NYC Triple Threat

Today I'd like to share a mani I did with three NYC New York Color In a New York Color Minute polishes.  They are, respectively, *Scenestealer Grey, *Sparkle Top Coat in Big City Dazzle and *Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat.  First up, the pics:
The bottles: Scenestealer Grey, Big City Dazzle, Matte Me Crazy

I started with two coats of Scenestealer Grey, shot outdoors, no flash

and indoors, with flash.

Then I added one coat of Big City Dazzle to my ring finger, shot outdoors, no flash

and indoors, with flash.

Finally, I added a coat of Matte Me Crazy to all nails, shot outdoors, no flash

and indoors, with flash.

Scenestealer Grey is a really pretty, shiny charcoal gray shimmer.  It went on really smoothly and easily, though it did show brushstrokes, which was a bummer.  It's a beautiful color, though, and one I really liked a lot.  It was nicely opaque in two coats.

Big City Dazzle is a fun top coat, chock full of blue and magenta glitter and tiny silver glitter.  It dried really quickly and was smooth to the touch, score!

Matte Me Crazy is the first matte polish I've ever worked with and as someone who was sort of on the fence about matte polishes, never having seen one in person, I am now a convert.  It gave both the grey and the glitter a completely different look, drying quickly and smoothly.  While I am still crazy for shine, this top coat gives me a quick and easy way to give any many a total transformation.  LOVE that!

Head on over to NYC New York Color to check out their current selection of shades and top coats and to find out where to purchase them near you.  I am super happy to have all three of these beauties in my collection!

What are your thoughts on mattified polish?  As always, I'd love to hear what you think!

Thanks! I had heard it was pretty over glitter but I just couldn't picture it. I'm really glad I tried it. Now I appreciate the fun that is matte, lol.

I love mattified glitter! The grey base is really pretty, too. I think it's good to have a matte topcoat in your collection now. More versatility ;)

Very true. I'm really excited to try mattifying other manis now! :)
