I probably paint my nails most in the Spring & Summer – bright clothes and gorgeous weather always inspired me to change things up, frequently. So naturally, joining Pure ICE for a morning chatting about polish, summer nail trends, and their brand new Butterfly Effects with Shimmer-Wing collection was the perfect way to spend my first day of proper sunny weather in the city.
I’m an ardent Pure ICE fan – available at Walmart for only $1.97 a bottle, and keeping up with the best of them in terms of quality, variety, and color payoff – it’s definitely one of the best drugstore variety polishes out there (I actually prefer them to the handful of essie polishes I’ve tried). The Butterfly Effects w. Shimmer-Wing collection features three new shimmery polishes – Rose, Iris, and Jasmine. Rose is a sheer pearlescent pink, with shimmering shades of lavender, powder blue and sunset orange; Irish is a soft lavender opal, with hints of blue, emerald, and pearl; and Jasmine is a light green with blue and gold shimmers.
I got to play with them myself, and I have to say you know how most glitter/shimmer top coats are pretty much interchangeable (within reason)? Well, these aren’t. They’re all really unique, and they all made the same purple polish base that I used look completely different. They don’t clump or go on too thick to dry, it’s a very smooth, clean, but very effective formulation. Definitely worth owning the entire collection (after all it’s only three – and you’ll love ’em!).
Another exciting addition to the Pure ICE lineup is their temporary tattoos! They can be applied to skin or nail, and I am absolutely in love with these. Once applied they don’t have that over-shiney look that temporary tattoos tend to have. And they come off with a little baby oil and elbow grease.
