Pure Ice Purple Reign

First things first, let's go straight to the picture.

Pure Ice Purple Reign, crack-of-dawn sun

I was freezing my tushie off when I took this picture. It's a whole different kind of awesome being up that early and having Popsicle toes. I can't swear by color accuracy in this photo because I'm working on someone else's computer, but I believe it's pretty close, maybe a shade darker due to the early morning light.

Oh you want the technical details! Let's see, for the base I used Nail Tek Foundation II, then two coats of Purple Reign (Yes, that is one coat on my pinky. No, I don't know where my brain was.) and topped it all off with a nice coat of Poshe. Application was fairly easy, uneven on the first coat but filling in nicely on the second coat. Who am I kidding, I'd love this even if it was a pain to apply. I adore that coppery shimmer. Go buy it. You know you want to.

Okay, now I want to apologize for abruptly going missing. (And while I have a contest going, sheesh!) A lot of things happened at once with work and cars and hubby and I watching two different houses for friends on vacation (at one point simultaneously) as well as trying to keep our own house and critters cared for, among other things. I sort of shut down inside in self-defense and let go completely of all things Internet-related. (Boy oh boy, did I miss reading up on my favorite blogs. I have a lot of catching up to do). Things are turning around though and even the supposedly "temporary" work situation may be resolved soon. So, watch for my next post and don't forget to enter the Revlon Glitter giveaway if you haven't already!


  1. Oh, this is such a beautiful shade! If you ever get tired of it, please, send it to me :D

  2. I only a couple of Pure Ice polishes so far, but the quality of both has been superb! I'll be getting this one for sure!

  3. This is a long time lemming for me, so pretty!

  4. @Biba If I ever find it in the store again, I'll send you a bottle!

    @Sarah I love that I don't have a single other polish like this one =D

    @April Pure Ice has definitely improved over the years. Definitely keep an eye out for this one!

    @Jackie S. It amazes me how hard it can be to find some of these drugstore polishes! I found this bottle sitting on a random shelf in the candle section of walmart and haven't seen it again since =(
