Ice box polish

Tuesday, 8 September 2015

I received three Ice Box colours to review; Mermaids are Real (a shimmery turquoise), Bought a Yacht (a bright light blue) and The Royal navy (a dark shimmery navy blue). I have to start by saying that I’m a nudes and pink nail polish kind of girl and would never normally even try blue shades.
The bottles are cute and little, I can imagine that they would be convenient to take with on holiday. The handles are covered in a smooth rubbery material which makes them easy to grip but unfortunately the brush is round and thick which makes it difficult to apply.
The polish itself applies very very thinly and I found I had to 3 or 4 layers to get an opaque colour. It also takes long to dry so I had to wait ages between applying layers.
My last disappointment with this polish was how short it lasted. I usually get away with at least 3 days before my polish starts to chip but this was chipped after just a day.
All in all, although the colours are fun for summer I can’t say I’d use this again and won’t be recommending it to any of my friends.
