Ice Princess is a discontinued polish from Zoya, its a silvery metallic grey.  This was a very limited release for the Zang Toi New York Fashion Week, the other polishes in the trio were Julie and Gei Gei.  Another trio released at the same time was the Peter Som set which included Jacqueline, Neely and Sharon. Sharon was a slight reformat of Arizona released in the 2012 Beach summer collection.

Of the above colours, Julie, Gei Gei, Neely and Jacqueline were added with Piaf and Blu to make the spring 2013 Lovely Collection..

Ice Princess is not a Trixie dupe either, Trixie is number ZP389 and from the Extreme collection released in 2004, Trixie is a shade or two darker but its going to be extremely hard to tell on camera, its noticeable in person that they are not the same (close though!).

Ice Princess is also numbered oddly as well, the number ZP653 was also used on Blu which was released in the spring collection of 2013. This might explain Zoya changing their number convention for later limited release polishes, as you can see Violet's number is ZP8101R.

So after all that, Ice Princess has a good formula, no running or pooling and she also stamps well, stamping clean up is messy because of all those little sparkly particles, using latex will help with that though.

I had to go to my father in laws internment yesterday, hence no post.
