Swap with Colores de Carol ♥

Hello lovelies,

  So I did a little swap with the lovely Carolina from Colores de Carol not long ago and she sent me some awesome Pure Ice polishes along with some cute stickers and a lip gloss that I can't stop wearing lol. Pure Ice is totally new to me and I had been wanting to try some. I left the choices totally up to her because I like to have colors chosen for me and she picked some beautiful shades!
Dreamy- China Girl- Rio- Celestial- Heart Breaker- A*List.
Today I'll be showing you Rio and Celestial. Rio is an absolutely gorgeous Fuchsia jelly packed full of micro iridescent Purple glitter which resembles Pixie dust sprinkled all over my nails. I could not stop staring at my nails for a good while before I applied a coat of Fault Line which complemented Rio beautifully. With Rio there was still some VNL at Three coats but I'm not a VNL hater so it didn't bother me.


  And here is Celestial. This is basically a metallic Royal blue. I know what you are thinking O.P.I Blue my Mind  or CG Frostbite. Close, but no cigar. This is much more of a metallic finish than a shimmer also more of a true Blue... The formula is good on this one but watch out for brushstrokes. Keep your hand steady but light when working with finishes like this one. This is Two coats.
 

  I'm really liking this brand. The polish is great, the price is even better and they have an awesome color range! I love when inexpensive brands surprise me with how good they are.

Have you ever tried Pure Ice?

  2. I have a few from Pure Ice.... I always eye them when I go to Walmart! At $2, I don't feel bad when I buy them! lol

    If you don't have Obsession and Busted, you have to get those! Obsession is pretty good for stamping.

  5. I love Pure Ice even though I find them too sheer at times. Rio was way too sheer for me, I did 5 coats and it looked like your 3 but it is so pretty so I use it for layering. You should try it over pink and purple, it beautiful! You should also get Cheatin' which is my favorite! Its a gorgeous glitter that's awesome over black! I'll be on the lookout for Celestial now, its beautiful!

  8. I love Pure Ice. They've got really good colors. Most of the ones I own are 2 coaters and I'm very happy with them. The price is good too.
