The time is near; very near. At 12:01 a.m. on Halloween, these great polishes will be up for sale. These 3 beauts were sent to me for an honest review, and that's what you're about to see. I strongly suggest you buy 'em over at Too Cute-Icle.

Let's get right down to it, shall we?  First up, Green Tea-Ni!
How pretty is that?? If you have holo polishes, you probably know how sometimes the application can be kind of "patchy" on the first coat? None of that with this one. This sucker goes on beautifully! I have three coats here and topcoat. I actually didn't need three coats, but after two I thought, what the hell, let's see if three makes any difference. It didn't. Two coats was plenty to show off this beauty, and I didn't really see much of difference after topcoating.

Hopefully you are clicking on these pics to see them bigger. The holo effect isn't "super" strong, but it's definitely noticeable and has a nice shimmery effect to it as well. I had a pretty good time looking at this one all day yesterday.  I was really hoping for some sunshine the past couple of days so I could get some sunlight on them, but naturally it's been dark and gloomy for days. These were taken in my kitchen like most of my photos and are damn near perfection for color accuracy.

Final thoughts on this one? Really purdy, great formula and application. I was typing like a crazy woman yesterday, too, and no tip wear at all. On to the next!

This gorgeous gold is "Butter Schnapps" (detecting a name theme here).  I'm not normally a fan of true gold colors on me, but I have to say, this is one of the best tones I've seen on my "tan pretty much gone" fingers.  I kind of ran around the house taking pics for this one because I could see a stronger holo with my nekkid eye than I could catch. The kitchen shots show the color more true, but the lighting in my bathroom was better for catching that holo "line" down the center that I love so muchly.

Now, this one is a bit different from that green; it's got more "frost" to it. Sometimes I hate frost polishes because they almost always have that pronounced brush mark nonsense going on. Not so with this one; I don't know if the holo pigment is what corrects that or not, but whatever it is, it works.

Once again, application was super smooth. It dried quickly, and shown here is two coats without topcoat. I'm impressed.  Now for my personal fave of the trio, "Kahlua Sour".
This is what I have on today. I love, love, love a good brown. The fact that it's holographic just makes it yummier. This one is two coats and a topcoat of Seche Vite. Once again, I didn't really notice a difference when I topcoated it. It's another one I'll be staring at all damn day. Luckily it isn't sunny so my driving won't be affected. It sure would have been nice to photograph it in the sun, though, because I'm guessing it's going to be fantabulous!

Pretty great holo effect on this one, and the application again was awesome. None of the patchiness or streaking that I find annoying with some, like Nfu Oh, which is much pricier and always makes me do three coats to make the coverage acceptable. I'm liking that these go on more like a "traditional" polish, two coats and done.

They will be up for sale tonight at there or be square. A 15ml full size is priced at $8.00, and the 7ml mini is only $4.00. Worth every penny.  IMHO you should get your fingers typing to the Too Cute-Icle site and snag yours. Jess is great to deal with and ships fast, and I'm sure you'll be a happy camper once you get them.

And hey, is there anything better than nail mail? I think not. 

All polishes were sent to me for an honest review by the maker.


  1. They are super nice, most of my colours are variants of green and brown, and I lurve these!

    1. I am very impressed with these polishes. I have friends that have gotten some of their others, but these are the first I've tried.
