Golden Rose Care + Strong - 171 and Pure Ice - Busted

Edited to fix title - Pure Ice (not Icing, sorry)
APPLICATION: Smooth, though I had to thin it after the 1st coat
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: After layering, yes
SOURCE: Golden Rose: goldenroseusa.com, Pure Ice: Walmart
COMMENTS: This was a good basic black that covered nicely in two coats. Mine was thick though, and because I didn't thin it until the second coat, I got bubbles in my first coat. That made it a fine candidate for layering! Seen below is the black with 1 coat of Pure Ice - Busted.


Golden Rose Care + Strong - 171 on its own - two coats, no topcoat:






I "played" with my index and ring finger the next day - the first with a coat of Barielle Elle's Spell and the second with a coat of Fashion Bug's Black Onyx. Middle and pinky are still sporting the original manicure.

  1. This is so pretty!! Amazing what a sheer polish can do to black. I'm also enthralled by the finger with Fashion Bug's Black Onyx... is that silver glitter? White? I can't tell... but it is gorgeous!

  5. @Maria and mrsrexy: Black Onyx is silver glitter in a darker base (I can't remember the base exactly). I'll try to wear it in the near future so you can see it.

  9. Pure Ice Busted is one of my favorite layering polishes! Oddly enough I haven't done it over black. Must try!
