Pure Ice Crackle Duo!

Gooood morning my pretties!  I hope you all had a good Easter holiday weekend!  I know I did, I got to go home and see my family, it was great :)

I've got a cool polish duo for you today that I was sent to review!  It's a polish + crackle duo from Pure Ice called Pure Ice Lightning Crackle Duo!

First up is the base polish, a lovely, but unnamed, green duochrome/metallic! 





I was really surprised with the formula of Pure Ice, which I hadn't tried before.  Sometimes the cheaper drug store brand polishes have crap formulas, but this one was actually good!  It went on opaque in two coats (but I used three for pictures), and was actually very pretty.   I love the dark green and it's got an ever-so-slight duochrome to it and sometimes looks quite teal.  Overall, very pretty!

On top I layered the lightning crackle:




This polish cracked quite easily, but I wish that it cracked...larger cracks so you could see the green a little more!  I think the silver kind of overpowers the pretty green! Maybe thinner coats could correct this problem, though, it'd been a while since I used a crackle polish!

However, I really do like the look of silver crackle.  I never received the OPI Silver Shatter that I won in someone's giveaway (bummer!), so I was kind of psyched to try this.  I think it'd look great over other colors as well!

Have you guys tried any of the Pure Ice polish duos?  I haven't seen them in stores, but then again, I haven't been in Walmart for a while--and to my knowledge, that's the only place they sell Pure Ice!  Correct me if I'm wrong, though, ladies :)

Hope you enjoyed!

    1. It doesn't have a name on the bottle, just the number 311CP! I think you can only get it in the duo set.
