Oh hey guys, it's Cheap Polish Tuesday-Well OK, it's not really but it's gotta be Tuesday SOMEWHERE in the world, right? Actually scratch that, I think Pacific Time is one of the last to hold onto the days. But let's pretend. I'm here after all so we might as well make the best of it. Today I have a polish from NYC New York Color. I picked this one up from Wal-Mart for a mere $1.50! Yeah man, that's even cheaper than the dollar store polish I found that one time! Let's move on.
This is NYC New York Color Tudor City Teal which reminds me of something but we'll get to that later. Tudor City is a dusty to the extreme mint teal creme. It reminds me of those vintage seafoam guitars, vintage seafoam dentist chairs. Vintage seafoam anything, really. Formula wise, it wasn't too shabby. It was definitely on the sheer side and it covered OK in two coats but a third was required for maximum opacity. Here's my swatch in two coats, with no top coat:
Not bad for a base creme! How does it do with some glitter swag? I put on one coat of Rainbow Honey Magic Cake to find out. (Oddly enough my Magic Cake mini is running low! I guess it's not that surprising though.):
Not shabby at all, am I right? Anyway what I was saying before... Doesn't this remind you of a little infamous polish called: Essie Turquoise and Caicos? It reminds me of the same type of dusty seafoam that I remember. I may have to do a comparison soon but off the top of my head - damn they look similar! Except one has a better formula!
What do you think of this polish? Worth $1.50 or what? Does it also remind you of a little infamous dusty seafoam colour as well?
