Oriflame Pure Colour Nail Polish: Blue Ice Shade Review


If there could be anything like ‘nail-polish addiction’, you can certainly call me ‘addicted’. I love sporting various shades and experimenting with nail color. No wonder I am in love with this Blue Ice shade (product code-30806) from the house of Oriflame.


Priced at Rs 169 for a 6 ml bottle, Oriflame Pure Colour Blue Ice shade is a trendy hue. Its non-sticky texture ensures that application is smooth and even. A shade which is like a mishmash of blue and grey with a silvery glossy finish, it glides along the nails while being applied and dries up within a couple of minutes. However, it is better to wait for about 10 minutes to play it safe and keep away from any distortion.


Even a single coat is enough. However, i like applying two coats for a better effect.




But the nail paint is prone to chipping and discolouration. Within 3 days it starts chipping along the edges of long nails. As a Bengali, I make liberal use of my hand while eating and trust me, the nail paint in my right hands gets a yellowish tinge because of the turmeric used in food. I hate it when that yellowish tinge is retained by this nail colour and naturally, there is a marked discrepancy of shade! I would love it if the shade was strong enough to maintain its own identity herein.


Oriflame Pure Colour Nail Polish: Blue Ice Shade Pros

  • Packaging is neat as well as travel-friendly
  • Affordably priced
  • Ensures smooth application
  • Dries up pretty fast after application
  • Trendy shade with a glossy finish


Oriflame Pure Colour Nail Polish: Blue Ice Shade Cons

  • Prone to chipping
  • Gets discoloured easily
    (however, these are very common problems and most of the nail color brands/shades suffer from the hitches mentioned)
  • The name of the shade is mentioned in the bottom label, that too in fine print.


Final Word

This cool shade is worth a try. I would like to repurchase it as I love applying it on my nails, whether I wear a saree, a salwar suit or the staple jeans-top. Rating would be 4 out of 5.
