New York Color - In a New York Minute - Quick Dry Nail Polish - 203 - Precious Peacock
Forumla - 3/5 - This stuff is a runny, almost watery consistency which makes it super thin and streaky and sometimes a real pain in the butt to apply.
One coat will not do for this polish. After 2 coats it's alright, but 3 really makes the color deep and it totally stands out. When you do the first coat, you think it's going to be the crappiest polish ever, but it gets WAY better after the second lol. It's a big difference between the first and second coats.
Dry Time - 3/5 - I would not consider this a "quick dry" polish, even though it states it in the name. It doesn't take way too long, but it's just not an awesome dry time. If you do really thin coats and wait about 2 minutes between each one, you might be able to get away with calling it "quick dry" lol.
Wear - 1/5 - Every color I've ever had has chipped before day 4 of wear, even with a base and/or topcoat such as Sinful Colros Basecoat or Sally Hansen Insta Dri Top Coat.
I've been using these polishes since my middle school days and honestly, they just aren't worth it. Even with a good base and top coat, they will chip after just 2-3 days. I loved them when I was young because they are some of the cheapest at the drugstore, however, since I've gotten older I've realized, it's just a better deal to spend the extra $2-3 and get a polish that actually lasts more than 2 days. If you'd like to see some reviews on other polishes please check them out here... I would definitely recommend the New Flower Beauty polishes, they are terrific and still inexpensive.
