?
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
