♥ NYC 'ChinaTown' ♥

- NYC 'China Town'  3 coats no T.C. -

Wow - I'm sold! This is another NYC 'in a New York minute' polish that I am wearing. I have already worn 'West Village', and have positive things to say about both of these polish's. I will definitely be adding a few more of these NYC in a New Your Minute polish's to my collection. This polish has a beautiful finish and color. It is really dark, but is beautiful in average lighting- I would love to see this just a shade or two lighter, because the shimmer in it is outstanding. Why did I keep passing this by?

Here is 3 coats with no top coat.... I did a little experiment on the wear and tear of this polish. It has held up well, and hasn't chipped or any other weird scenarios on my acrylic false nails ( Fing'rs brand = side bar). I have already done some pretty 'tip wear disguise' as I am out of cotton balls and need this polish to last another day!

The tip wear is evident in my outdoor photos, which were taken 2 days after application. As I wrote about NYC 'West Village', this polish has a good consistency, applies easily, dries quite fast, and smells just fine. I think if was more patient I could have gotten away with just 2 coats - but I quickly slapped this on as soon as possible. These NYC polish's are widely available and it says on the website they are carried at walmart stores USA & Canada - I got mine at my local grocery store. I hope that this line of NYC nail polish will be readily available in the future, because there are awesome!



yes... I am holding a bottle of T.C. in these photos below but I did not apply T.C. to this polish, NYC 'China Town'. This is the 2nd time wearing this NYC in a new your minute quick dry nail polish and I read on another blog that this looks pretty good after a few days without top coat. It is definitely very shiny, but I did develop some tip wear without top coat.

So pretty! I almost bought this yesterday, but I couldn't decide between this and West Village.

How's the formula on these? I have East Village, but I haven't tried it yet. (Actually, it was a bit of an impulse buy. I was on a scavenger hunt, and we needed blue nail polish, I ran into Target and bought the cheapest blue polish I could find.)

I really like these from NYC. I only have one, bryant park, because one day i really needed a light neutral color.
I only wish they had more interesting colorsfinishes. But as far as quality, they are quite good!

Never underestimate something based on price

So pretty! This has restored my faith in NYC nail polishes! I brought East Village and it was so sheer and awful. China Town and West Village look lovely

♥ Jean - I put off purchasing these for a long, long time. I had seen these a year or two ago and just never grabbed them. The formula on these is great, they apply easily with n problems, the brush is fine and they dry really fast. I will definitely pick up more.

♥ GildedAngel - Thanks= it is a lovely color, it looks really nice in strong light.

♥ Antonea - I hope they add a fewmore colors to theier line, possibly in the future they will do a 'Florida' or 'California' collection.

♥ Kelly - Thanks! I always try to purchase the most pigmented polish's possible, this means less coats!

♥ CucumbPear - It is an amazing color! I am sure there is some pwoplw who want austrian nail polish .... you should get onto make up alley and see if some oen would swap with you♥
