Replacing coolant question

Hoping someone can give me some peace of mind here. I flushed the coolant out using distilled water and put in 1/2 gallon of engine ice. The reservoir is filed with water now. I guess I didn't get it all out before putting the engine ice in. Is this ok? Can I top off the radiator with more distilled water or should I pay the $22 for more engine ice just to use a minimal amount?

TIA

Distilled is totally fine to add.

Thanks. I figured as much. I really didn't think the situation through. I'll just have to get it right before winter.
