Today I’ve some some slightly older limited edition Icing swatches of a black glitter collection.

I think these came out last last year, but I only came across them recently and liked what I saw.

The bottles are on the small side at 0.40 oz, but not what I would classify as a true “mini” bottle. I believe the set was only like $8.00 because it was in the sale bin and the only one left.

The formula started off good but then after the first two colors, it deteriorated rapidly. Most were very thick and sticky and kind of glooped on, very messily. Oh well!

Blackened Purple

Blackened Purple is a black with tons of purple micro-glitter. This is an outstanding color! It totally glows, is very pretty and cool looking and I don’t think I have another one quite like it. The formula on this was really great no issues and two coats.

Blackened Blue

Blackened Blue is a black with light blue micro-glitter. This one also applied with no problems and I really like it. This was two coats.

Blackened Gold

Blackened Gold is a black with gold/olive green micro-glitter. This was the one I was the most excited about because of the olive green glitter but it was TERRIBLE as far as formula. It was really thick and gloopy, ick. I had some cuticle drag here as well. This was three coats. Still love the color though!

Blackened Brown

Blackened Brown is a black with copper/brown colored micro-glitter. This formula was even worse than the gold one. It was a downright mess in fact. This was four thick, awful coats, but the color is fabulous 🙂

Blackened Green

Blackened Green is a black with sea-green micro-glitter. It’s dark and sexy, isn’t it? I love this color and luckily the formula wasn’t too bad with this one. This was two coats.

You might still be able to find these in the sale bin at a local Claire’s, which is where the sell Icing polish, if you’re interested!
