NYC Nail Polish in Park Ave

Monday, 9 April 2012

Recently I've been looking for a neutral shade of nail polish that I can wear with anything, but I'm a bit bored of the peachy nudes and French manicure pinks that I'd usually go for.

Browsing in Superdrug last week I spotted In A New York Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish by New York Color and picked up the shade Park Ave, which seemed to be the perfect choice.

I haven't really used any products by NYC before, apart from their Cheek Glow in Central Park Pink, which is a really nice blush for pale girls like myself, so I was looking forward to trying the nail polish.


NYC Nail Polish in Park Ave

"At last, a manicure that moves at the speed of Manhattan. NYC's In A New York Minute nail polish is slick, glossy polish that goes from wet to set in less than sixty seconds with a special control flow brush that dispenses just the right amount of colour for perfect application...even if you need to apply whilst heading across town in a taxi. Be vibrant, be brilliant and be bright for less."

Personally I found the consistency quite runny; the first coat was very sheer but another two coats soon solved that problem. I liked the brush and had no problem with smudging polish on to the skin surrounding the nail like I often do, although that's probably just me being clumsy.

The colour itself is a sort of dark mushroom; it's neither brown or grey, just a mix of the two.

The thing that most impresses me about this polish is its staying power. I managed to wear it for five days without top coat (I always forget) and got no chips whatsoever, which I found very impressive. And for only £1.79 from Superdrug, I think I found myself a bargain!

    1. I can understand why, I don't know about you but NYC is one of those brands that I tend to overlook. I don't think I will anymore though :) xx
