Most of the time I don't really like the Walmart that is in our town due to the fact that they don't really have much in the way of nail polish (and by that, I mean they never restock their shelves so they have next to nothing). But once in a while, I'll get lucky and I'll find a shade that I really want to get. Yesterday at Walmart, I found a Pure Ice polish that I really liked and knew I wanted to get (it also helped that it was the only one left on the shelf as well).
This is Pure Ice Crimson. It's a claret red shimmer that has a tiny hint of gold shimmer in the bottle, but on there isn't any. I believe that this is a dupe for the discontinued Sally Hansen No Chip 10 Day Endless Claret so I will have to do a comparison later to see if I'm right or not. This is a very lovely shade of red since it stands out, but it's not so in your face about it. I really enjoy this red since it's hard to find a good red due to the whole jaundice thing that happens with reds.
10 minutes later I got bored with it so I wanted to put some glitter on top to spice it up. Fiona suggested trying China Glaze's Ruby Pumps over Crimson. I did and it came out awesome. Ruby Pumps gave it a subtle amount of red glitter that punched up my nails. It reminded me of the shoes that Dorothy wears in 'The Wizard of Oz'. I will probably be wearing this manicure again in December for Christmas, but I might add a little something else to it to make it a little different from then. This combo also reminds me of a Maybeline Express that I used to have in high school called Red Comet which was a ruby red color with lots of very fine red glitter mixed into it. That one got thrown away somehow so unfortunately I can't compare the two to see if they are dupes or not. :(
So I hope you all liked today's polish choice and hope you all had a great weekend!
