Manicure Monday: Pure Ice It's Complicated

Happy Monday! My birthday is this week, which means this weeks' mani has to be a little festive. Since I received a fun glitter polish in my recent Influenster Viva Voxbox, it all worked out perfectly.

I layered Pure Ice's It's Complicated over Zoya's Jacqueine so the glitter would look like fun confetti over frosting. I don't know, that's just what it makes me think of.

Pure Ice polishes are available at Walmart and retail for $1.69. It's Complicated is a multi-color glitter polish with chunky octagonal glitters and smaller micro-glitter. Like many glitter polishes, it can be tricky to work with to get full coverage. However, layered over another color, you can get decent glitter pay off if you follow this chunky glitter application method that I learned from Cristina over at Let Them Have Polish. If you just try to swipe it on like you would regular polish, then the glitter pay off is pretty sparse.

If you love all things glitter, perhaps give this one a go. I wasn't personally blown away, but I'm also not super crazy about glitter polish. I really have to be in the mood for it -- and even then, sometimes my enthusiasm wanes after a few hours.

I was much more impressed by the creme polish (After Hours) I received in my Influenster Voxbox along with this one. Creme finish polishes are my jam.
