Woo-Hoo! Summer is finally here! Well, sort of. It's not "officially" summer yet, but it's getting pretty darn close! I love this time of year. The weather is nice, there are loads of events starting to take place here in my little town. Summer really is the best time of year, and we like to celebrate it any way we can.
One way I like to celebrate the arrival of summer is by adding some fun color to my look. Unfortunately, I can't just go out and buy an entire new wardrobe. So rather than buying loads of new clothing and shoes, I get a few staple pieces and then add pops of color using accessories and nail polish. These little things make a huge difference, and let's be real....Nail polish is fun!
Recently, I received a few great nail polishes from the folks at Pure ICE. These nail polishes come in a variety of fun, funky colors and finishes, and they're super-affordable, too. You can find them at Walmart for just a couple bucks a pop. They even have brand new, Butterfly Effects polishes and nail decals that are totes adorbs. (Wait. Did I just say that? My teen is rubbing off on me!)
I have to admit, I do not have mad nail art skills. I look at the gorgeous designs on Pinterest, and all I can muster are some pretty embarrassing fails. Why can't anything be as simple as Pinterest makes it appear?
Anyway, while I can't show you any meticulously created nail masterpiece, I can tell you that these polishes rock for everyday wear. I used a base coat, and then 2 coats of the gorgeous shade, Splash! Of course a top coat was added, too.
My 5 year old, Sophie, LOVES this color. She said I have "Elsa Nails". I suppose she's right, since this breathtaking shade is very much like Elsa's dress in "Frozen", and it even has a little shimmer to it. My photos really don't do it any justice. You need to just run out and grab a bottle. This is truly the perfect shade for summer!
But, I am sure you may be wondering, how does it hold up to everyday things like housework, yard work, and opening things constantly for little children. Well, I am delighted to report that when using a base coat and top coat. Pure ICE nail polishes last and last. The photo above was taken after this polish has been on for over a week. As you can see, there's very minimal wear or chipping. For just a couple dollars, it's one heck of a beauty bargain!
