Manicure Makeover! Red Hot Cherry Blossom Mani Revision

Hey guys! The design I am sharing with you today is actually the makeover version of a manicure I posted a few weeks ago. The Red Hot Studded Cherry Blossom Manicure. After I did that manicure I decided to tweek it after a few days for a new look. Have you ever done that? I usually don't, but had the urge so I went for it. I used acrylic paint cause I feel that it's easier to paint over existing designs because it's so opaque & if you make a mistake you can wipe it off quickly with water or rubbing alchohol. That way if I didn't like how it came out I could just remove it. I painted black over the red on my accent nails, spiced up the thumb nail by adding some black to it and added a couple black dots to the middle finger nails. I then painted a matte top coat over just the black areas to create a different textured look & I also painted a matte top coat over the nails with the cherry blossoms on it. Not sure which mani I like better, although I do like the thumb nails better with this mani & I also like the matte finish I added. What do you guys think?

NYC 2014 Limited Edition City Samba Collection Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have a review for you of NYC New York Color's City Samba Collection. These are limited edition "In a Minute Quick Dry" polishes that just recently hit store shelves. There are 8 shades to choose from & I have 4 to show you today from this vibrant Brazil inspired collection.


THINK: A Brazilian beauty escape.

WHAT IT IS: A limited edition color inspired by the vibrancy of Brazil. NYC New York Color is bringing the sexy beaches and sizzling sun of Brazil to New York with a new, limited edition City Samba collection filled with Brazilian fun and flare. Look your sexiest yet with Carnivale-ready nail polishes, brilliant lip glosses, and shimmering bronzing powders.

The NYC New York Color City Samba Nail collection includes:

 In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish ($1.99): Ultra-quick dry nail enamel in electrifying summer shades. These high pigment colors are infused with a hint of shimmer for brilliant, tropically-hued nails that won’t fade. The nail strengthening formula is infused with magnesium, iron, copper, and calcium for beautiful nails and specifically formulated to dry in lightning speed time to a dazzling, high shine finish. The shades: Carnival Red,CopabananaJacaranda FlowerOcean BluePalm TreeTropicoral, Sweet Melon and Amazon Green

Tropicoral: This is bright, creamy coral shade that leans more to the orange side. It was opaque in just one coat.

NYC Tropicoral

Jacaranda Flower: This is a vibrant, creamy grape purple shade & took 2 coats to make opaque.

Amazon Green: I would describe this shade as like a tropical mint green. I don't have a color like this in my collection. It's pretty & bright with a frosty finish. I am not into green polishes, but I actually really like this shade a lot! Took 2 coats to make opaque.

NYC Amazon Green

Sweet Melon: This is a bright, creamy melon yellow shade. The color of a cantaloupe. I have nothing like this shade in my collection. Took 2 coats to make opaque.

Overall Review: I really like this collection! The polish shades are vibrant & fun, perfect for the summer season. I think they capture the vibrancy of beautiful Brazil & festive Carnivale. They dry quickly which I love & have a lot of pigment so I only needed 1-2 coats to achieve full opacity for the polishes that I personally tested. Another great thing about these polishes is they are only $1.99!!! For more info, check out What do you think?
