NYX Ice Glitter (209) Salon Formula Nail Polish

NYX Ice Glitter (209) Salon Formula Nail Polish ($4.00 for 0.52 fl. oz.) is a holographic glitter polish with small particle glitter and larger hexagonal particles all suspended in a clear base. It looks almost silver, but then the particles give off a rainbow reflection. I wish the photos turned out better, because it’s so stunning in person–it dazzles and shimmers and shines. The effect is gorgeous!

This is a newly released formula by NYX, and if you have any Deborah Lippmann polishes, the bottle is going to seem more than familiar. The major difference is the cap; NYX has a glossy black cap, while Deborah Lippmann has a rubberized cap (so it has a matte black finish), and the latter is easier to hold. I tested out NYX’s formula this past week using two different shades (a shimmer on one hand, this glittery shade on the other), and I didn’t have any wear issues, just minor tip wear after seven days.

Ice Glitter has a thin consistency, which is different than a lot of other glitters like this one, because they tend to have thicker, almost gel-like bases, which often assist in giving the glitter better distribution on the nail. I felt like a thicker base would have helped pull the glitter more evenly, but I still felt like the distribution was decent overall with the thinner consistency. The thinner quality makes it easier to layer without building up too much thickness on the actual nail. As you’d expect, removal is no picnic, and you’ll want to give the remover some time to soak and break down the polish before actually pulling the polish off.

P.S. — Please forgive the random red glitters; this was the seventh or eighth glitter polish I swatched for photos.
