I recently had the chance to review the Pure Ice polishes collection for 2013. I have to say, in the past I have used Pure Ice polishes and liked them, but with the newest colors and collections they have really managed to step up their game on the velour polishes, and their new glitter polishes are right up there with the more expensive brands. I haven’t found one that I don’t love. I have about 26 polishes to review, so I’m going to do them a few at a time, so I don;’t overwhelm you lovelies or myself!
This is Material Girl, it’s a dusty pink glitter in a clear base with large pink and gold diamond glitter.
This is Treasure Hunt, a sage green glitter in a clear base with large blue, purple and green glitter. This polish reminds me of an Easter Egg!
This is Stop Flirtin, a lovely light blue glitter with a clear base and medium round silver glitters.
This is Party of Five, a clear based teal glitter with large teal, pink, and purple glitters. I’m not sure I’m in love with this glitter, but the application was smooth and glitter placement wasn’t an issue.
This is Champagne, which to me, the name doesn’t suit the polish at all, but as far as color and coverage go, this is a great one, a combination of blues and greens give this clear based glitter a full coverage in two coats, and the color shift is gorgeous.
French Twist, is probably my second favorite glitter polish, with it’s black base and electric blue glitter, it just screams FUN at me, coverage on this one is a little harder, two coats gives a grey-ish black base, but three coats definitely does the trick, I think a big difference is letting each coat dry completely, otherwise the glitter tries to move around.
This is Five-some and I’m posting two photos of it because it is by far my favorite, but also the hardest one to capture. This is a black base with multi colored micro glitter and I have to say it is absolutely stunning! Two coats of this and sealed with a glossy top coat is so understated and gorgeous that I can’t begin to say enough good things
This beauty is Alter Ego, a brown based polish with gold micro glitter and small silver/grey matte glitters, I am not a fan of brown polish at all, but this is actually very pretty, good glitter coverage and two coats covers completely.
This is Playtime, a gorgeous full coverage glitter made up of gold and copper! The shift in this polish is so sparkly! It’s a clear base, and two coats gives good coverage. My mother saw this after I got it and immediately asked me to do her toes with it, which she never does! I love that unless you look closely you don’t actually see the copper glitter, it just shifts in the light!
All told, these glitter polishes from Pure Ice are by far some of my favorites that have come out this year. Pure Ice has really made a come back as far as colors and “keeping up with the Joneses” plus at $1.97 a bottle, you can pretty much afford the whole collection, rather than one or two.
My next post will feature Pure Ice shimmer polishes, be prepared for some gorgeousness girls!
Pure Ice is available at Wal-Mart, Walgreens and their online store.
