♥ N.Y.C. - West Village ♥


Another drugstore stunner I overlooked. I kept passing these polish's because they didn't  look like anything special to me. These have been on my 'to-buy-eventually' list for a while now. However I have seen quite a few of these swatched on the blogs & on MUA recently so I thought I should grab them so I do not have another 'Shooting Star' & 'Red Carpet' incident.

On my RING finger, I have 2 coats of NYC 'Chinatown' with 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat, and the rest of my nails are NYC 'West Village" 2 coats with 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat. I excited to see what I will come up with in some future frankens using these two polish's. They are extremely pigmented, apply very well and dry, super, super SUPER fast!. I have read that these are.97 cents in the USA. In Canada, these are $1.87 at Walmart - But I bought them at my local grocery store for $2.27.

In indoor lighting, I would say these are BBB = Black But Better . But in most regular lighting ie; office lighting a s well as outdoors the real color is apparent. I will definitly be getting back-ups of these two for future frankens.


♥ Yeeeeeah sunshine & nice weather ♥

I love the blues....the problem I have is that I buy these at my "local" (40 minutes away) Target store and they NEVER have it in stock. I even checked there today....who else sells this?
Looks great on you!

♥ Charis - Thanks! I thought about this being a good base color for SSN. I have never seen it in real life, but I may try a franken with it anyway.

♥ cathryn - Thanks - that star thing is a perfume bottle 'Angel' by Therri Mueller.

♥ GildedAngel - Thanks - I loooove this blue

♥ yardsticks 4 lunatics - Thanks! I'm pretty sure walmart USA sells this. I have found the shelves empty off the cool colors of NYC polish as ell.... you might have to pop into those stores a few more times.

♥ Michele - Thanks! This is a great polish

♥ Delaynee - Thanks - this is a greta blue & it's so cheap, too!
