TIOT: Pure Ice Twinkle

A quick Try It On Tuesday post today featuring Twinkle from Pure Ice. This is a polish that I seen swatched on another blog and I loved the way it looked so I set out on a search for it! It only took me like 3 months to find it LOL

Twinkle is a lovely peachy coral shade with gold shimmer, perfect for summer. As gorgeous as this shade is in my photo, I did have some issues. I'm not 100% sure if the issues were with Twinkle it's self or if it was because of the matte top coat I added to the top, which you can't even tell that I did that.


For me the formula seems to be a touch thicker than the other Pure Ice polishes I have used. Although I may have gotten a bottle that someone used to paint their nails in the store then put it back on the shelf, Yes that really happened. Hubby and I were in Walmart and I dragged him to the polish aisle with me and there was a teenager and I'm assuming her mother painting their nails then put the polishes back on the shelf. If you are someone that does that, please don't, when I buy polish from a store I expect it to be NEW not used.

Okay, I'll get off my soap box now. As you can hopefully see in my photos, I ended up with some air bubbles. I did have to apply 3 coats of this to get it to the opacity I wanted, so I don't know if that's what caused it or if it was in fact the NYC matte top coat.

I really want to say it was the top coat because I just swatched it on my nail wheel and it came out fine. May have to put this back in the Unworn basket and give it another try.


Hope you all are having a fabulous day and be sure to come back tomorrow for something really special!

  1. That's so pretty! And I 100% agree with you: if you are not buying the makeup, DON'T TRY IT ON. People who swatch things in the store are basically stealing--the next consumer can't buy an opened product, and the store has to take it off the shelf. It's rude and awful.

    1. That is what my husband said, wasn't that stealing. I stood there in the aisle and they acted like I wasn't even there, taking their time LOL some people!

  2. *scratches head* That's got matte topcoat over it? Really... I hate when people do that. I know it's not technically a hygiene issue, but like you said we're expecting a NEW bottle. Not used.

    1. Yep, I have no clue why it did not dry matte. I've used it before and it worked well :/

  3. This is such a great summer color! I like that you took the pictures in the sunshine :)
    As for people opening nail polish bottles - I see it happen ALL THE TIME - so I try and get one from the back if I can. It bothers me sooo much.

    1. I agree, great summer color. I never thought about people doing that, but then I seen them and was just floored. I will be grabbing bottles from the back from now on too.

  4. I am on a coral/orange kick! I'm so glad you posted this - I had to go to Walmart and pick up a couple of things, and found a bottle of this as well. Can't wait to wear it!
