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.
Pick up your polish, temporary tattoos, and the Butterfly Effects collection this month, exclusively at Walmart!
i have absolutely fallen in love with one of your nail polish colors. However, to my dismay your company does not manufacturer this particular color anymore. I would like to purchase more of the color but am unable to find it any where. My question is why did your company stop manufacturing the “butterfly kisses” Shimmering wings Jasmine color. This nail polish is one of my favorite colors from your company. Slightly disappointed that your company has decided that one of the biggest sellers should not be manufactured anymore.
