NYC – In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish – Times Square


Today I have some swatches for you, from NYC (New York Color) – In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish (wow that was long name), number 224 – Times Square.

I must say that it’s a really pretty red colour. Good for summer.
On the photos I am wearing two coats of this nail polish without any top coat.

It is supposed to be Quick Drying and Quick Applicable nail polish and indeed it is. One layer dries very fast, second just as any good nail polish. Formula and the brush are very good, I didn’t notice any problems with the application. I have been wearing it the whole day and the polish on nails looks just fine.

I think it’s a good nail polish in an affordable price.

Thank you for coming!

Hello Kitty Nails

Do you like Hello Kitty? I probably don’t know anybody who would answer NO to this question. I absolutely love this character. For me Hello Kitty is the symbol of cuteness.
So I made Hello Kitty nails.

I used acrylic paint. When I am painting some small details on nails I prefer to use this paint not the regular nail polish. Nail polish is drying much faster, and when something goes wrong with the painting it’s difficult to remake it. With acrylic paint you can remove part of pattern if you do it quick, before paint dries.

As a base I used pink nail polish. I think red would fit here also. I used pink, black, white and yellow paint (yellow for Hello Kitty nose, but maybe it’s impossible to see it on the photos). When paint was dry I applied top coat to get shiny and smooth nail surface.
