Sugarpill The Inventor Nail Polish
Sugarpill Ice Angel Nail Polish ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blend of snow white flecks in varying sizes.” It’s flecks of multi-sized white pieces suspended in a clear base, and it does look a lot like snow applied. It was designed to be layered over The Inventory or used alone, and it actually applied a lot better than I expected–the “snow” really disperses evenly across the nail without getting too many large pieces in one area or bald spots. A single coat is shown on my thumb nail, and the effect is noticeable, even, and pretty much true-to-description. I also tried it layered in various ways over the dark gray coordinating shade–kind of in the theme of a blizzard, a flurry, and a sprinkling of snow. It actually seemed smoother than the glitter in The Inventory and has a more noticeable shine (without a top coat). I don’t have any dupes to share with you, but I’m sure there are some out there! Sugarpill’s polish formula lasts seven days on me with minor tip wear but no chipping.
Sugarpill The Inventor Nail Polish ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “pinch of silver glitter mixed in a dark steel gray base.” It’s a dark gray with subtle, cooler undertones and what looks like muted, gold micro-glitter and some silver glitter. It was fully opaque after two coats of polish, and the consistency was a little thicker but didn’t pool along the edges so it was manageable. It had a moderate dry down time, and it dried down to a slight shine, but I would recommend a top coat for this one. I’d also say to opt for a thicker top coat, as the micro-glitter creates a sense of texture on the nail. Sugarpill’s polish formula lasts seven days on me with minor tip wear but no chipping. Zoya Yuna (P, $9.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). China Glaze Stone Cold (LE, $7.50) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Grey Friday (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, less glossy (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
