My Perfect Polish

NYC In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in Sunset Park Pink

I've hit a real pinnacle in nail polish collecting. Not only have I scaled down my shopping, I have also come to realize which colours and formulas I truly enjoy wearing. This has allowed me to get rid of my old shimmery separated shades, and indulge in more creamy pastels. It's incredible how much more I enjoy doing my nails now that my collection is smaller, cleaner and filled only with my favourites.

Just last week, while browsing around my local Rexall Pharma Plus, I spotted a teeny display of New York Color's Spring 2014 Collection. There was one pretty pink polish left, and I couldn't help but pick it up. After realizing that it was under $2, I was sold. This is one of their "In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish" in the shade Sunset Park Pink. The colour is absolutely ideal for my skin tone. It doesn't wash me out, nor is it too vibrant. Just the perfect shade of muted, sweet pink.

The polish lived up to its name, seeing as how each coat (I applied two) dried quite quickly. I experienced no smudging and the application wasn't very streaky. Not only was this creamy, near opaque finish easy to work with, the brush is also pretty great quality. This is a limited edition "Color Crush" shade from the City Bloom Collection. I just recently featured Zoya's Dot in a nail art post, seen here, which is a good high-end dupe. Dot is slightly cooler and less peach toned, which makes it a bit more vibrant on my skin. If you happen to pass by a drugstore that could potentially be carrying this collection, I'd highly recommend checking it out. There are a few other shades in the display, including a minty blue, light lilac, and possibly a yellow. Although I purchased this bottle just over a week ago, it should still be available. 

Happy painting!
