Notd: Essence Colour to Go ~ Ice, Ice Baby!

Posted on: August 8, 2013

Ice, Ice Baby! From Essence Me & My Ice Cream is one of those great summer colors. It is a baby pink with shimmers, slight shimmers, but shimmers nevertheless of blue and purple. The pictures are showing this as more of a lavender, but it is more pink. I love these kinds of polish in the summer. They look great on my shorter nails but I think this will look good on longer nails as well.

Essence Ice, Ice Baby! is part of the Essence, Me & My Ice Cream series. They may be inexpensive to purchase but I think they are a good value. They come in .33oz size bottles, which is just over the quarter of a size of an OPI bottle. I have yet to finish a bottle of polish so I am appreciating the smaller bottles more and more. Ice, Ice Baby! is a light pink, a bit sheer but I don’t mind a little bit of VNL (Visible Nail Line) during the summer months with this kind of a polish. The formula was easy to work with and even though the bottles are small, the brush is not so teensy tiny **cough,cough** Like OPI minis **cough, cough**. I really like this polish, I like the color and I think it is perfect for summer. Where I live we will get warm weather right up to the end of October. I will get lots of wear from this one. Thank you so much Carla for sending this to me. I wish Essence nail polish was available where I live, so thanks again, if not for you I wouldn’t have some of the best Essence has to offer.

Speaking of where I live, this is the view as I drive to my daughter’s house 28 miles north of me. No place more beautiful, any time of year! Thanks James Richman for your generosity in sharing your pictures. For more pictures of the area I live go to Facebook and type in James Richman, he is a very talented photographer.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

This looks so great on you! It’s such a beautiful colour; I really like the Ice Cream series … also for its cute bottle design. I’m so glad you like this (although I knew, as soon as I saw the bottle at my drugstore). 🙂


Your so right about the bottle, I forgot to mention. They are adorable! Xoxo

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
