During a recent shopping trip to Wal-Mart, I spotted a display of Pure Ice nail polish in every color of the rainbow. I love pale blue nail polish, so I purchased a bottle of Splash, a beautiful baby blue with shimmer. I wasn't familiar with Pure Ice nail products by Bari Cosmetics, Ltd., but for $2.50 a bottle, it was worth trying once.
I love the color of this nail polish! It's true to the color in the bottle. What you see is what you get! Some shades of Pure Ice have glitter suspended in clear nail polish and some are opaque with a shimmer appearance. Using the nail polish over other shades will create unique colors.
You should apply Pure Ice nail polish over a clear base coat for best results. Your nails [like hair and skin] can absorb the color because of high pigmentation. Two coats of nail polish are recommended, however I use one coat without problems. If you are using a darker color, you may have to use 2-3 coats. The nail polish goes on smooth and dries very quickly. Using a top coat will help the nail polish last longer.
When I first used the nail polish, I really didn't expect it to last more than a day or two. Surprisingly, my nails still looked great a week later. My hands were not subjected to harsh cleaners or hard work, so that may be the reason for the durability.
Like most nail polish on the market, Pure Ice has the typical nail polish scent due to the ingredients. The smell dissipates quickly, but you should always apply nail polish in a well ventilated area.
The bottles of nail polish are square, so they are stored easily side by side. They fit nicely in a vanity drawer, box or basket, which makes organizing easier.
Pure Ice nail polish is available in a variety of colors, sure to please everyone. It's long-lasting, chip resistant and it's affordable. I can't wait to try more colors!
