Pure Ice The Art Of Nail Noir Collection – Fall 2013




Remember how Fall started? Well, apparently California didn’t get the memo because I feel like it’s still way too hot. I actually get in a crappy mood when it’s hot so of course I’ve been irritated. The only thing that I’ve been happy about is all the delicious Fall polishes. Have I told you how much I love Fall collections? This year I am somewhat disappointed by all the icky foil and metallic finish polishes, but there are still plenty of other gorgeous shades to keep me entertained. Oh, before I forget: in case you don’t follow me on youtwitfacearest, I updated my blog sale with a bunch of stuff so check it out. I need to destash because my room is being overrun by polish…and my living room as well. I can totally see myself on a future episode of Hoarders with mounds of nail polish cluttering every room in my apartment. Scary thought or dream come true? Now, moving on to today’s pretties, I have two beautiful polishes from the Pure Ice The Art of Nail Noir Collection.

Pure Ice All Night Long 1Pure Ice All Night Long 2First up is Pure Ice All Night Long. OH MY GLOB. Yes, this is gorgeous but we’ve seen so many similar polishes this Fall! Hey, I’m not complaining because if you are on a budget, this one is the way to go. I am planning to do a shimmery blues smackdown post later this week so you can see what I’m talking about. The formula on this polish was a little thin, but it builds up very nicely. I applied 3 thin coats here and the finish was just beautiful. Best of all, this didn’t stain at all despite how dark and pigmented the polish is.

Pure Ice No Means No 1Pure Ice No Means No 2Don’t you just love polishes that give you the impression that they are glowing? Pure Ice No Means No has that glowing quality about it. This color reminds me a lot of OPI Purple With A Purpose which is one of my favorite purples EVER. Formula was thin but nice so nothing bad to report except that I didn’t want to take this off.

The Art Of Nail Noir Collection has 4 awesome shades:

Not Now –  Forest Green Shimmer Finish
No Means No – Royal Purple Shimmer
Iced Merlot – Oxblood Red with metallic shimmer
All Night Long – Navy Blue Pearl

Not Now will be mine…because who in their right mind can resist an awesome green?? All Pure Ice nail enamels are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. Retailing at only $1.99, Pure Ice nail enamels are available at Walmart.com & Walmart stores nationwide. For more information, please visit Pure Ice on their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will catch you on the flippity flip.

    Yay, cheapies! And pretty ones, too… As much as I love ogling your Dior swatches (and I really do), I think drugstore polishes are underswatched. Thanks for reminding me that polish can be cheap and lovely!

      I love cheapies too! Polishes don’t have to cost $30 to be pretty…but I still like to splurge every now and again. I think the formula on some drugstore polishes can be very iffy, but no more so than salon brands. I think I have had pretty good luck with Pure Ice, Sinful Colors and Wet N Wild.

      I’d love that weather. It is a bit chilly, but I just love cold weather so I can bundle up with warm clothes. 🙂 We can definitely look forward to awesome Fall polishes

    Can I be honest and say that I had to read your “youtwitfacearest” three times to understand what you’re talking about?! Oi, I need more coffee. LOL. I absolutely adore that blue – it’s so freakin’ gorgeous!!

      LOL…yeah, I’m weird. I heard Conan O’Brien called it youtwitface (youtube, twitter and facebook) so I just added pinterest to the mix. 😉 I totally agree about this blue–and for $1.99, how could anyone resist it?

    What gorgeous cheapies! I wish my Walmart wasn’t so ghetto. The polish always looks like Black Friday.
    Polish hoarders = dream come true.

    The collection is named “The Art of Nail Noir,” which doesn’t seem to have much to do with the polish names. “Not Now”…OK, kinda funny, I guess. “No Means No” seems kind of…scary??? “Iced Merlot”…OK, random alcohol thrown in the mix. “All Night Long”…uuhh…kind of contradictory to the “not tonight” theme. I am SO CONFUSED.
    Maybe it’s just too hot still and I am cranky, LOL! I will admit that the colors are nice, but, WTF with the naming?
    “youtwitfacearest”…heehee! 😉
