Necessary Evil Polish - Ice Review | Swatch My Stash


Y'all, I'm doing so good going through all of the polishes I have swatched and things so soon, it'll only be more recent swatches of my actual stash (we're on four drawers in my Helmer). This also means I have to get into swatching mood here soon because....yikes. Also, I redid my office so it's more efficient (but that means I found a ton of things that I want to spruce it up! That's my update, here's a polish to show you!



Ice is an ice blue with pink shimmer, blue microflakes and UCC flakes that shift from pink to gold to green.



Brush macro.


Bottle macro.


Glossy nail macro.


I love the shimmer in this, it has this lit from within glow about it! Such a gorgeous polish to wear. There are some slight brush strokes but only if you really look for them.


On the sides, it looks almost purple...that's from the pink shimmer. This is definitely an ice blue polish.


Matte nail macro.


Like with most polish with flakes, a matte top coat really makes them pop. Some of the shimmer does disappear, sadly.


Formula: Good, slight brush strokes.
Coats for Opacity: Two coats.
Ease of Dry: Quick dry.
Texture: None noted.
Finish: Shine.
Removal: Normal removal, no issues noted.

As always, let me know what you thought of this polish in the comments!
