Greetings! Today, I have the New Year, New Hue Collection from Pure Ice. This collection consists of seven polishes and a matte top coat.
I topped all of the swatches with the collection's matte top coat, Frost Finish, which gave all the polishes a gorgeous frosty appearance, which I really loved! Now, let's get to those swatches!
"Rosy Glow" is an orange-pink tinted sheer polish filled with iridescent hex glitter. Here I am wearing three coats. In three coats, "Rosy Glow" is fairy opaque, which sets it apart from the two other similar polishes in this collection.
"Blue Hue" is a blue tinted sheer polish filled with iridescent hex glitter. Here I am wearing three coats. I am not typically a fan of sheer polish, but I confess that I don't mind this one despite being able to see my nails beneath it. I do, however, think this would look even better worn over a blue creme to intensify the color. I love the way Frost Finish makes this polish looked like frosted glass.
"Purple Haze" is a purple tinted sheer polish filled with iridescent hex glitter. Here I am wearing three coats. As with "Blue Hue," although I am not typically a fan of sheer polish, I really don't mind this. "Purple Haze" would probably also look even better over a creme polish in a similar shade.
"Dollface" is an orange-learning peach creme. Here I am wearing two coats. "Doll Face" has a really nice and easy formula.
"Poppin' Bottles" is a a silver and gold shimmery glitter topper filled with a mixture of silver hex glitter in two sizes. I think "Poppin'" Bottles was intended to be worn on its own, but after a few coats, it wasn't opaque enough for my taste, so here I am wearing two coats over "Dollface."
"Flawless" is a frosty gold creme with a metallic finish. Since I've topped it with Frost Finish, the metallic finish is not as evident. Here I am wearing two coats. As with most pearly or frosty polishes, you need to be careful about brush strokes so as to avoid streaking. I really like this color, and I also found that 'Flawless works well for stamping!
For this look I used "Flawless to stamp a leafy pattern with Born Pretty Store plate BP-19 over "Dazzle" by Joshik Polish. I love how subtle "Flawless" looks over this green to purple chameleon polish.
"What's the Splatter?" is a clear-based glitter topper filled with black and white matte hex glitter in a variety of sizes. Here I am wearing one coat over "Flawless." I really loved how these two looked together, and I think this glitter topper would look awesome over any color. Black and white matte glitter toppers never really go out of style in my book, so this baby is a winner, especially when the entire mani has a matte finish.
My top picks from this collection would have to be "Purple Haze," "Blue Hue," "What's the Splatter?" and Frost Finish Matte Top Coat. I love how Frost Finish dried to a perfect matte finish, which gave each of these polishes a very unique look.
