Pure Ice Holiday Collection (3polishes)

Recently I was contacted by Yvonne Kai, the Director of Social Media (Socially Bella). The email was informing me of the Art Basel contest for Pure Ice. I was asked if I would like to participate by creating 3 new designs to enter into the contest, and if so they would send me 3 nail polishes to get started. So of course I said yes!! I received those 3 polishes in the mail today, they are from the Holiday Collection by Pure Ice. I received Playtime, Five-Some and Sugar Cookie. Here are pictures of the bottles, and swatches!

Playtime, Five-Some, and Sugar Cookie

Up first for the swatches will be Playtime, my absolute favorite! It applied perfecty and was completly opaque in 2 coats, the color is just so gorgeous, the picture does it no justice! Its a micro gold glitter with micro red glitter in it.

Next is Five-Some, which was my second favorite! Pure Ice describes it as a black glitter, but it is so much more than that! It has micro blue, pink, and purple glitters in a black base, just gorgeous!

And last but not least is Sugar Cookie, this was my least favorite of the three, and it was super hard to capture the accurate color on my camera because it is so light. But, Pure Ice describes it being white with red glitter, this is NOT what it is. This polish is pink with large silver glitters and a few micro silver glitters. I don't know if it use to be white, and the red glitter bled, which turned it pink and the glitter silver? Guess I will never know. It is pretty, but to light and kinda plain for me.

And there they are, I do love them. I hope I can get my hands on some more of the Holiday Collection!
Thanks for reading! <3
