Pure ICE Oh Baby! (Pic Heavy)

I'm not a fan of the name because it makes me think of a certain song.  So it's a good thing one look at this gorgeous duochrome will make me forget everything! :)



2 coats of Pure Ice Oh Baby! layered over 3 coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black (left two) and 2 coats of China Glaze First Mate (right two).  (I did a thicker second coat of Oh Baby on the ring, which is why it looks lighter.)

Oh Baby has a clear base filled with lots of pretty blue/teal shimmer with pink and purple duochrome.  I also spotted a tinge of orange in the edges of the bottle, but that wasn't visible on the nail.  Overall, I love this polish, especially since I've been looking for a black with pink and blue duochrome!  The duochrome is strong, so you can see it clearly on your nail without much effort.  I had a hard time capturing the duochrome with my camera because the glare would cover it, but in person it's very visible.  I'm pretty sure with the right base, you can also dupe Orly Galaxy Girl with this polish. ;)







I also tried it matte.  It's cool, but I prefer it shiny. :)






You can buy Pure Ice Oh Baby at Walmart for $1.97, so it's definitely worth owning!  Let me know what you think in the comments!

I'm also leaving for vacation tomorrow, so I don't think there will be any posts from me for the rest of the week.  However, still send me your FFAN entries!  If you send them in, I can definitely compile those and post them up on Friday. :)


Until next time!

  8. I just got mine a week or two ago. So glad I did! I layered it over purple, blue, and pink! The duochrome kinda tried to match the color which was pretty cool!

  10. This looks so good! It reminds me of NYC Love Letters which I LOVE for layering. I might have to get this too since Love Letters was discontinued before I could get a backup.
