Pure Ice Shine with Gel Tech™ - Shock & Awesome

     I picked up a few Pure Ice Cosmetics nail polishes from Walmart the other day.  This particular polish rang in at $2.97 CAD.  I've previously only tried one colour from this brand, so I thought I'd give a few more a try.  Can't beat the price.


     Shock & Awesome is a really, really........really pretty warm toned purple.  The pictures don't do it justice.  It's really pretty.  I love the colour.  However, the swatch below took four coats to achieve mostly full opacity.  So, it's definitely on the sheer side.

Fluorescent lighting.

     After wearing for 4 days, I have very light (minimal) wear, just on the very tips.  No full on chips as of yet.  Pretty good, I'd say, considering the low cost.  The next time I apply this colour, I'm going to try it out with a darker base before hand, to try to minimize the coats needed for full opacity.  We shall see!

     This colour is also stunning with a matte top coat.

     I really do love this shade, and despite the sheerness, I would definitely buy this particular colour again.  Absolutely.


     Have you tried any Pure Ice nail polish?  How did it work out for you?  I'd love to hear about it!
