Beauty Review: NYC Nail Glossies Beauty Must-Have!


Last weekend I had to pick up some products for my shoot and I didn't want to spend an absurd amount so I checked out the drugstore near my house, Pharmaplus. I needed a couple of shadows, some lashes, and nail polish. I've been looking for a hot pink nail colour for a while and was really disappointed by Maybelline's Salon Expert Nail Color in Hot Pink because it looked more red than pink on me. NYC's Nail Glossies in Fusion Pink (with Vinyl Shine and Pro Vitamin B5) has ended my search! The colour is spectacular and deliciously vibrant! I didn't want anything muted so this was absolutely perfect. The price was even more perfect - $2.99 CDN!! It's such a steal and almost wrong that something so awesome is that cheap but I'm not complaining! I honestly hate to spend over $10 on nail lacquer because I work with my hands all the time so it never lasts as long as I'd like. When I saw it on the model, I couldn't wait to get home and try it on me! The colour is exactly like it is in the bottle. It coats the fingertips evenly with no streaks and you only need 2 coats. The picture above is Day 4 (excuse my DIY manicure!) and right now I'm on Day 6 it's only chipped a bit and I'm always using my hands especially with my son. I also picked up Turquoise Seas, a gorgeous blue-green to alternate with my pink nails for Spring! I'll do another review soon. Hot pink tips is such a nice change from the dark nails especially in the dead of winter. I'll definitely be going to pick up more! I hope NYC comes out with more vibrant hues for Spring/Summer! What colours will grace your finger tips this Spring? Happy shopping!

Hi Joy! That is a cute colour...do you think Shoppers would also carry this line of nail polishes by NYC? Thanks!

Hey Kam!
No, as far as I know Pharmaplus only carries NYC products. You'll love the colour! Thanks for stopping by!

I guess the NYC turquoise blue is a great shade to flaunt.

That's a gorgeous shade! Lately I've been into dark shades of nailpolish but sometimes a girl just needs a bright splash of pink across her nails. I'm surprised you found such a good nailpolish in NYC. I've looked at their nailpolishes before but figured since they were so cheap, they'd be streaky as heck. I'll def consider NYC next time.
