Pure Ice Nail Polishes

(These polishes were provided to me for my honest review.)

Sometimes, when you just need a little pick-me-up, a simple pleasure in purchasing an inexpensive nail polish can do just the trick. Plus, it’s calorie free.

I have several Pure Ice polishes that were sent to me to try out. They are all pretty and, the selection was a wide range of colors and types.

After Hours is a warm pink shade. It’s a great shade for Summer. I have applied 3 coats, as I did with all swatches here…

Next is Viva Las Vegas. Again, three coats of this rockin’ bronze polish…

Sea Glass is my favorite of the ones I got to sample. This is a very sweet, fun and not in your face shade. Even though it’s green, this polish goes with just about everything because it is demure…

This is Ballet Slippers and, if you are looking for a wedding polish or, one for a very young miss, I highly recommend this shade…

I wanted to work on accenting Wide Awake with a coat of black polish underneath. I love the multi-dimensional look it made…

Pure Ice is found, exclusively, at WalMart. The line has a multitude of shades from cremes, to metallics and fun glitters. They cost only $1.99 and that, my friends, is cheaper than a therapy session.

Which of these 6 is your favorite?

Disney’s ‘Ocean Mist’ for a Splendid St. Patrick’s Day Nail Polish

Did you know that Disney has its own polish line? Yes! And who else could make such magical shades as this one?…

DSCF0400This is ‘Ocean Mist’. Isn’t it a great, sparkly green for the advent of Spring, fanciful leprechauns and St. Patrick’s Day?…



Sadly, photos do not even begin to show the almost holographic sparkles in this polish. The various colors are so tiny that you have to stare super hard to see them individually…




I don’t know if this is a shade that Ariel would wear as much as I imagine Ursula sporting it. In person, it is not subdue. I had more people ask me if I was wearing green for St. Patrick’s Day. Yea, well, that too. But I received this find bottle of polish in a Secret Santa gift exchange…



And it is special just because of that. I will mention, however, that this polish glided on like a fine Disney on ice skier. I have on just two coats and the leveling ability is star quality. Just remember when you take it off, you are going to be left with some of these teeny bits of glitter as a souvenir of your Disney polish, like a fine ‘Ocean Mist’. The wear was average for me, 4 days with a Color Club Eco Top Coat. Even though ‘Ocean Mist’ didn’t need a top coat to add any shine, I do it to get extended wear.

Are you sporting your green for March? Have you tried any of Disney’s polishes.
