Ice Dream is a combination of small silver glitter and larger ice blue glitter suspended in a clear base. By that description I would think Ice Dream would be similar to NYC Starry Silver (a beloved glitter in my collection) but while the two have a similar glitter make up they provide entirely different looks.
The formula is fantastic. The glitter is dense but not so dense it can’t be used as a top coat. I’ve used this in two manicures; one where I used three coats of Ice Dream and one where I used one coat of Ice Dream over butter LONDON Royal Navy. While I liked both manicures (Ice Dream looks great on its own) I have to say I really adore the manicure where I used the glitter over a deep blue. It gave the manicure an icy look which I think is the point, lol.
I definitely see Ice Dream being part of a snow day manicure in the future!
