Color of the Week: Key Lime Glitz

Well, today begins another installment of… Color of the Week! This time it’s one of my favorite nail combos as of yesterday: China Glaze Nova over Pure Ice Wild Thing. This review will be two-fold, one for the base, and one for the glitter top coat. So, here is the piccie for you to look at.

The Review, Part One: Pure Ice Wild Thing
•Application: The cap was kind of small and a little slim, but the application itself was streaky at first like a lot of my thick cremes. But it evened itself out on the second coat, so I didn’t even need to apply a third.
•Dry Time: I’d say this one also had a nice dry time, considering I applied it in two thick coats. Usually when you apply a polish in thick coats, it takes longer to dry fully. This must have dried (fully) in about 20 minutes tops.
•Coverage: This is what I like to classify as ‘impact’ after so many coats. Wild Thing covered a bit streakily on the first coat, but then the second coat made it fully cover. This is excellent.
•Wear: This is what I like to classify as ’staying power’. I applied this on over a base of Nailtiques formula 2 protein yesterday. And so far it has stayed on perfectly–not even a slight bit of tipwear. I may wear this for an extra day or so to really test its staying power.

The Review, Part 2: China Glaze Nova
•Application: This stuff was excellent. It applied better than any other chunky glitter I’ve ever owned in the past. And better yet, you could really see its potential after just one coat over Wild Thing.
•Dry Time: Another fast-dry polish. Well, fast-dry as in just above average. This must have dried fully in about two minutes.
•Coverage: This is what I like to classify as ‘impact’ after so many coats. Nova covered like any other chunky glitter polish does after just one coat. However, like I said in the application part, it really showed its holo goodness in just one coat over Pure Ice Wild Thing.
•Wear: This is what I like to classify as ’staying power’. I applied this on over Pure Ice Wild Thing, and it has stayed put. No tip wear, no glitter falling off. This was perfect.

I fully recommend Pure Ice as a brand to truly consider investing in if you’re ever at your nearest Wal-Mart. As far as I know, they don’t sell online, nor do they have their own website. China Glaze, well, we already know about that one so I don’t need to put my stamp of approval on that. Anyway, have a great morning, peeps!
