Icing Vampire's Blood

Here's a quick swatch of a terrible failure.  I had such high hopes for Icing Vampire's Blood since I love dark bases with colored glitter.

However, this polish was a mess.  It shrunk on the nail, was gloopy even after 3 coats, and ate 2 coats of top coat.  Ugh. 

Taking this off was also a major pain.  It doesn't look it, but the glitter inside the base is rough and literally attaches itself to the nail.  For something that doesn't even look like a glitter, it certainly acts like one.

I think I may gift this to someone who will give this a better home.  Any takers??


  1. Oh sad to hear that, it's on my want list, I thought it looked so pretty in the bottle. If you want to gift it to me I'd take it lol

  2. I'm down for a one-time swap. Email me if you're interested; I'd be happy to give this to you.

  3. I've never tried their polishes, I know the feeling of being disappointed by a polish, I hate it.

  4. This does look nice on you though! It reminds me of a more subtle China Glaze Mummy May I. I HATE shrinkage more than anything.

  5. I got this polish BECAUSE I was lemming Mummy May I. I hope the CG is better than this.
