Pure Ice New Year, New Hue 2015 Collection - Review and Swatches

Hey guys! Today I am doing a review of Pure Ice's New Year, New Hue Collection! This collection consists of 7 shades and a matte top coat! According to Pure Ice "the collection gives the Pure Ice™ girl a selection of colors that allows her to play with color and texture to create looks straight off the runway – the ultimate way to get the look with the swipe of a brush. Whether it’s feminine & sweet, ultra glam, or rocker chic, the New Year, New Hue collection has an offering of shades to achieve any mood." I would have to agree with that description as this collection has  a nice variety of polish types including 2 glitzy glitter polishes , 3 jelly tints, a cream polish, a frosty champagne shade and a matte top coat so you can really switch up your look!

Doll Face: (2 coats) I really like this shade. It is a soft cream peach shade, opaque in just 2 coats. I think this is a perfect shade to welcome in Spring time. 
Pure Ice Dollface
Poppin' Bottles - I love this one! It's a sheer silver pearl glitter polish with silver hex glitter and a beautiful gold iridescent finish! Perfect polish to bring in the new year! I personally think it looks best layered over a solid polish. (3 coats over Dollface)

Flawless: This is a frosty champagne shade with a soft metallic finish. Opaque in just 2 coats.
Pure Ice Flawless
Frost Finish Matte Top Coat - This is a wonderful matte top coat. Works great! (2 coats over Flawless) : )

What's the Splatter - Clear polish with different sized white & black hex glitter. I think this polish gives  a nice effect when layered over a solid color base polish. (3 coats over Flawless)

Purple Haze Color Hint - A tinted purple jelly with glitter. This polish really has a jelly like texture when applying. I just can't seem to pull off jelly polishes, lol. I personally think jelly polishes look best on shorter nails  and so I prefer these jelly shades over a white or colored polish base. (2 coats, the middle & rings nails are 2 coats over white polish)

Rosy Glow Color Hint - Now this shade has me a little perplexed, lol. It is named "Rosy Glow" and described as a Pink Glitter Tint. In the stock photo it appears pink, but in person it looks orange to me. There was no shade name on my bottle so I literally googled to make sure I had the right shade, lol. I was only able to find one other swatch of Rosy Glow but it looked just like the one I have. So I am assuming I have the right polish and if that's the case then my description of this is a tinted orange jelly polish with glitter : P (2 coats, the middle & rings nails are 2 coats over white polish)

Overall, I enjoy this collection. You can play around with the different textures, mix, match & layer shades to create a variety of different looks. These polishes are inexpensive, retailing for just a $1.97 each at Walmart locations and I also love that Pure Ice polishes are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP! : )
