Pure Ice Scream! and Home Run swatches+review

Hi all! :) Have you entered my 2-year blogaversary celebration giveaways? No, well there's one here, and another here. And I'll probably be putting another up tomorrow! I like having a lot of mini giveaways...more people have chances to win! Today I bring you two gorgeous Pure Ice polishes. I picked them up at a local WalMart in the clearance bin. However, they were marked $1.97, which is regular price. Sneaky WalMart trying to get people to think stuff is on clearance when it's not!

First up is Scream! This is a beautiful teal creme with excellent formula! I am always amazed when I put on a Pure Ice polish. For an inexpensive polish, these babies are great! I am finding myself more often than not, reaching for one of them. I had absolutely no issues with this polish. Like I said, great formula, stunning payoff!

The second polish I have for you today is Home Run. This color really doesn't make me think of baseball much. Even tho it is gorgeous. It's a minty creme. The formula is lovely, like the previous color, but it was a little on the thin side...which actually worked out in my favor. In two coats it looks absolutely flawless :)

What do you think of these Pure Ice polishes? Do you own any? What are your thoughts? Don't forget to enter my giveaways here and here. Also, be on the lookout for more giveaways this week!

**DISCLAIMER** I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these products myself or were given gifts from friends . I am not a professional nail tech or make-up artist, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails and experimenting with make-up! :)

  1. I LOVE Pure Ice!! I'm always amazed at how cheap it is. And it works so well in nail art and water marbles. When I heard they were discontinuing Jaguar, I went and bought all they had left (4)!

  2. When I first began collecting nail polish, I shy'd away from these...Boy was I wrong! I LOVE Pure Ice and I find myself picking some up on almost every trip to Walmart. I have not gotten a bad one yet.

  5. I LOVE Pure Ice! I love the price, colors, formula and the fact they are cruelty free! At my job I wear gloves which makes my nail polish chip off in like 2 or 3 days so at 2$ a bottle I can't go wrong!
