I had originally started out with only one color. Pure Ice's "Busted," which is a shimmery lilac with flashes of pink. The thing with this polish is that it is SO SHEER. This is 5 coats and I can STILL see my nail line. No bueno.
I haven't tried Pure Ice polishes before so I don't know how the other colors fare. But out of the 3 I have, 2 are SUPER DUPER SHEER. I had wished they would show up on my nails like in the bottle, but I guess I was hoping a little too much for a $2 polish. They are fantastic for layering over other shades, but on their own; they take way too much time and effort to apply.
So I decided to do a gradient fade with my other very sheer Pure Ice polish in "Heartbreaker."
