We Care Icon nail polish in Nr. 21 Magic Sapphire

I love me some sapphire blue nail polishes! :) Although China Glaze Eyes Like Sapphires is my current number one, I like this one a lot too. Actually it looks almost like OPI DS Fantasy, Icon's being a tiny bit lighter and brighter with no holo effect. I must admit, I prefer Magic Sapphire over Fantasy! :)

We Care Icon is a new Finnish brand of ecological (I am quite skeptical about this claim though) makeup available in Finland only.

Sunshine, flash


5 ml, exp. date: 24 months after opening, made in France.

States "Formaldehyde free" on the sticker. Seems to be 3 Big free. IMO it's strange they didn't mention "toluene and dibutyl phtalate free"... :/ It might be obvious though... if I remember correctly those two are banned in EU. What about Formaldehyde resin then? Hmmm... Never mind. lol

Colour: Oh my, I've just noticed the name. And let me tell you - it's magic sapphire indeed! :) Shimmery dark navy-royal blue.

Finish: frost-shimmer (btw, very smooth shimmer).

Application: smooth application, 2 coats (or even 1 would do!) are enough for a full coverage.

Retail price: 5,9 EUR.

Pros: gorgeous dark blue, good coverage (1-2 coats!), pretty bottle, big 3 free, nice brush.
Cons: strong smell, short brush (what am I supposed to do when I'll have less than 2,5 ml? such a waste!), available in Finland only, quite expensive for 5 ml (18 EUR for the size of OPI?! Are you kidding me?)!

PS Vampy version of China Glaze Eyes Like Sapphires. Very mysterious. Magic indeed. lol


  1. Yep, exactly my expression when I see this beauty! :) and... "my precious"!.. lol

  2. This nail polish looks sooo good!
