Blast From the Past: Icing Roger That

Hello Lacquerheads!  Today I have for you another Blast From The Past post, from the early days of my blog.  I am still in love with this color, what do you think???

The moment I started applying this polish I knew it was a winner.  Roger That  is a polish by Icing, the accessories store in the mall, similar to Claire's.  Before I got back into nail polish I would not be caught dead in Icing or Claire's.  I still am a little uncomfortable shopping at Claire's, but I don't feel the same anxiety shopping at Icing.  Funny story, the first time I went into Claire's for nail polish, I bought every bottle of Magic that they had, since I had heard such good things about it.  The sales lady thought I was nuts.  Unfortunately, every time I have returned, the same lady is working!

Roger That! is a gorgeous teal green glass flecked jelly.  As many others have reported, the application was PERFECTION...  this was ZERO cleanup.  None!  The formula was neither thick nor runny, the brush was perfect for my narrow fingers, and dried beautifully.

I used two coats of polish plus one coat of Nails Inc Kensington Top coat.  For those of you still not comfortable with VNL, I believe a third coat would have been enough.  The picture above was taken in direct sunlight to show the VNL.

I wore this for two days with no chips and very minimal tip wear, and that probably only occurred due to the fact that I was typing away on my laptop a few minutes later... I have no patience!

I purchased this polish a few months ago at Icing, so you might still be able to find it.  If you do, I highly recommend it.  I think it was $4.50, and of course there is the never ending buy one get one 50% off sale.  Which really bugs me because it never changes.

Do you like polishes from Icing?  My only frustration (other than the "sale") is that the store is not in as many malls as it used to be, and I have to go out of my way to visit a store.
