Pure Ice Cheatin

I love a good glitter and this one is seriously awesome.  I present to you Pure Ice Cheatin.  It's a clear base with purple, pink, and blue glitter.  It's not very opaque, so if you wear it alone you'll need several coats.  I put it over Essie Sexy Divide.  The formula was great and easy to apply.  I think there's just enough glitter in this one - not too much so you can't see the color underneath, but not too little that you need 2-3 coats to even notice it.

This is 2 coats of Sexy Divide and 1 coat of Cheatin.  I finished it with 2 coats of quick dry top coat.

As you know, I love matted glitter so I applied 1 coat of Essie Matte About You.

I prefer the matte version since it cuts down the shine and makes the glitter "pop" on the nail.  What do you think?  Do you like matted glitter?

Thanks for looking!


  1. Looks good! I just picked this up at WallyWorld. Been noticing it on the shelf for a while but never bought it because I already have so many purple glitters, but today I finally caved. For my taste I would do 2-3 coats of Cheatin over one coat of black.

  2. Thanks, Jannine! I'm glad you like the photos! :)
