Kings Reign!

My L.A. Kings have won the Stanley Cup!! I'm so freaking happy and proud of my boys! The game was on Monday night. I celebrated the win with my family. It was crazy in our house with the screaming. My dad's been a fan for about 30 years, so he's been waiting a long time for this. When the season started I would say things along the lines of "imagine if the Kings win the Stanley Cup" or "they're going to win the cup." That was just said in fun and faith. My dad would say "oh my god, that would be so sweet." And hey, it really happened! No one really expected them to come this far, they were doubted a lot, so I'm really happy for them. Plus, it's the first cup in Kings history which makes it even more special.

Sorry about rambling! I'm just excited. Anyways, In my haul I hinted at what polish I would be wearing if the Kings won: Icing Pre Game. I layered it over my current Kings mani. I wanted to post this yesterday, but I was at a water park all day so I had no time. Anyways, here it is!

It's a glitter, and while it doesn't have a name that is related to a victory, the color is festive and reminds me of a party, so it's extremely appropriate. It's a mixture of gold, red, green, blue, pinky purple, and silver glass flecks in a clear base. It's a more intense and vibrant version of Icing After Party. In my opinion, the names don't match the polishes. Icing After Party has softer, muted colors and to me, that doesn't really represent an after party, but Pre Game's colors do.

The formula is good. I made sure to get enough flecks on my brush, so coverage wasn't a problem. I only had to use one coat. It's a bit thick and the drying time was a bit slow, but it doesn't bother me.

Here's a shade picture to get a better look at all of the colors!

I really love this polish! It sums up perfectly how I feel about the Kings winning. It's perfect for any celebratory moment!


  1. My husband watches TSN every morning so Tuesday morning I heard that the Kings won and I thought of you!! :) I'm happy that it makes you so happy, not being a fan of hockey myself.

    What a great mani to show support of your team. :)
