Cheap Thrills: A Nail Polish Dupe for Essie Lovers
Gracing my fingertips is the Pure Ice Nail Polish in Bikini, a very pretty and springtime-appropriate pastel blue. This puppy is a one coat wonder! Pictured above is my nails with merely one coat of polish looking almost like candy on the nails. As a test, I have been wearing this single coat of polish for three days and it still has yet to chip. The formula feels thick without the clumps and glides onto the nails like butter. This formula applies in a uniform layer without any streaking and dries to a smooth and glossy candy-coated finish. I have already received compliments from a girl working at Shoppers Drugmart wondering if I was sporting the new Essie Spring Collection (to which I was happy to inform her of my discovery). The Pure Ice range is available at Walmart for the amazing price of $2! If you are tired of spending $10 a piece on Essie polishes, I highly recommend picking up one or two of these to see for yourself. I also own a purple shade in the Pure Ice called Jail Bait which performs just as impressively. I think these nail polishes are massively under-hyped and deserve Essie Dupe status!
Have you tried the Pure Ice nail polish range? Will you be purchasing one to update your nails for spring?
Thanks for reading.
