Admittedly, I am not as addicted to Stickles as many people out there are. I only find needing a few of the colors. I bought Icicle with the hope that I would have a nice basic white color to add to my collection. At the time, of course, the Stickle experts weren't around to answer such color questions. Unfortunately, this one seems to be translucent and filled with green and pink sparkles. As a result it only suits certain LO's... it clashes badly with others. So, I have since realized that what I really wanted was the basic Frosted Lace (white sparkling and opaque). I have hardly any use for this color. However I do think that for anyone else who wants to add to a large collection, it does add variety and could be useful in the right situation.
Edit: I apparently have found several LO's to use this on now... it works great with pinks and pastels and greens of course. It has a thicker tip (think the glitter pieces are a bit larger in this color than some others) and so it doesn't make for as precise placement as some of the other colors, but it is a great choice for a smear to cover technique (my favorite use for it). It adds lots of bling that way.

By writing this, I am hoping to help describe the differences between Stickles that look just white online. This color RAWKS! Earlier, I wrote a review stating that Crystal (w/ its subtle blue/green/pink cool-toned flecks) was possibly my fave Stickles shade. Well THIS is now quite possibly ties Crystal as my favorite! This has AWESOME color flecks in it, gold is the color that I most notice but there’s also various other colors. The glitter particles are larger with this than w/ other Stickles so the bottle opening is bigger & the product comes out thicker. Icicle gives a brilliant effect on anything you put it on… if you cover a color with it, you get gold & multi-colored sparkles w/ the original color showing through too. I have already used up a bottle of this and have a 2nd bottle in my wish list – I adore Icicle!

If you are new to stickles or if you just want to have one stickles in your stash (although I don't know why you would just want to have one), this is a great one. It is a clear color with silver and neutral glitter than you can incorporate in just about any page. I love the 3-d drying of the stickles although you should set your product aside for at least 15-30 minutes to ensure that it dries completely. Once dried, it is quite hard. If you stick your finger in it before it is dried, you will have glitter all over your hands, face, hair! :) I love these things and can't get enough of them. When I can't decide what else a page needs, this is one of the first things I reach for.

I had never heard of Stickles, never used Stickles, and couldn't figure out what all my friends on the VCW thread where talking about...all I knew was EVERYONE was always waiting for Stickles to dry! Then, my friend Elizabeth sent me some for Christmas. I was immediately hooked and can't get enough of them. Collecting all the colors is now a goal of mine!
Stickles just add so much to a lo or on cards. I made my Christmas cards this past year and used Stickles...all my friends and family oohed and ahhhed over the "bling" on my cards.
WARNING! They are addictive!

I honestly have to say, I LOVE these little bottles of glittery glue!! What I like most about this product besides the product in the bottle is that I love the tip of the bottle and how thin of a line I can get and how easy it is to work with and guided. The product comes out for the most part easy and smooth, I have had a few clog up on me, but is easily fixed and flowing again. It is a inexpensive way to way a lot of pazzaz to anything you are working on. I also like that is comes in a wide range of colors! I would give this product 10 stars if I could!! :O)

Stickles are a great, easy way to have glitter accents on your page. It's a glitter glue so you don't have to worry about getting glitter everywhere as your using it. It comes in a nifty little squeeze bottle with a long nozzle so you can place it exactly where you want. Depending on how much you use, it can take a while to dry, but you can run a quick heat gun over it and it will dry pretty quickly. You can mix the colours together for a rainbow look as well. Lots of fun if you want to try 'easy glitter'.
Love, Love this color of Stickles as it does resemble Iciles when applied, I am currently using on punched snowflakes and the effect is amazingly beautiful! Really gives that extra punch to the snowflakes and makes them sparkle and shine!
Definitely need to get more as this is one of my most often used products, so easy to use and instead of 2 products (glitter and glue) Stickles is an all in one product you just squeeze where you need it!!!! Would definitely recommend to everybody and anybody!!!!
Hello stickles, goodbye loose glitter! This product is heaven sent. It adds a nice accent to any page. Make embellishments pop, or just draw something on your page. My favorite is adding sparkles to my snowflakes. Stickles comes in many different colors. I have 10 myself and I believe my local scrapbook store has near around 50. They are a must for anyone wanting to just jazz it up a little.
LOVE any kind of Stickles! They are PERFECT for the quick dress-up of any layout! It just adds the perfect amount of shine and glitz. I have just about every color and I use them CONSTANTLY on just about every layout or project I create! I think these are a necessity, at least in your basic colors. They aren't over-girly and the Distress line is PERFECT for a masculine layout!
