I recently received the Pure Ice New Year New Hue Collection. I had a few pure ice in my collection prior to this but had only wore one so I went into this collection not knowing what to expect. I have to say I am very impressed. I didn’t have any real formula problems, and they went on smooth and easy. Let’s look at the swatches.
Blue Hue is a multi-colored hex glitter in a sheer blue base. I layered this over Zoya Breezi for the look you see. One coat of Blue Hue with OTD top coat.
Rosy Glow is a multi-colored hex glitter in a sheer pinkish/red base. I layered this over Milani Mango Tango for the look below. One coat of Rosy Glow with OTD top coat.
Poppin’ Bottles is a silver pearl with silver hex glitter and a gold iridescent finish. I layered this over a sheer white, Zoya Adel, and love how it came out. This is such a classy look! This is one layer of Poppin’ Bottles over 2 layers of Zoya Adel with OTD top coat.
Purple Haze is a multi-colored hex glitter in a sheer purple base. Again, I love how this one turned out as well. This is one coat of Purple Haze over 2 coats of Zoya Suri and OTD top coat. My pictures are slightly more blue, the macro picture shows the true color much better.
Frost Finish is a matte top coat. I personally am loving the matte top coat craze that is going on in the polish community these days, and was very excited with this one. For a lower priced brand, this matte top coat is fabulous! As you can see I matte-fied the Purple Haze mani. I didn’t even want to take this off!
What’s the Splatter?
What’s the Splatter? is a black and white hex glitter in a clear base. This one is actually very unique to my collection, as all the black and white glitter toppers I have found include bar glitter. (Yes, bar glitter is banned from my collection.) For the look below I used 2 coats of What’s the Splatter? over 2 coats of Zoya Eden, followed up with OTD top coat.
Doll Face is soft pastel creme peach. I absolutely love this color, I love all variations of coral/peach/orange. Knowing that these pastel colors often have a difficult formula I was prepared for such, but I’m happy to report I did not have those issues with this one. The first coat is a little streaky, but the second coat evened it out perfectly. Again, I didn’t want to take this one off. Love it.
Flawless is a frosted light gold with a metallic finish. The swatches below are 2 coats with OTD top coat. I did use a coat of matte top coat before the gloss top coat to help even it out. (There’s a tip for you!) I’ve never been a fan of gold polish, mostly because it doesn’t work with my skin tone, but if you like gold polish this is a good option.
Pure Ice is available at Walmart locations nationwide and at Walmart.com. They retail for $1.97 each, which is really a steal for a good quality polish.
So what do you think of the Pure Ice New Year, New Hue Collection? Do you have a favorite? Clearly my favorite is Doll Face, and she will become a staple in my collection.
