I like the names of the NYC cosmetics, and I like the colour range and I like the prices. I think they’re pretty funky for a value brand. I’ve yet to find an indispensible product in their range but they have a lot of nice, wearable things to try out.
Like the other shade I bought “Rosy Knows” this nail polish is in the Expert Last range claiming to last up to 7 days. Like the other shade I bought, I don’t think 7 days is realistic for this polish. Wear can be extended with something like Sally Hansen Insta Dri Top Coat which I love! Without it, it wears like a regular, not-very-long-wear polish. That aside, what’s it like?
It’s a pearly, shiny neutral champagne beige shade that looks paler on the nail than in the bottle and dries sheer-but opaque after two coats.
I like this look, it’s a pearly take on the nude trend and it’s pretty without being overly hip which makes it great for work or formal events. In an ideal world it would have the sticking power of something like Maybelline Forever Strong, which really can rock a week on the nails, but even so, it’s a little cheaper at £2.49 from Superdrug.
