Icing Tiger's Blood

I'm in a glitter mood, so today I have Icing Tiger's Blood, a coral jelly base packed with gold and coral glitter. It's inspired by actor Charlie Sheen's infamous melt down from last year. It happens to be a dead on dupe of Cult Nails Captivated.

I didn't feel like wearing it on its own, so I layered it over ULTA Orange You Glad It's Summer. It's such a pretty glitter! I love staring at it in the bottle and it's just as great on. I really love it over the orange creme. My pictures aren't a 100% color accurate but close. It's more vibrant and more coral in person. 


It was thick, but I had no problems with application. It was surprisingly easy to work with. Due to the thick jelly base, it took a while to fully dry. I used two coats of it and two coats of top coat. Unfortunately my brush is broken off from the cap, but Icing polishes are final sale so I'm stuck with it. Thankfully it didn't cause problems, but I'll fix it with some super glue.

This is a bit blurry, but I like it.

In the shade:

I really love Tiger's Blood! It's such a great polish and at $4.50, you can't beat the price. As far as I know, it can still be found at Icing, so if you weren't able to get your hands on Captivated, it's a great option.
