Icing Shredded Nail Polish

I finally got my hands on "Shredded", a black glitter (I use "glitter" loosely here-it's not shiny).  The black pieces are irregular and shard-like and I love them.  I knew I had to do a black and white sandwich with this!

I used 2 layers of Essie "Instant Hot" as the base, 1 layer of "Shredded", and then I topped it off with one layer of Essie "Allure" to sandwich everything in.  The result was a very Cookies & Cream type effect:


 Yeah..all of these kinda look the same...but I couldn't narrow it down, so instead I will drown you in photos of different hand angles :D

And for reference,  here's what "Shredded" looked like before I topped her with Essie "Allure":

Do you own "Shredded"?  I really love Icing polishes and wish I had a store closer to me!  Are there any other Icing colors that I need to own?  My sister just gave me "After Party" and I can't wait to use that either!

    1. Thanks Candice! (PS, when I was pregnant with my last child, I had "Candice" on my list of girl names. Alas, it was not meant to be- I only make boys apparently ;)

  3. Oooooh!!! SO SQUISHY! I got Shredded in a swap and haven't used it yet but you've given me an idea! I love black&white and this is an awesome alternative to the popular topcoats and glitter polishes that all look so similar. <3

  11. This looks almost exactly like a Cookies 'n Cream chocolate bar - yum! This is such a crazy fun combo; I'm betting you must have had a ton of people asking about it!

  12. Love that combo. It actually reminds me of a table I used to see all the time. There were colored shards of glass embedded in the piece of white stone.

  13. I've had this since it came out and bought two bottles. Oddly enough I only used it once.
