Pure Ice - Winter Crackle & Ice Duo - Silver Glitter with Teal Crackle

I have another Crackle & Ice Duo from Pure Ice to share with you today. This set contains a silver glitter (number 537CP) and a teal crackle named Strike a Pose. The crackle is a metallic bright blue teal. I can honestly say I have nothing like it in my collection. It is a bit sheer and allows the glitter shine through. It was easy to apply and the crackle very consistent. The photos can't accurately capture just how sparkly this manicure really is. I'm at a loss for words as I keep staring at my nails :D





Swatch Details
Brand: Pure Ice
Collection: Winter Crackle & Ice Duo: Silver Glitter & Teal Crackle
Color Name/Number: Strike a Pose, 576CP (over 537CP)
Number of coats: 1
Top Coat: Yes

Free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)
Contains Camphor

By itself 537CP (I wish they would name it), is a dense silver glitter. It provides almost full nail coverage by three coats. The only problem I ran into with this polish is that is has a very strong chemical smell. I was quite surprised since none of the other Pure Ice polishes have bothered me before. If you are sensitive to strong smells then you have been warned. These swatches are three coats plus a top coat...




Swatch Details
Brand: Pure Ice
Collection: Winter Crackle & Ice Duo: Silver Glitter & Teal Crackle
Color Name/Number: Beware, 537CP
Number of coats: 3
Top Coat: Yes

Free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)
Contains Camphor

UPDATE: Thanks to the information from a lovely reader, the glitter polish actually has a name of Beware.

I know everyone is over the crackles, but I'm quite impressed with the ones I have tried from Pure Ice. The combos go so well together and this metallic teal crackle is a stunner. I'm just thinking of how it would look over a dark polish... hmm! If you missed my previous two reviews, check out the Gold Glitter with Black Crackle and Gold with Red Crackle.

I love your feedback, so let me know what you think :)

Thanks for looking!

  3. I kind of feel the same way, in theory I know everyone is over crackles, but I still try them and love them. So I'll settle for being out of fashion on this one :)
