NYC In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish

Overall, I am a fan of the NYC cosmetics line, since the quality is surprisinly good for such a low price. I’ve already reviewed their Color Wheel Mosaic Eye Powder and Ultra Moist Lipwear (both thumbs up).

I like non-traditional nail polish colors, so when I saw NYC’s In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in 206B: East Village (below), I decided to try it out.

With the very first coat, I started to have doubts. The color is great in the bottle, but applied to the nails, it is very faint, transparent, and weak. With 2 coats, the color was still uneven and nowhere near as vibrant as in the bottle. Personally I don’t care to apply 4 coats of nail polish to get the color it is supposed to be, so this was a major strike against this product.

I painted my nails 2 days ago and applied a clear coat, but the color has already chipped on 4 fingers and started peeling off. To me, $1.99 is still too much to pay for a nail color that applies unevenly, that isn’t the same color as in the bottle, and doesn’t last anyway.

I’m disappointed to give this product 0 stars out of 5. Except for a low price, there is really no redeeming quality of this nail polish. I’ve tried this color twice and had miserable results both times, so it’s going in the trash now.

  1. I have to agree with all of you, the nail polish is not that great! I had been using NYC nail polish for about two years now and it HAD been great. The polish usually lasted a surprisingly long time without chipping off, but recently that has not been the case. I recently purchased the nail polish in Big Apple Red Creme and the color is beautiful! It is a vibrant red, but I am very disappointed! The polish started chipping of the very next day! Ladies, don't even waste your money on this product!!!
