Loving NYC!

First glace at this polish reminded me of the Eyeko's Coral Polish ruling the blogs. I had to get it! Why are we overloaded with NOTD's in the blogosphere these days? Anyways, here's mine :p Please excuse the clumsy application.

The color may look red in pictures but its a stunning coral with a red base to it. It looks legally appropriate for this season in my opinion. Look at the high shine finish it has, gorgeous. I love wearing such reds and corals as they make my hands look so feminine and pretty. Plus they flatter all skin tones well. This one's called 'Madison Avenue'.

Another product that I am loving right now is NYC Quick dry nail polish in 'Uptown'. This is such a gorgeous color! Reminds me of those tiny Barbie shoes and clothes I had. Some may find it a bit too typical, girly-girl or strictly for teenagers but I quite like it :)

I paid less than £5 for both the Nail Polishes, which is dirt cheap in my opinion. The consistency of these polishes is very runny and watery but I in fact like that much better than thick gloopy varnishes which take ages to dry.

You have to be careful with this getting all over your nail bed though. Just work with little at a time. Be assured, once they dry and settle they become almost chip resistant and stay on for ever.

The pink one has slight shimmer to it which is hardly visible. They dry super quick, in about a minute and leave a high shine glossy finish. One coat of this is truly pigmented.

Trust me, they would look much more glamorous on well groomed nails unlike mine. All the girly-girls out there, give these nail paints a try for sure!

Dodge Barry M and OPI for once, come NYC baby.

"Madison Avenue" looks great for summer. I have "Manhattan", a dark plummy colour and I agree, NYC polishes could definitely rival OPI and Barry M!
