N.Y.C. Polish Swatches

I got a request from Tanya her blog is visions in color to do a swatch of some N.Y.C. colors. I only have around 4 so I decided to do a whole post for them.

Times Square Tangerine Creme

This photographed a little darker than it actually is. The bottle picture is the most accurate. This is a true orange creme. It's not too bright and not muted. I like this color a lot and for 99 cents you can't really go wrong!

Fuchsia Shock Creme

I wouldn't call this fuchsia, but it's a medium pink bubble gum creme. It's a pretty creme. It's a bright color, but it's not neon or fluorescent.

Charming Rose Creme

This is my problem with N.Y.C. This is obviously not a creme, yet it is labeled that way? The same goes for some other polishes I've seen in stores. This is what I'd call a muave frost. This is a pretty color, but honestly not one I'd really reach for in my stash. It's OK.

Canal Street

I'd call this maroon-brown with gold shimmer throughout. I love this color! These type of shades are my favorite for fall and winter I love them on my tips and toes. I had a bit of trouble with the application of this though. I'm not sure what it was but it seemed to go on dry and streaky. I didn't apply it any different than I'd apply any other polish. This is a fast drying polish so I think if I applied it a bit thicker and didn't wait as much between coats it would of gone on more smoothly. The overall result looks great though you couldn't tell I had trouble!

That's it for my N.Y.C. swatches. I hope this helps you out Tanya! Thank you for your requests! If anyone has any other requests make sure the check out My Stash and send me an email letting me know what you'd like to see!

Have a great Saturday!
