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.

Milani Sugar Rush Polish!

I purchased the six new gold label Sugar Rush Polish Collection from Milani which is available now in the permanent display at CVS. Clearly the trend for spring 2014 is glitter top coats and there are plenty to choose from however I did see a difference in the Milani versus the other brands and that would be the color choices.

For the most part I was satisfied with these top coats but there are two which I can live without. The two I could live without are Sugar Cane and Sugar Rush, they look better in the bottle than on the nail and after using both of them. Sugar Cane reminds me of Sinful Colors Tinsel N’ice, and Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat. So far the only brand which has done the fuzzy top coat right is Sally Hansen. Sugar Rush will be good for glitter placement.

Finger Paints Kaleidoscope Collection and New Branding!

While at my local Sally’s Beauty Supply store I spotted the new Finger paints Kaleidoscope Collection, I purchased one of the five flaked polishes and one in the new formula called  Vermillion $ Painting. Finger Paints polish is buy one get one free until the end of February at Sally’s so be sure to stop in and pick up a few new colors!

A few things you will notice is that Finger Paints changed their branding and the brush is slightly wider. I love the new brush its just right, the polish goes on quick and smooth.

The Kaleidoscope Collection has five flaked colored polishes; each has a clear base with a hint of different flakes. The names are: Abstract Attraction, Colorful Dream, Psychedelic Hue, Symmetrical Symphony, and Vivid Reflection. The collection reminds me of Color Clubs covered in Diamonds.

Symmetrical Symphony is over Finger Paints Tough Art To Follow, and has one coat. This polish has lavender, blue and peach flakes.

Vermillion $ Painting is a delicious red orange with micro glitter, I really like this color!

OPI Push and Shove Duet Pack Chrome Polish!

I purchased the OPI Push and Shove Duet Pack from Sally’s Beauty Supply for $8.99. This is a chrome polish that is part of the Gwen Stefani Love. Angel. Music. Baby Collection.

The Polish is full size and is paired with a small bottle of Lay Down that Base, which is a base coat. It will take two coats to get a nice smooth look with this polish, which is a mirror finish and hard to capture witht he camera.

I like this polish however be warned that it will show each flaw on every claw, so be sure to buff before you apply the polish.

Once the polish was completely dry I used OPI Black Satin to stamp on a design.

Mini Color Club & Indie look alike?

While at Bed Bath and Beyond this weekend I spotted a display of polishes from Color Club, this display held about twenty colors which included some basic colors, glitters and three that really caught my eyes! I figured these would be perfect for the Mini Mani Monday blog! What I found where polishes that resembled Indie polishes. The mini bottles retail for $2.99 each.

The three colors I picked up are: For You, Oh Boy!, and Bundle of Joy. I really thought there should be a pink Indie look alike in this display but did not locate one or a spot for it.

Please excuse the nubs, my pointer finger decided to have a breakdown this week.

Let’s start with my favorite For You, yes that name is correct it is like Color Club made this color for me! It is a nice white polish with small hex glitter in red, teal, light and dark purple with a mix of larger hex glitter in light purple, yellow and red, for those of you that follow the blog you know how much I LOVE glitter and the yellow really made me smile! This swatch has three coats.

I’m not going to lie I was really disappointed with Bundle of Joy, it was more like Disastrous Monday, I tried the polish two times, both with a base coat but the polish is thick and goopy and I hate that so much! The color of the polish is much like Color Clubs Blue Ming. The glitter found in this polish is small and medium hex glitter in a gray-silver and black, with a larger hex glitter in black. This swatch has two coats.

Oh Boy is a nice blue, the polish is thick but not hard to work with, this has small and medium hex glitter in a gray-silver and black, then larger hex glitter in black. This swatch has two coats.

Wet n Wild Beauty Benefits Nail Polish

Last weekend I ran into my local Dollar Store to pick up some Reynolds Wrappers, I use these under my paper towel when painting my nails; they also come in handy with glitter removal and placing polish on it for nail art. While at the Dollar Store I spotted a bin of Wet n Wild Beauty Benefits nail polish!

I purchased seven bottles, three of which are jellies; all of the polishes have glitter in them either in the form of micro or small. There is one thing which threw me off and that was that none of the polishes have a name, so with my swatches I gave them a name.

This polish has a small brush, goes on quick and dries faster than expected!

Purple Passion-fools you with the look of the bottle but this polish is indeed a jelly!

Marmalade-a jelly that is orange and has tons of glitter.

Cream Orange-also a jelly very much like Marmalade however…..it is creamier jelly and has less glitter.

Marmalade and Cream Orange look very similar on the nail but different in the bottle here is a side by side with Marmalade on the left and Cream Orange on the right.

Dolphin-this is a fun gray which sparkles from micro glitter, it reminds me of dolphins swimming in the Gulf. dolphin

Seas Salt-is a grayish green with micro glitter.

Loyal Blue-very dark blue with micro glitter.
