Pure Ice Getting Gorgeous

When Pure Ice announced that they were releasing dozens of new shades to add to their collection, I was ecstatic.  I adore Pure Ice; the formula is consistently stellar, the colors are unique and wearing, and the price (typically around $2) is spot on.

Asked to review five new shades, my ecstasy turned to elation.  Instead of doing a group post of the five I was sent, I decided to highlight each individually to showcase how lovely the new polishes truly are.

First up is Getting Gorgeous.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  This polish is insane.  I've seen Ozotics and similarly expensive bottles with similar duochrome-esque shimmer but I never thought I'd have the chance to use them myself.  Getting Gorgeous really competes: a bright royal blue shimmer, the polish shifts to purple with the hint of light.  While difficult to capture in  photos, please believe me when I say, on the nail, Getting Gorgeous looks like a blue on fire with burned purple edges.  Only slightly metallic despite how chrome-y my swatches look, I definitely classify this as heavy shimmer.

The formula was interesting at first, since it applied thin and uneven on the first coat with pockets of gloopiness.  But at the second coat, this polish self-levels beautifully.  I used a third for good measure.



With flash.
The bottle shot really captures that purple duochrome effect that makes me head over heels for Getting Gorgeous.


And if you're not convinced yet, here's a macro of the blue-purple shift.   


Sigh...amazing, right?

Get excited because there's more Pure Ice to come!

You can purchase Pure Ice from the Bari Cosmetics website or at Walmart stores nationwide.

  1. I'm also excited about the new Pure Ice colors. I may pass on this one since it looks similar to my SH Laser, not an exact match but close enough for me.

  7. It's not really metallic. I wish I could've captured the shimmer a bit better.

  14. I think it's a dupe of OPI DS Mystery so it's a cheap beauty if you find it!
