Pure Ice New Hue Collection

Pure Ice™ sent me the New Hue Collection which is eight new shades, that includes three color tints with glitter, and a matte top coat, this collection is sure to add a little bit of grit, and lots of glam to your nail collection.

The collection has eight shades: Doll Face – a soft crème peach, Flawless – a frosted light gold with a metallic finish, Poppin’ Bottles – silver pearl with silver hex glitter and a gold iridescent finish, What’s the Splatter clear with white and black hex glitter, Blue Hue – blue glitter hint, Pure Haze – purple glitter hint, Rosy Glow – pink glitter hint, Frost Finish – mattifying top coat.

I will do a separate blog with the three color tints and matte top coat.

This collection can be purchased at Walmart for $1.97 per bottle.

I already use Black Out and other Pure Ice shades for stamping so it is nice to add Flawless to the can stamp list.

Each swatch has two coats, the formula Doll Face was much better than I anticipated, however this isn’t my favorite shade of the collection. Flawless is just okay, I’m a little over frosted metallics, but if you are looking for one at an affordable price then this shade is for you.

My favorite is Poppin Bottles, this is a must purchase shade. I absolutely love this shade for several reasons: it’s so easy to apply, has glitter, sparkles like a glass of champagne, it is a fantastic silver pearl with a gold iridescent finish, and it nice to stamp on.

When I receive product to review it is typically test worn, these polishes held up to my test of a daily morning workout, daily office environment, and dish duty at home. I wore Poppin Bottles for five days and never received a chip.

Sinful Colors Spring 2015 Love Sprinkles and Shamrockin!

Spotted at Walgreens two new displays by Sinful Colors, Flirt With Hearts and Kiss Me I’m Stylish! Both of these displays only have one new shade from previous years, and they are both a glitter top coat. In the new larger end cap display there were several new shades, I purchased a few of the new shades along with the two seasonal top coats.

In the Flirt With Hearts display there is a top coat called Love Sprinkles, this is a clear based top coat with a mix of small and medium white and light pink hex glitter and larger white hearts.

In the Kiss Me I’m Stylish display you will find green ocean, Innocent, Snow Me White, Mint Apple, All About You, Happy Ending, Pisctachio, and the new top coat Shamrockin. Shamrockin is a clear base with small and medium hex glitter in white and light green with larger white flowers.

A few ransom new shades on the end cap are Copper Pot, Rose Dust, and Beaches and Cream. I purchased all of these, Beaches and Creams is a pale yellow shade that is just a terrible polish, it is goopy and it streaks with lumps, it should be pulled from the shelves!

I would recommend purchasing all four of the below swatches.

Love Sprinkles-goes on thick and you’ll need to dig for hearts.

Shamrockin- goes on thick and you’ll need to dig for the flowers, I’m still confused why they aren’t shamrocks.

Copper Pot- a nice copper shade with shimmer, this is two coats.

Rose Dust- a light purple with shimmer, this is a thick polish and a one coat completes the look.
