I'm very impressed by NYC. It's a bargain brand yet produces great nail polish. BFF1 bought me 5 NYC polishes for potential Konad use over Christmas and I've only gotten around to swatching them recently. The bottle color didn't look promising; just a dusty dark pink. However, out of the bottle: WOW! I don't own Miami Beet or My Throne For A Cranberry Scone, but I wonder if it's a dupe; the vibrant pink reminds me of those colors. (...but I can be sorely mistaken.)
Chinatown is another NYC standout. It's from their new line In A New York Color Minute. I liked it when I saw it on Steph's Closet, but I was a little disappointed seeing it in person. However, I only saw it indoors, but outside in the sunlight, it's freakin' fantastic! It looks dull indoors but sunlight makes the shimmer pop.
For around 2-3 bucks, NYC is a great deal. They have decent color variety (especially their limited editions such as Cognac Sparkle and Molten Metal) and great application. The wear on 235 wasn't great, but I'm a waitress so my nails see a lot of wear and tear.
I will be in New Orleans this weekend, so no posts until Sunday night at the earliest. I will definitely answer your comments and try to work on some suggestions when I return. I received my Zoya exchange polishes today and was completely impressed by my choices, especially one that I thought would be lackluster. On Tuesday, my picks from the Hello Kitty MAC collection (On The Prowl and Something About Pink) should be coming in. Ooh, I'm so excited!
