Swatch Day - Pure Ice Pink Ice

Hey all! Today I was planning on a crackle experiment but I still feel gross and therefore lazy and so you get a swatch day instead. I promise I will bring you crackle fun on Friday. And puppies.

This is Pure Ice brand Pink Ice. It's a super shimmery sheer baby pink that I normally wouldn't have picked up. The only reason I did was because I was looking for something light and dare I say girly for a change. Wanna see? Yeah ya do.




Bonus since I feel bad for the unexpected swatch day, my cat giving me the disapproving glare. He gives me that mental facepalm look a lot, I'm pretty sure he's embarrassed of me.

As you can see Pink Ice is pretty sheer, the above pics are four coats with base and top coat. (I just typed "four cats", my subconscious is turning me into a crazy cat lady!) I probably could have stopped at three coats but I got curious. There was still a tiny bit of visible nail line but it wasn't noticeable in person after the third coat. The formula was good with no streaking or pulling and a good consistency for such a sheer polish. This sucker is packed with so much shimmer you don't even know, I had glitter particles all around my fingers that would just NOT go away. Even after clean up you can still see them in the pics. If you are careful while painting I'm sure you wouldn't have this problem, I however am a very messy painter and on top of that I had hiccups halfway through my camera hand. My husband thought it was hysterical to watch me try to paint my nails with hiccups. I thought it was hysterical to leave the sugar out of his coffee the next morning. Yeah that's right, payback is a passive aggressive bitch in the form of a sluggish morning. Anyway, at just under $2 a bottle at Walmart I can't help myself when it comes to the Pure Ice polishes and I'm not often disappointed. These people know their small glitter and shimmer. So if you like soft pinks and lots of sparkle for a good price, this polish is for you!

I just realized I don't own a single creme by Pure Ice so I can't say anything about those. How about you guys, any Pure Ice cremes you just love?

  5. Very soft and sweet--I like it! Sometimes I need a little "refresher" colour like that too, and this one is lovely.

    Hehe, I like your payback-ey style ^_^

    1. Thank you! I have been wondering lately what it looks like layered since it's so sheer on first coat.
