Courtesy of the bf, on Tuesday night we went to the mall for some browsing (as I decided to take Wednesday off to spend time with Squirt for March break). We happened to pick a place to eat that was near Icing (the only store in this city), so of course I went in for a quick look.
If you are familiar with Icing sale, they normally have 5 for $10 clearance for items under CAD17 orginally or CAD5 for anything over CAD17. It’s not as good as Claire’s 10 for $10 (for items under CAD11.50), especially with nail polish, but Icing does have some better quality accessories.
There were about 5-6 polish colours in the 5 for $10 section, but I only picked 2: Manic Monday and Putty Concrete. I figured I got enough bright colours from Claire’s, so I should get something different this time 🙂
And the LE mini pack! I never saw these on clearance before, and there were 3 combos this time, CAD5 each (org. CAD18, I think). I picked the blacks with coloured glitters – from L-R: purple, blue, teal, orange and gold glitters in black base. No specific names, as with all their mini packs. I read on nail blogs that these are substitues to the Milani halloween blacks, so I’m excited to be able to get them for cheap.
For accessories, CAD2 each, I picked up:
– a silver necklace with chunky circles all connected somehow
-a glossy pair of earrings which are white but reflect the flash somehow to look brown in the pic
– a flowery patterned name card case, and
– 2 rings.
I’m not big on rings, just because I can hardly find ones that fit my fingers 🙂 The smallest ring size at Claire’s and Icing (similar to everywhere else) is 6, and that would fit my index finger or thumb, lol. So the only chance I buy a ring there is when it looks good on my index finger, or it is adjustable.
The one on my thumb is dark grey, square and reflective, could pair up with a LBD.
The one that says “Love” is gold-like, double-finger ring (i.e. it stretches over the top of 2 fingers and has 2 ring circles instead of 1 as regular rings). I think F21 is known for having this kind of rings, but I don’t have a store here, so I make due with an Icing ring 🙂
Do you have more Icing stores than Claire’s where you live? I wish they open more, as you know I love checking out their clearance sale. And they do have some good polish colours too 🙂 Have a nice day, ladies!
