UK Indies - Iconic Effect Winter Polishes

Greetings All!

The clearing of the vault continues, today with some Wintry polishes from Iconic Effect. These are definitely 'Winter' and not 'Christmas', so it's fine to post them in January!

First is Longest Night, which has thankfully been and gone. While I am more of a night person, sometimes in Winter it feels like you can blink and miss the daylight! Plus I hate having to get up when it's still dark - it shouldn't be allowed!

This is 2 coats of Longest Night over black.

I love the teeny flecks of iridescence, and it's rather fitting for the name of the polish, but the glitter bunny in me wants more sparkle. The glitter looks good in these pictures, but from arm's length it did look a bit like just black polish, and I need more glitter than that! It's a very nice subtle polish though. I'm just not known for my subtlety!

The Big Freeze, 2 coats over white.

Cold, glittery and gorgeous! This is a brilliant Winter polish. It reminds me a little of DDP Blueberries a la Mode, but with blue instead of purple. It's cool and it's fresh, and very easy to wear because the blue adds a lot of colour to the pale base, so I think you could get away with this one even if you don't like a white based polish.
