Pure Ice — Good Glistener (Shine with Gel Tech Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

Collection: Pure Ice 2016, Shine with Gel Tech Nail Polish [Launch]

Pure Ice, a brand developed with and exclusive to Walmart, is one that I haven’t tried very much in the past. I think I may have owned one or two before I recently bought this one.

Shine with Gel Tech Nail Polish is their newer line of nail polish. I believe their regular Nail Color line is still available, but it’s not on Walmart Canada’s website.

Good Glistener (1280) is a semi-opaque light taupe with gold shimmer.

The formula for this is fine. I mean, it helps that it’s on the sheerer side and has a lot of shimmer in it, which are very forgiving nail polish traits.

I like the way this looks, too! I think it’d work well with just one or two coats for a sheer, shimmery nude look. However, I did use three coats in my swatch to get more coverage. You can still see VNL (visible nail line), though.

No complaints here. I’m curious to try an opaque shade to really judge how good these polishes are, but Good Glistener is a winner!

  1. Hrm it’s more sheer than I thought it would be. It’s like the sheerer sister to China Glaze Fast Track from the Hunger Games collection:
