Digit-al Dozen Does Bling: NEW Pure Ice Belle of the Ball Collection

 press sample 
It’s the final day of Digit-al Dozen Bling Week. I’ll get to the “bling” at the end of the post. First, I have a new Pure Ice shade to show you…which is a little bit of a mystery. Maybe my sleuthing readers can solve it. (Or maybe by the time I post this, it will be old news!) So anyway, Pure Ice sent me a few polishes to review and in the package was this pretty periwinkle crème called Castle of Dreams. A note in the package said it was part of a new Limited Edition Collection called Belle of the Ball.

Pure Ice Castle of Dreams from the Belle of the Ball Collection

I’ve always been a fan of Pure Ice. For a polish that retails for only $1.99 at Walmart, the formulas are nice, the color range is huge, the glitters are complex and the fancy finishes (suede, matte, etc.) seem high end. Castle of Dreams was like the rest. It was smooth and opaque in two coats. So what’s the mystery? Below is the only thing I know about this collection. There isn’t any info on the Pure Ice website or Facebook. It’s appears to be targeted at Prom season…which I believe is NOW, right?

I did find a blurb about the collection on the Beauty Blitz website. [Beauty Blitz was given an exclusive about this collection before Pure Ice could do any blogger outreach.] There’s a giveaway scheduled for today!  (Go enter!) But even in the giveaway announcement, there's no mention of what colors or how many colors are included in the collection. In fact, I don't even think the polishes in the picture are from the Belle of the Ball CollectionCastle of Dreams is #1046. Currently the Pure Ice site and the Bari Cosmetics site only go up to #1029.

I found an eBay seller listing new Pure Ice polishes with numbers around #1046 with names that fit the theme. There are bottle shots but I won’t include them here (just google!). Here are the other polishes I believe are part of this collection:

  • Playful Princess (#1041) – A teal crème.
  • Riding in Style (#1042) – A blue-red or fuchsia crème? Shimmer.
  • Belle of the Ball (#1043) – Looks very similar to Riding in Style in the pics.
  • Touch of Glamour (#1044) – Maybe a coral-leaning pink crème?
  • Fairy Godmother (#1045) – Lavender Crème. Looks a little dusty.

And after all this googling…I find a facebook profile that has swatches of three of these shades! Are they in stores already and just haven’t been publicized yet? Am I the last person on the planet to know? LOL. It wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened! I haven't checked my local Walmart. Maybe they were silently stocked and no one knows the difference? Well, hopefully they'll be more info soon and we can all race out to grab them before they're gone! I'll be sure to update this post as soon as I learn more.

Alright...so let's get to the bling. I realize this is a stretch, but I'm calling this "blingy" because the colors are so flashy. I actually did add some glitter to it - and it ruined it. :(  In addition to Castle of Dreams I used two summery shades from the Pure Ice 2013 line-up. Wild Thing (#616CP) is a chartreuse creme and Flirt Alert (#617CP) is a bright pink. I used a few combos of colors. I love this!
