Hi guys! Another quick post for today...then I'm off for yummy BBQ food mmm. I was shopping today and stopped by the store Icing to look for the polishes they have that are named after funny Charlie Sheen sayings (I found a couple of those woohoo). While I was searching for the Charlie Sheen polishes a nail polish duo caught my eye. There was half of it that was blue and green and glittery and looked a heck of a lot like one of my favorite polishes ever, Deborah Lippmann Across The Universe. I bought the duo and got home to do a quick side by side.
The Icing Duo polishes are called Force of Love and Magnetic Attraction. Force of Love is the one that looks dupey to Across The Universe. Once getting them on they are not dupes, but they are close enough that it could kill the lemming for some people. The main difference is the amount of small silver glitter in the Icing polish, other than that not much is different looks wise. The formula on Across The Universe is about a zillion times better but I think a drop or 2 of thinner would help the Icing polish out in that department.
I used 2 coats of each polish over Mac Spirit Of Truth which is the dark navy blue that came out with Mac's Wonder Woman collection.
This is what the Icing duo looks like, it retails for $7.50 but much like Claire's, Icing always has their polish buy 1 get 1 50% off so I didn't actually pay $7.50 for it. The bottle is pretty small but the other glitter polish it comes with is pretty also! As far as I know you can only buy these polishes in store, I don't know anywhere online that sells them!
