Pure Ice Poppin Bottles

I had an interesting polish find at Walmart from Pure Ice. I really haven't paid any attention to Pure Ice in years. I haven't really found anything unique or worthwhile from them. It's a very affordable brand at $2 a bottle. They're a great value, but when you have a collection of my size it's hard to find something original in the mix. I did spot this one recently and was surprised to see a color like this in their line.

Poppin Bottles over China Glaze DJ Blew My Mind
Poppin Bottles is a silvery-golden glass fleck shimmer with sliver glitters.

Collection: Pure Ice Core

Color: This instantly reminds me of the type of shimmer glitters from the Maybelline Brocades collection, in particular Silver Swank. I love this highly reflective shimmer-glitter combination. It's really beautiful, and not something I think really caught on much in nail polish. That being said, in comparison to the Maybelline it's pretty weak.

Formula: This formula is very sheer and the larger siliver glitters are very sparse. I used 2 coats over a base. I would find this impossible to get an opaque finish unless you did 5+ coats. Poppin Bottles does apply nicely and easily, it's just a top coat. 

Price: I paid $2 for this at Walmart.

Overall: I have to give it to Pure Ice for creating a polish like this. It's unique to a brand of this value. The polish could be better though. It could be more opaque and more glitter could be added. It's a nice polish, but that's about it. It could be better.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Tuesday!

  2. That blue underneath pairs so well with it.

  3. That is so pretty. It looks great with the blue.
