Recently, I won an NYC give-away on ArtDonatella's lovely blog; and as I have never tried out their make-up before (purely because it wasn't in my local chemists, it's much more available in Dublin!), now was a good a time as any.
As part of my fabulous prize, I received two of NYC's Expert Last Nail Polishes. Both colours are amazing, but I went for Shade 115, Ink Stain first. It's a stunning colour, which looks navy at first; with a more vivid royal blue shine. I literally sat on my bed for a few minutes, looking at the bottle at various angles, in the light, just to see all the blue hues running through it!
My hopes were definitely high, and I wasn't disappointed. The polish applies like a dream - perfectly opaque in just one coat, and the brush is so thick that just two strokes covered my nails completely. I didn't exactly time myself, but it dried really quickly, which I was delighted with.
Similar to the way it looks in the bottle, at first glance, it appears to be a very shiny navy or dark blue. But under the light, you can see a faint royal blue shimmer. It reminds me a bit of Barry M's Nail Paint in 292 Navy, but for a smaller price. Nothing in the NYC range is more than €3.99, so you can afford to try out a few colours!
Such a gorgeous shine to it!
I'm definitely in love, and can't wait to try out my other shade (235, Fine Red Wine) to make sure it wasn't just a fluke!
