I bought this product cause it looked amazing in the bottle. I was sad when I got home and found out that the color took like 8 layers for it to look like the color in the bottle & on top of that it chips really easily.
Seriously, about the worse nail polish ever. The colour looks best while still in the bottle, and it almost chips faster than it dries. It stains easily. I suppose it was worth the try for the price, but definitely a miss!
Grand Central Station
The secret needs to be out that NYC's Grand Central makes one great topcoat! I found out that the Sneakerette (to Google her is to love her) used this polish as her topcoat and was intrigued enough to go buy. At that point I thought Seche Vite was the only top coat worthy but holy crap was I blown away. For $2 this polish applies and wears better than SV ever did for me. It takes a few more minutes to dry but has a much nicer bottle and brush and value. Try it try it try it!
I love these polishes, they are so cheap but are worth so much more! They aren't very thick but I like that, they dry fairly fast and don't dry with bubbles. They last for a long time and give a very smooth application. They stain a little but nothing too bad. They don't give off a lot of pigmentation so they do require a few coats. The only thing is that I wish they had more of a color selection, I would love to see more of a range to them than just the basics that a lot of nail polish companies have, either way I still love them!
Water Street Blue
Beautiful color, smooth application, fast drying, but it definitely stains your nails very very badly. Not sure if I'll use mine again or not. Maybe I should look for a similar color in another brand instead.
Love it long time!!!
I brought this polish be A.) it was under $2 - I'm trying to cut costs as much as possible; B) It dries in a minute -which is great because I always have a ding in my nails before they dry; C) want to experiment with new colors. This polish exceeded my expectations providing me with a professional looking manicure (my co workers didn't believe I did them myself).
I do a great deal of typing -for work, coursework and social networking- and the polish is still holding up on day 4 with little to no wear. Best dollar I've spent in a while.
N.Y.C. is great
Very cheap and i love the colours available. However i wish there were MORE colours as even though the colours already available are great, i'd like more of a range. Considering the price: this lasts an incredibly long time and stays on for a full week without chipping or a top coat! The consistency is thin though so two coats may be needed. Generally i am impressed with all N.Y.C. products
Cheap AND aweosme.
I bought this nail polish at Target for .97. I have always been a fan of N.Y.C, I feel like their products are reasonably good quality for the price MOST of the time.
These nail polishes are pretty awesome. They DO dry fast and the colors are lovely and pigmented enough to where I didn't need to apply more than two coats. What I was impressed with though, is the staying power of these things (used with a base coat and top coat) it took a full 4 DAYS before my nail polish started chipping off.
Not bad for under a dollar a bottle! I also like the size; they ARE smaller bottles but personally, I NEVER end up using up the larger bottled nail polishes before they get gooey or dry out.
I will repurchase these when they're gone. I have "sidewalkers" and "times square" and I LOVE both colors.
A must have for your polish collection
These little gems are amazing. I have tons of polishes but when I want to do something fast and fun, I reach for these. I love doing a zebra print with the hot pink and it dries super fast. Also, they seem to last a while before chipping but I do use a top coat. My daughter hates waiting around for her nails to dry so when she does let me do her nails, I choose these.
I really like this nail polish line. I've used OPI, Essie, China Glaze, Revlon, L'Oreal and for the price this nail polish is fantastic. For around 2 dollars, you get some decent color selections and they dry fairly quickly. This polish has lasted as long as 4 days chip-free for me when paired with a base coat and top coat. Some shades I find the consistency to be a little thin, but I actually like it that way. I own Canal St. (a dark burgundy brown with silver shimmer), West Village (a deep dark shimmery navy blue), Chelsea (a dark berry red), and recently purchased Times Square which is such an awesome and unique coral-red perfect for the summer! If you are on a budget, I would highly recommend you try out this brand.
