Buy and Blog: NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel

Hello, my Pretties!

I made this purchase back on February 28th and I've been dying to share this haul with you but never got around to it.  Better late than never!

I had gone to my local grocery store, H-E-B, to buy the usual: eggs, milk, juice... but I got distracted by bins of colorful makeup at the store's entrance.  There were NYC nail polishes, Wet n Wild nail polishes, and lots of Revlon goodies.  So naturally, I stopped to browse.

I had all the Wet n Wild nail polishes that they had on sale.  The ones that they did have that I didn't have in my collection, I didn't care to buy.

But there were some new NYC nail polishes that I didn't have.  And with the coupon of $1 off any 2 NYC nail polishes, I couldn't resist.  Each NYC nail polish is regular $0.93 so with the coupon, each nail polish came out to only $0.43!

Here are the four I picked up:

NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel.
From Left to Right:
140 Empire State Blue, 142 Preppy Pink,
147 Lexington Lilac, and 151 Skyline Blue.

NYC Nail Enamel in 140 Empire State Blue.

After two coats of Empire State Blue.

Empire State Blue is a really pretty blue.  It applied so sheer at first but with the second coat, the coverage was much better.  It's a mid tone blue with shimmers throughout. 

NYC Nail Enamel in 142 Preppy Pink.

After two coats of Preppy Pink.

Love!  The one word that describes how I feel about his nail polish.  It is so cute.  I keep calling it Pretty Pink instead of PREPPY Pink.  Haha.  It's like a cross between bubblegum pink and Barbie pink.  This one is a crème finish so you know that's a major plus for me.

Lexington Lilac is also a crème and so therefore, it is also one of my favorites.  I am truly in like with this color.  It is so perfect for Easter which is only a few days away.  I like that it is not all that pastel.  It is pastel but not a pale pastel.  You can totally see it's purpleness!
NYC Nail Enamel in 151 Skyline Blue.

And this one was the one I was most excited to get and the one that I was the most disappointed in.  DISAPPOINTED.  I grabbed this one first because it screamed "Cinderella!" to me.  I saw the pale blue and the silver micro glitters and I couldn't help but think of my favorite princess.  But as you can see, the polish leaves much to be desired.  After two coats, the application still looks blotchy.  In comparison to the other three nail polishes, this one was much thicker.  Hence the bad application??
Any how, 3 out of 4 isn't bad.  In order of love for me is:
1. Preppy Pink
2. Lexington Lilac
3. Empire State Blue
4. Skyline Blue.
Which ones do you like?
So, that's all for now.  But--big BUT--this is part one is my two part haul post.  I got some Revlon too.  Just a tease, I know.
Stay tuned!

    1. I really wanted to love Skyline Blue. I don't know why the application was worse than the others and I don't know how to fix the problem. But it's really pretty!

  2. Love all the colors, but really loving Empire State Blue. I need more blues in my collection :)

    1. Empire State Blue is gorgeous! One coat is very thin but after the second, the true color shows! It's lovely :)
