Pure Ice: Eyes of Steel, Lightening Strikes & Silver Mercedes

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I have some colors from the Pure Ice Five Shades of Grey collection to share with you.  These are losely based on the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomena. Have any of you read the books? I got sucked in by co-workers but I am only on book 2 because I am a little bored with it. Oh well!!! 

First up I have the color Eyes of Steel topped with Lightening Strikes Crackle.  I am not the hugest fan of crackle, I am so over it but for some reason I felt like wearing this combo and actually left it on for three days! It's just a regular silver crackle.  Eyes of Steel is a dark charcoal frost color that you can barely see when the crackle is on top. It's a true frost finish so that means sort of streaky and unruly. 

Next up is Silver Mercedes which is a light silver frost. I only needed one coat for the opacity shown below so that's pretty cool.  The color is a frost and can lead to streaking if you don't watch out but I think it came out pretty decent with just one coat. What do you think?

I am not a huge fan of frosts or crackles so these didn't get me too excited. I do however enjoy Pure Ice lacquers and I enjoy their price even more. Pure Ice is found at Walmart and last I checked they were like $2.50 so you can't go wrong. Some of my favorite polishes are from Pure Ice, these just aren't among them. They're not bad, just not for me.  The crackle worked well and had a nice design and the one coat opacity is always a great thing, I just don't rock silver or frost often enough to call these favs.  

Have you tried the Pure Ice brand? What are some of your favorite Pure Ice colors? I have Pure Ice at my Walmart stores but their selection has gone down a lot over the years, they used to carry so many colors, now just a handful. I have also seen Pure Ice at Walgreens. 

Have a great day!
