Butterfly Wings starring Pure Ice


Tonight's mani is my first attempt at Butterfly Wings and I used all Pure Ice polishes for
The Great Pure Ice #NailBasel Challenge.



#PureIce #NailBasel Challenge Mani: Butterfly Wings


Here's what I used:



First Row (L) Pure Ice Jaguar, Twinkle, Hot Tamale and Siren
Second Row Pure Ice Wild Thing, Free Spirit and Trust Me
Third Row Pure Ice Home Run, Internationally Known and All Night Long
Fourth Row Pure Ice Grunge, Touch Me Softly, Temptress and No Means No
Pure Ice Superstar (white) and Black Out


First I did a quick sponge gradient using different colors on each finger and with a nail art brush, I free-handed the black. Then with a dotting tool, I applied the white dots and finished off with a coat of Poshe top coat.

It's not the best I have ever seen of course, but I'm pretty pleased for my first try. What do you think?

  11. VERY VERY PRETTY! I've never been too sure about Pure Ice because it's on the lower lower end of the price range but from the looks of your nails Pure Ice does a fine job.

    Thanks,

    1. Pure Ice polishes are actually great quality - smooth formula. Their cremes are as good as the high dollar polishes. And they're great for water marbling and other nail art too.

    2. I will agree that Pure Ice is on the "cost effective" side; but I will buy them as quick as some can afford the "high end" prices.EXCELLENT coverage and awesome colors.Should be tried by all.
