NYC Nail Polish Collection & Swatches (Pic Heavy!)

My NYC Nail Polish Collection

Woohoo! Back to blogging!

For my first post-hiatus blog entry I decided to swatch all of my New York Color brand nail polishes.

I’ve been collecting NYC polishes for years and I’ve built up quite a collection. Honestly, I like them as much as Zoya polishes and way more than other drugstore brands including OPI and Essie. I actually used to have more NYC polishes but sold off a bunch that didn’t look so flattering against my skin tone.

The only shades I didn’t swatch were Grand Central Station (clear) and Matte Me Crazy! (clear, matte top coat) for obvious reasons.

I tried not to include any doubles but a Time Square dupe got past me. I have to say, though, that they’re two slightly different versions. Times Square 224 is a little more orange than Times Square 224B. The difference is extremely subtle and barely noticeable.

Thoughts after seeing the NYC polishes all spread out: Too many! Must purge.

Disclaimer: the NYC nail polishes I own are a combination of permanent, discontinued and limited edition colors and were purchased with my own money.
