New Nail Polishes from NYC! Crystal Couture & Strip Me Off base coat
NYC were my go-to brand for nail polishes for a long time. I hadn't bought any of their polishes in a long time though (trying to cut back as I already have so many!) but while passing the NYC stand in my local chemist I noticed some new beauties… Crystal Couture! I couldn't leave without getting at least one, so I chose the sparkly purple named "NY Princess".
Also I bought the Strip Me Off base coat to give it a try! Glitter nail polishes are such a pain to remove so I thought this would come in handy!
NY Princess is such a beautiful nail polish! I applied one layer of Strip Me Off base coat and three coats of NY Princess. It is a gorgeous shade of purple packed full of glitters. I love wearing this, it is perfect for the party season. The other shades in the Crystal Couture collection looked very festive too, a beautiful glittery red and gold! I must get them next time!
The Strip Me Off base coat works really well, all my nails peeled off in one piece. The only problem was, they started peeling off throughout the day, when I wanted my nail polish to remain intact! I don't think I would use this again for fear of losing all my nails before the day is out! It is rather therapeutic however being able to peel off your nail polish with such ease, absent-mindedly while watching TV!
NYC remains my top brand for budget nail polishes. In fact I think their nail polishes perform better than some expensive ones I have tried. I can't remember exactly how much these ones cost me, I have a feeling they were £1.99 each. What a bargain!
What do you think of these nail polishes? Should I give Strip Me Off another try?
