*Press SamplesHi there everyone, happy Hump Day! The week continues on! It's been a little rough getting back into working full time, not really the work itself, just the fact that I'm so dang exhausted. I've gotten home each night and am just a worthless lump under my heated blanket. Not so good when the in-laws are coming on Saturday!
Today I have two really interesting polishes to share with you! NYC is a drugstore brand that I've never tried before but I got to pick out some polishes to try. I was really pleasantly surprised. The Queen's Jewel's Collection is a new collection released for Fall made up of six Crystal Couture topcoats and three cremes. At the time I picked these out I was in full blown gallbladder sickness so I picked out my two favorites to share with you so as not to get overwhelmed :) Let's take a look below...
Rule the City-silver gunmetal metallic with red metallic glitter
This polish is such a cool polish, especially for something found at the drugstore. I've never seen a combination like this and it's a great color for Fall. The silver base didn't drown out the red which was really nice and the formula was really great. This polish was really opaque. I used two coats but it could easily be a one-coater. Definitely a standout polish!
NY Princess-deep dark purple/black jelly base with purple and blue glitters
My second choice was a sparkly one of course :) This polish is a pretty combo of a lighter metallic purple glitter and an aqua colored microglitter in a deep dark jelly base. Like the first polish, I was really impressed that the glitters weren't swallowed by the base polish. I chose to layer this polish over black, just because that's how I would personally chose to wear it so I figured that's how I would swatch it. I used one easy coat over black with no formula problems at all.
Overall I really enjoyed both polishes. I will admit I usually don't give drugstore polishes enough credit but both of these were really unique and had really great formulas!
