Good afternoon everyone! I hope you’re having a great day so far. I have 4 nail polishes from NYC New York Color to show you that are perfect to dress up your nails during the holiday season. Click through after the jump to see all 4!
I started off with two coats of NYC New York Color Animal Instinct, and then I just decided to free hand stripes with NYC New York Color Black Elixir. It didn’t come out too shabby, did it?

What do you think? To tell the truth, I’m really glad the first two prompts are easy because I’m feeling awful! LOL! I hope you have a great day, and I’ll see you tomorrow for “pumpkin faces”!
Good Friday morning! How has your week gone? I’ll be honest, the past few days have been miserable – one of my kids has been sick (…and whiny) so I’m totally out of energy at this point. Ugh! haha! Let’s get to today’s nail polishes from NYC New York Color: the Midnight Beauty collection.
*Phew*! That’s a mouthful, isn’t it? Good morning, you wonderful readers. As the title of this post states, I have 5 simple nail art manicures that I created with the NYC New York Color City Samba collection (reviewed here). Let’s get right to it!
First up is a simple gradient with NYC New York Color Sweet Melon and Tropicoral. I first painted my nails with Sweet Melon, let dry, then painted a small, porous, flat sponge with Sweet Melon and Tropicoral and applied it on my nails.
Next is diagonal stripes with NYC New York Color Tropicoral and Jacaranda Flower. Again, I started off with Tropicoral on all my nails. I waited for that to thoroughly dry before applying cut up chevron strips from Nail Vinyls to each nail. Then I applied a thick coat of Jacaranda Flower and quickly pulled off the strips.
NYC New York Color Jacaranda Flower and Amazon Green are next! I started off with Jacaranda Flower on all my nails. Then using the straw technique (tutorial here), I applied Amazon Green. I did not use top coat for this manicure.
I hope you enjoy all 5 of these simple manicures! My favorite is probably the gradient, but I want to hear which of these is your favorite! Let me know in the comments. 🙂 Until tomorrow,
I have to tell you, I used so many polishes for this manicure! I used OPI You’re So Vainilla with SOPI I Gotta Blush on You sponged on top, for the base. The other polishes used were: OPI Planks a Lot, I’ve Got the Blues for Red; SOPI Why Yellow There, Caught with My Khakis Down; Sinful Colors Calypso and Lavander; NYC Sweet Melon; Revlon Stormy Night; China Glaze Refreshmint.
I have to tell you, I’m really happy with how this turned out, though it took forever! Let’s take a look at everyone else’s creative manicures:
Thanks so much for stopping by, I’d love to hear your thoughts on my manicure today. 🙂 Until the next time,
